Inside Scoop w. MarshedBass

Residing in New Jersey, ‘omnitempo’ music producer Jake Marsh aka MarshedBass 'brings the background into the fold with a ferocious Background Noise (BGN) guestmix.

Beginning with an ominous ambiance, the listener prepares a menacing joy ride
through thick fluttering basslines and volatile soundscapes. MarshedBass takes low end lovers on a journey through omnitempo sounds, accompanied by ricocheting bass.

In an exclusive BGN Q&A, we take a look inside the ethereal, chaotic project that is MarshedBass.
[Some interview responses are condensed for clarity.]



How did early life experiences shape the producer you are today? Elaborate about the role of music in your personal background.

I’ve always had a strong connection with music growing up and I was an active listener to all types of genres, using music to deal with emotion, get through tough times, and use it to celebrate the good. About 5 years in, from knowing very little to all that I know now, I can say I’ve made some good choices through this journey into sound.

Who are some artists (both electronic and beyond the electronic space) that influence your work? Why?

Mersiv, ill.Gates, Mr. Bill, Truth, Tool, VCTRE, Tipper, Gramatik, Sub Focus, EPROM, G Jones, and Alix Perez are just a few of many artists and musicians who influence and shape the MarshedBass project.

Sol Fest Music and Arts Festival : An Inaugural Celebration of Life

An Inaugural Celebration of Life: Sol Fest announces lineup and shares insights to event inspiration.

Festivals are far more than places to party and escape — they can comprise entire communal worlds in which participants are united by shared values and connections. Many events invite folks to create and express, to dream and transform; some encourage attendees to navigate grief and cherish memories, to move through mourning and find solace in change. The inaugural Sol Fest, a three-day music & art experience slated for May 6-8, 2022, centers its approach around this latter combination of themes in celebration of the life and legacy of Quentin Sol (Strandhagen) Rupp.

As a first-year event, Sol Fest is already looking bright with a promising lineup of more than 60 musicians across multiple electronic mediums. Headliners range from the funk-infused Manic Focus and the eclectically-glitchy Mr. Bill to the bass-heavy Minnesota and two unique sets by the beloved Yheti (with his double-slot hinting that one of Yheti’s highly-acclaimed sunrise sets may be in store…).

Perhaps the most signature element of Sol Fest will be its series of memorial installations. A commemorative slideshow will recognize late family and friends. A ‘pass the goods’ trading post will serve as an ode to Stewart Beck, founder of Pass the Good Entertainment. An event will occur by the springs for folks to reflect on the life and impact of CharlestheFirst.

Throughout the weekend, attendees will be invited to mourn, reflect, venerate, and remember loved ones by writing notes attached to a wooden effigy.

“We all deal with death and grief at some point in our lives and we wanted to create a festival that honors those who have passed onward – while celebrating life through friends and music. Our art installations will aim at memorializing lost loved ones, including a special effigy burn that signifies the letting go of grief,” explains Justin. “We hope attendees gain a new appreciation and excitement for life after Sol Fest.”

Inside Scoop w/ ENIGMA DUBZ

Prominent producer ENiGMA Dubz reveals meaningful memories, and provides insight into recent album and guest mix.

“ENiGMA Dubz is my way of expressing myself to the core, every emotion and feeling through the various styles I cover. When I hear a sick sound come from a virtual instrument or sample, if it gets under my skin, I’m locked in – and my mood then determines the direction in which my track will flow,” says James. “From dubstep and garage to downtempo and DnB, as long as the bottom end is warm and the vibe infects me, I’m all in.”

Outside of music, ENiGMA Dubz has a track record of dedicated commitment to impactful causes and community care. Alongside his wife and friends, he spent three years organizing a weekly soup and sandwich pop-up for people experiencing houselessness in the urban center of Birmingham. He believes mutual aid is one of many keys to building the better worlds we all deserve.

“This initiative was very important – it took just a small amount of time and effort to make a big difference,” says ENiGMA Dubz.

Bringing the background into the fold.

When we think about some of our favorite musicians and how they came to develop their unique structure of sound, often they’ll speak of the inspiration that led them to structuring their artistic identity. To many, dubstep needs no introduction. But for those who aren’t familiar with the foundations of this constantly evolving style of music; it is a genre that has grasped roots from all over the world.

For Ego Death, it has been his earnest exploration through the makeup of cultural appreciation that has helped form the cognizance behind the assemblage of his instrumental production and sound design. His veneration and devotion for this genre, evidenced by his semantic, yet harmonic priming, can be seen through this showcase of the intrinsic nature of dubstep.

ENIGMA DUBZ - BGN Guest Mix 011 ft.

[Stream - https://linktr.ee/backgroundnoiseagency]



James Vine, aka ENiGMA Dubz, has been the worst kept secret in the global bass music scene for more than a decade.

From dubstep to future garage, grime to liquid drum & bass - the dexterous DJ and producer is equally adept at unleashing the weightiest bass-heavy drops as crafting expansive cinematic electronic soundscapes.

This hour-long 140bpm adventure grounds itself in grotesquely low-end sonic layers, echoing the distant sounds of industrial warehouse parties while seamlessly moving through multiple new-school genres.

Background Noise has the pleasure of hosting this don - live and direct - alongside Chief Kaya on the Grand Ancestor Sound System in Baltimore, MD, on Saturday, March 12. This bass-heavy east-coast function is slated to be a slapper on the 2022 books.

Our behind the scenes Inside Scoop will go live Sunday, March 13th.

Tune in for a chance to witness greatness.
