On a Friday in June
The Force, it is strong in this one. It was a little over a month ago when we first wrote about this talented new producer. Determined to show us he’s the furthest thing from a one trick pony, Julio Bashmore is back with some seriously jaw dropping heat. Can we say best new producer of 09? These tunes are just dripping with originality and style.
Kicking things off with Um Bongo’s Revenge. Bashmore’s revised version of the original we posted last month. Service Pack 2 leans heavy on a moody tip yet stops short of Elm Street with some infectious 90’s era Chicago House melodies. This one, is a stone cold killer.

I’m not even going to try and classify this next one. Bashmore’s Bad Apple occupies an untapped space somewhere between 2Step, Luciano-like house and Funky with an end result that couldn’t be more kickin’. Sweeping pad’s, melodic throbbing subs and world vocals here lay a bridge between the trends of today and the foundations of yesteryear.
Jack got Macked, what a gem my oh my. Bashmore breaks out the ChiTown influence again with some Jackin Drums and Old School Piano patterns only to lead the a vocal that can ONLY incite smiles and sing-a-longs around the world. Once you think you have this one pegged as just another classic house throwback, Bashmore flips the script with some distinct UK flavor. This, is FRESH.
