Bassheads

This Birkenhead, Merseyside, England-based duo comprised Desa and Nick Murphy and originally found prominence in 1991 using the release of ‘Is There Anybody ON THE MARKET?’ Although they reached the united kingdom Top 10, they discovered themselves getting sued by Afrika Bambaataa, the Osmonds, Green Floyd and also Talking Minds’ reps for the samples that they had employed. Following singles ‘Back again To The Aged College’ and ‘Who COULD MAKE You Feel Great’ refused to bargain on the pulsating home/sample work. Nevertheless, by enough time of the debut long-player in 1993, the Bassheads got begun to accept the ambient home movement spearheaded with the Orb and Aphex Twin. At the primary of the record was a 24-minute monitor, ‘C.O.D.E.’, which owed a debts to Brian Eno and Speaking Heads. (NB: Never to be baffled with the 90s US rap staff Bass Minds.)
