The 'Bass Go Boom' On Joshwa’s Highly Anticipated ID

“BOOM. The ID you’ve all been waiting on.” That might be the most accurate statement we’ve heard all week, and it comes straight from up-and-coming DJ/producer, Joshwa on his new track, “Bass Go Boom.”
Based in London, Joshwa first stepped onto the scene in 2016. His library and reach have grown with each passing year while fine-tuning his sound with the label Glasgow Underground. Persistence pays off, and in 2021 Joshwa started cracking the code. Beginning with “My Humps,” the Beatport number one that found a home with Lee Foss’ acclaimed Repopulate Mars. Next, he linked with fellow Londoner, Sammy Porter, on the slinky banger, “Eastern Dub,” which was right as rain for FISHER’s Catch & Release records. Joshwa closed out 2022 strong with a string of releases on heavy-hitting outlets Black Book Records, Insomniac, and Ultra.
Joshwa seems primed to continue his breakout in 2023 with the release of his highly coveted ID, “Bass Go Boom.” While only just now seeing official release, the tune has experienced widespread support from dance music movers and shakers like John Summit, FISHER, Danny Howard, Jamie Jones, Solardo, and more. Playing it out in your set is one thing, but signing it is another, and that’s exactly what Jamie Jones and Lee Foss did by nabbing it for Hot Creations.
"Anyone that knows me or has heard a set recently knows this is a staple and marks the next stage of evolution of my sound,” Joshwa shared. “Ecstatic for it be dropping on Jamie’s Hot Creations.”
Hot Creations landed a sizzler with “Bass Go Boom.” This is a bone-rattling, foot-stomping tech house at its finest. The undulating low end is fit for peak UK Bass, but toss in a skittering kit and the vocal punch, and you have a track that will tear up any club. No wonder Summit, Fish, and Jones have rinsed this one out.
