Firstly, would like to welcome everyone to the first Rutherford House package collection. The three of us ( Oscar, Michael and Hugh ) want to share the best tracks in either Bass, Deep or Progressive House each week respectively, uncovering hidden gems, or even dance classics. This week, we have Bass house, a genre that the three of us are deeply immersed in and listen to repeatedly. With a lot of the main bass house artists deriving from the UK hopefully the tracks we post will give you an insight into the increasingly rising genre.

Signed onto Black Butter Records, Bristol based My Nu Leng have certainly caught many peoples eye with their new 'Contact' EP. One of our favourites song on the collection is ' Contact.' The track boasts an industrial bite throughout with a hard hitting underground drop, featuring techno clanks, dubstep dub and drum and bass percussion. Check this one out!

Easily one of our favourite songs of the year, ' Not Another Love Song ' released by Manchester based David Wilcox, also known as DVWLX . Full of infectious underground almost tech synths perfectly compliment the uplifting vocal samples before the huge bass heavy drop. This is the newly turned producers first EP and we are seriously looking forward to his forthcoming releases.

It wouldn't be a bass package without the formidable Hannah Wants. As a long time favourite of ours we're always impressed with the very consistent output of quality tracks. This latest offering is in her own words "126bpm gangsta house / old skool switch up stuff sampling Dizzee !" Another one worth checking out is "Signs feat. Janai", or indeed any of her tracks.

Foamo isn't too far removed in the Bass scene from Hannah, indeed her latest mixtape features his tracks. His sound is peak times house with a heavy-sub that rattles the floor through. His latest offering is a four track EP 'Release Me'. Featuring the ethereal vocals of Lotti, this isn't one to miss out on.

Yorkshire producer Chris Greswell never fails to suprise us with his bouncy jackin tracks. However 'Silent Hill' gets the number one spot for his releases in our eyes. This track stood out due to the contrast in sounds. The vocals have a creepy dark feel to them yet it works perfectly with the jumping bouncy jackin sound.

Finally to finish of this Bass heavy package, no one better to end with duo Taiki & Nulight, yet another group that repeatedly release one banger after the next. They have a very unique sounds which is easy to pick up after you check out a couple of there tunes. The one song of theirs to give you an idea of their style instantly is 'Offkey'. Its difficult to categorize there tracks as it has such an upbeat feel, yet it has the underground effect to it. Check out there other songs and keep an eye on these two.
