Eyesome Collective started out with releasing free/pay-what-you-want material on Bandcamp around 2015 by the likes of Krimma, Rygby, High Dude, Sub0xyde alongside coverart derived with permission from Beeple – king of digital (blockchain/crypto) design – already existing work.
During its first 3 years, Eyesome focused on the heavier side of dubstep – a genre which nowadays is often referred to as ‘Riddim’ or ‘Tear Out dubstep’ and put out 10 releases which more or less collides with this subgenre.
It was only around 2019 that we decided to change the course of our Eyesome ship and focus on a much broader side of bass music and support crossgenre collabs between artists from around the world.
In 2020, the new Eyesome resurrected and brought out it’s first project: a joint EP between Canadian producer Abstrakt Sonance and German beatmaker Ziplokk. The music was made available both on cassette tape and digitally.
After EYEDK7001, we decided that we needed a designer who has more knowledge and feeling with bass music. We brought Maxime Klave on board, who has been designing the French webzine Azalea for several years and a true basshead at heart. We consider Maxime’s style unique, coherant and always open for ideas in discussion with the artists who made the music.
At the end of 2020, Eyesome puts out his first fully digital EP alongside A3 posters courtesy of Hungarian producer Malz and a stunning remix by French global bass DJ & Producer La Dame FKA DJ carie.
2021 was Eyesome’s inaugural year with 6 (mostly) multitempo releases by the likes of Kontent, Imanzi, Duckem, Qant, Yaxx, Bisweed, Y.L.S. and q100 – spanning from downtempo/garage to classic deep dubstep/leftfield bass, halftime / breaks and jungle + drum n bass.
2022 started off with a solo EP from Ziplokk ft. 11th hour remix of Frostbite. Followed shortly by Grawinkel and Matthias Strobel’s EP fusing bass and guitar staying around that 140 bpm mark. Freud on the lofi-ish remix!
In 2023, the first compilation on the label featuring 7 tracks crafted by musicians who spearhead dance culture within their communities both locally and globally like Kavel (Egregore France), ZERO (Amen Lisbon) and Cardiome (Konfronted Ghent) to name some came out. Followed by Y.L.S. & Xtanki’s remix EP of their powerful 140 roller “Nothing” and wrapped up by Freud’s solo EP alongside remixes by Grawinkel and the Lithuanian jungle/breaks producer gu-100.
