You’re comfortably nuzzled in your foldable camping chair, right outside your tent. The sweltering summer sun is starting to retreat, as you finally catch a few wisps of cool breeze graze just across your forehead. Amongst the sounds of distant stages and afternoon wildlife, you catch the attention of a familiar tone slithering towards you. You recognize this tonal snake as a string of words in the form of a question. Finally, it reaches your ear holes.
“Hey, so what is west coast bass?”
With widened eyes, you spring up in disbelief that one would even need such clarification.
“Also, what the fuck is 'weird bass'?”
You leap out of your chair aghast. Grabbing your poorly guided campmate, you make a dash towards rumbling subwoofers. Spacey synth work and rippling delays meticulously merge into a lush, warm soundscape. 808’s and bass lines nothing short (or thin) of ridiculously phat, take charge at center stage. Crystalloid hi-hats trickle around an undoubtedly knocking beat, accented by skippy snare rolls that make a gold chain instantaneously manifest around your neck. Yup, that’s definitely a Shlump set.
Known by family and friends as Michael Petzel, Shlump is a very familiar name around the California festival circuit and underground bass music scene. He has adopted a signature sound through his continuous efforts of pushing refreshingly new beats. Banger after banger, Shlump has indefinitely left a mark on the scene as one of the freshest new dealers of that west-coast bass style.
His recent activity has seen him release his album Like a Drug, out on Liquid Stranger's Wakaan label. Shlump masterfully blends a myriad of musical styles, which result in one cohesive audio excursion. From the hazy atmosphere in Arabian Acid, to the aggressive bass-play in “Rude,” Shlump’s album Like a Drug is like a delectable box of assorted chocolates.
