Bass Physics – FLY AWAY feat. CASS
Bass music has the power to transport listeners to other worlds, and this is especially true of the sounds from Denver-based producer/multi-instrumentalist Bass Physics. Having gained a fervent audience who are enamored by his sparkly, hard-hitting bass aesthetics and live set – a vibrant performance style that sees him oscillate between electronic hardware, piano, and guitar – Bass Physics has cultivated a distinct sonic and visual language that gives fans a reprieve from their earthly struggle.
Now, fans get their first taste of Lost In Space with melodic bass banger “FLY AWAY,” the LP’s lead single. A collaboration with vocalist CASS, “FLY AWAY” blends heart-thumping bass, angelic vocals, and intricate production flourishes all wrapped in a lush, extraterrestrial presentation.

Motorcycles – As The Rush Comes (Tara Brooks Remix)
Genre-blending producer/DJ Tara Brooks is a seasoned dance music artist and historian. Born and raised in Los Angeles, her upbringing in the Southern California rave scene exposed her to sounds from across the country, as well as to legends such as Doc Martin, DJ Dan, and Sasha & John Digweed – a diverse education that’s helped her form a genreless sound and playing style that takes from acid house, electronica, breakbeats, indie, dark disco, and more.
Tara Brooks is digging into the past again with a remix of Motorcycle’s legendary trance track “As The Rush Comes.” In honor of the song’s 20th anniversary, Brooks felt inspired to remix “As The Rush Comes” and reached out to Dave Dresden (who formed Motorcycle with his duo Gabriel & Dresden and vocalist JES) for the stems, to which he happily obliged. The result of this exchange is a modern take on a vintage dance track, a remix that introduces new context to a song while retaining its vibrant creative spirit.
