AC Slater Releases New EP, ‘I Wanna Show You,’ Out Today Via Night Bass
Kicking off 2018 with a full roster of releases from some of the most progressive artists in the bass house movement including Wax Motif, Jack Beats, Jay Robinson, and more, LA-based label Night Bass is now throwing it back to the artist that made it all happen- label head AC Slater.
Returning with his first release since his critically acclaimed 2017 debut artist album, Outsiders, AC Slater is now unveiling a new three-track EP titled ‘I Wanna Show You.‘ A precursor to his highly anticipated Coachella 2018 performance, AC Slater gives fans a teaser of whats to come in the evolution of his coveted trademark sound. Kicking off with “Amen Tribe,” Slater delves into new tribal house territory and infuses the production with a myriad of sonic elements from the genre, clearly defining his versatility as a producer. Next up, “Can’t Come Down” (feat. Young Lyxx) completely switches directions with a club suited cut that straddles a fine line between G-House and bass music. Finally, “I Wanna Show You” returns to familiar territory for AC Slater with a classic cut of bass house that is enlivened with a melting pot of primely placed piano melodies and drum machine break downs.
Up next for Slater, he’ll be gearing up for a stacked Coachella doubleheader that also includes the Night Bass Coachella Pool Party going down April 13th in Palm Springs.
