Artful – Could Just Be The Bassline

With the UK’s airwaves and online chatrooms buzzing once again to the sound of UK garage, a new generation is tuning in and discovering this uniquely British sound. As such it’s the perfect time for the return of one of the genre’s true pioneers, Mark Hill, once one half of the Artful Dodger and now producing on his own as Artful.

With four Ivor Novello awards, a number one album, two number one singles and over 10 million records sales worldwide to his name, Mark was one of the key figures of UK garage’s first wave, responsible for popularising the sound back in the late nineties, now he’s back with ‘Could Just Be The Bassline’on his own Workhouse Records.

An infectious slice of 21st century urban soul, ‘Could Just Be The Bassline’co-written by Atlantic Records’ rising star Ed Sheeran, has already been championed by the likes of Radio 1’s MistaJam and1Xtra’s DJ Cameo. A genuine summer anthem in waiting, the single captures the excitement and energy of those original 2 Step classics, whilst still sounding utterly modern and of the now.

Having introduced the world to the likes of Craig David and Corinne Bailey-Rae, Mark has a knack for working with and helping to break future stars, providing them with the perfect backdrop to showcase their vocal talents. ‘Could Just Be The Bassline’ is no exception and marks a startling debut for Kal Lavelle, introduced to Mark by Ed Sheeran with whom she is currently touring.

With Mark’s own club, 4/4 and downtempo remixes showing off the songs myriad strengths, and a remix from Garage legends the Dreem Team completing the package, “Could Just Be The Bassline” heralds the welcome and triumphant return of one of the UK’s most respected producers.
