BASS TERROR


Bass Terror was a collective of German musicians centered around the talents of Alec Empire, who in the early 90s pushed breakbeat and jungle to their extremes resulting in the first breakcore releases. Some mixtapes were released under the Bass Terror name though in 1995. The first cassette in the Midi War tape series "Bass Terror" featured DJ Moonraker and MC Carl Crack. Another, "Bass Terror On Kiss FM: Radio Massive 95" is a DJ mix by (and interview with) Alec Empire with MC'ing again from Carl Crack Read more on Last.fm
Bass Terror was a collective of German musicians centered around the talents of Alec Empire, who in the early 90s pushed breakbeat and jungle to their extremes resulting in the first breakcore releases. Some mixtapes were released under the Bass Terror name though in 1995. The first cassette in the Midi War tape series "Bass Terror" featured DJ Moonraker and MC Carl Crack. Another, "Bass Terror On Kiss FM: Radio Massive 95" is a DJ mix by (and interview with) Alec Empire with MC'ing again from Carl Crack, on the Digital Hardcore edition of Kiss FM's Radio Massive show. In 1992 Alec Empire and Carl Crack started a sound system called Bass Terror.

About a handful of other DJs joined right away. They promoted the first ever purist jungle and breakcore raves outside the United Kingdom. In Berlin squats and run down warehouses a new sound was developed. Journalists couldn't compare it to rave or breakbeat any longer.

A new term was chosen: Breakcore. The sound was harder, faster and way louder than its UK prototype. One other significant difference: Bass Terror was highly charged political with its Anti-Nazi and Anti-Racist slogans and artwork. Empire and Crack saw the extreme right wing having a rising influence on the German techno scene. Bass Terror was formed as a movement of resistance.

One of the first tracks released was called "Hetzjagd auf Nazis!" (German for "Hunt Down And Kill The Nazis"). Frankfurt based techno label Force Inc. Music Works started a sublabel called Riot Beats to give this sound a new push and platform. A year later in '94 Alec Empire would start Digital Hardcore Recordings. Alec's original Bass Terror EP series was only released on vinyl in the years 1992/93. In 2008 he re-released these tracks for the first time in digital remastered format, along with previously unreleased tracks from that era.
