Submerse (aka Fourty Four), over the last couple of months has pricked my ears. I would now place him right up at the front of the big bass music wave, creating fresh riddims on the plenty. He fits perfectly under the 'Future Garage' stamp - some are debating whether this is actually a genre, or just a movement. Who knows!
His productions are doused in smooth, warm sub bass which accompanies female vocal snippets and bouncy drum patterns. Many have an old-skool vibe with a nu-skool twist and the majority have switch ups every 16 or so to keep things interesting. Here's a little couple of samples:
Hold It Down - Submerse
2nite (2010 Mix) - Submerse
Submerse has releases on Whistla's L2S Recordings and his own Night Audio. Forthcomings are lined up for both and a couple of other labels - keep up to date with him on Soundcloud. He recently completed an American/Canadian tour and has gigs booked in London/Poland/Ireland/Amsterdam.
Here's a few treats to take away with you. 'Aquatic Ambiance' took a few listens to notice the beauty inside but is now firmly fixed in my chilled playlist. Simple but seriously effective. About half way through, a dreamy synth comes in which gets you lost in the ambient melody and humming sub line. 'Lost U' is a deep hybrid sound and 'Click' is straight back on the garage vibe, pretty much sums up what this man is all about. Make sure you get 'Click' on the download, cos it's not available anywhere else!

If three tracks wasn't enough, he's also put together a 20 minute minimix for your aural pleasure.
