Have yourself a bass-filled Valentine's Day

Whether or not you celebrate the aggrandized Hallmark holiday that is Valentine’s Day, enjoy these romantic mixes from some of the finest producers in the bass music world.

First up is the latest installment of Luvstep, by Dirty South Joe and Flufftronix. The previous Luvstep mixes have perfectly encapsulated the leading edge of romantic, melodramatic dubstep, a standard this mix meets. Tracks by Clams Casino, Sinjin Hawke, and Clicks & Whistles mingle with exclusives and obscurities. A highlight is the pitch-perfect Sibian and Faun track “I’m Sorry.”


For the fifth time, leading bass purveyor Hudson Mohawke drops a mix of classic slow jams in honor of the day. This is the music your parents would get down to, and it must have worked, because you exist. HudMo clearly knows his stuff. And in a tasteful – and fitting – tribute to Whitney Houston, he closes with her classic ballad “Didn’t We Almost Have It All.”


Deadboy is no stranger to the soulful side of dance music, and his offering is somewhere between the previous two. His mix for London’s Wifey club night moves effortlessly from Hall and Oates to Dizzy Rascal to (HudMo’s remix) of Blackstreet. There’s something for everyone here; think of this mix as a heart-shaped box of chocolates for music lovers.
