The 7th track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the Heidelberg (Germany) based nu rave act Basszilla. Be ready to discover a bunch of different influences all gathered in one track.

Started in 2014, the project brings a rather unique mixture of EDM, acid, nu-rave and death-electro. Basszilla released his first EP in May 2014 which was released and distributed digitally by the label darkTunes Music Group. The project, actually based around a French born producer, also released several “Beastmix” 1 hour live DJ set recordings which are available as free downloads on iTunes and soundcloud. The most recent release is – and you read it really well – the “Fury lesbian freak attack” 5-track single released earlier this year.


You can listen/download the track “Growl of the Owl” below.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
