Stanton Warriors’ top five club tracks right now

Kings of the mid-00s breakbeat movement, the Stantons have consistently been leading players in the international bass scene where, in their own words, “the lines between bass house, future garage, electro, breaks and bass music are increasingly blurred: and it’s about time.” As the London duo prepare for a quick visit to Australia over the NYE period, we pulled them aside to get the five biggest tunes in their sets right now.

#5 AC Slater – Donkey Shake

“The Trouble & Bass head honcho gets even the most stubborn arse shaking down on this slab of Brooklyn-produced bassline beatdown. Back in the day Slater remixed our track Precinct and we have been fans ever since.”

#4 Lux Groove – From The Back

“One man’s bass house is another’s breakbeat. But who cares about genres when you have a deep beat-y groover like this to get down with. Heard Hostage from Black Butter records drop this and went to investigate. The lines between bass house, future garage, electro, breaks and bass music are increasingly blurred and it’s about time. Play loud.”

#3 Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo – Kneadin

“UK bass chick and Dirtybird Birmingham dude show us it’s not just about the 4/4 grooves. This breakbeat-esque stomper has been jacking up the crowds all over the place in our sets of late. Chris Lorenzo is also half of Cause & Affect with Kane, whose remix of our track Cut Me Up smashed it.”

#2 Je Boogie – Shakedown

“This dude hails from Lithuania and this is his first production. He’s clearly onto something with this ragga-electro-bass-beat-boomer. We play in Eastern Europe a lot and it’s nice to see new talent coming up from that part of the world. Definitely one to watch.”

#1 Freestylers – Falling (Stanton Warriors Remix)

“Yes, it’s our own remix, but credit to the vocalist Laura Steel and the Freestylers for the song. Track has been working really well towards the end of our sets and represents one of the directions we are exploring at the moment with heavyweight bouncing beats and stripped back sounds. Less is more when played exceptionally loud. Mid-range dubstep basslines won’t be found here.”
