Exclusive: DJ Muggs Explains ‘Bass For Your Face’ Project; Performing with Kraftwerk

(AllHipHop News) Soul Assassin leader and long-time Cyprus Hill DJ and producer DJ Muggs recently spoke with about his upcoming project that is dropping on Ultra Records later this year.

The solo album, titled Bass For Your Face, is a project that Muggs describes as a glitch, dub-step and electronic project featuring several well known Hip-Hop artists.

Muggs, who produced songs like Ice Cube’s “Check Yo Self” and House of Pain’s “Jump Around,” has always had an ear for creating Hip-Hop classics.

“Its all bass, all big bass, and a few collaborations on it man.  One is like Roc Marciano from New York, Chuck D. from Public Enemy, also Rahzel and the rest of it is pretty much glitched-up and chopped up vocals,” DJ Muggs told in an exclusive interview.

Ultra Records is home to some of electronic and dub-step’s most popular artists, housing a roster that includes Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Benny Benassi, Armin van Vuuren and David Guetta.

“For this record it’s a Hip-Hop scene record, but it has elements of glitch, dub-step, electronic and Hip-Hop.  So if I’m going to put a record out, I’m going to make sure I go to the best label to put that music out,” DJ Muggs said.

The lead single, “Snap Ya Neck Back” features platinum UK rapper Dizzee Rascal and has an accompanying video that’s has received over 100,000 views in just a few weeks.

The album also features an appearance from grime MC P-Money

Currently DJ Muggs doesn’t have any work planned with Cyprus Hill, although he did DJ for them at the Smoked Out Tour in recent weeks and is currently DJing approximately 200 shows per year.

“I’m about to head back to Europe for a minute, then back to do the Ultra Festival in Miami, I’m playing with Skrillex and Kraftwerk,“ Muggs explained. “I just came from Canada, Canada was real sick, it was out at some ski lodge and there were 2,000 kids out. I did the Cyprus Hill Smoke Out, 20,000 kids, played with Korn and a DJ named Rusko, and the Low End Theory. Anything with a lot of bass I like to play.”

Ultra Music Festival is a yearly outdoor electronic music festival that occurs in March in the city of Miami usually during the annual Winter Music Conference.

This year the event will be March 23rd-25th and expects to draw well over 100,000 attendees.

  • A difficult technique to make use of is the heel-toe technique. Here the first note of the composition is played with the heel, with the feet being suspended over the foot board. For the budding drummers the tip is to create the technique of playing the double bass drum in the right way.
