Jellybass is the name given to a genre of music primarily focused around a modulated synthesised bassline. Influences include dub, dubstep, reggae, downtempo and jazz, funk, Jellybass was first pioneered (and aptly named) by two UK artists; DJ Chix and TnG. The genre 'Jellybass' is inspired by the likes of Mr Scruff, Mr Oizo, Danny Breaks, Tipper, Treva Whateva and Jon Kennedy.
Prior to any releases, Jellybass found themselves the hot topic of most music forums including outofthevoid.co.uk, nuskoolbreaks.co.uk and the Computer Music forums. The first Jellybass single, 'Loop da Loop' was released on Vinyl by a UK independent record label 'Random Audio Records' and is still available from Chemical Records.
The first album, entitled 'Jellybass' was released by LoHz records as an online mp3 and wav album only, sold through iTunes, Clickgroove, Tunetribe, and Trackitdown. The artist Jellybass also produced a free half hour mix available for download from their website, which achieved over 2000 downloads in the first 3 months.
Following the success of the album, LoHz records released the Jellybass 'Transatlantic' single on 12" vinyl and mp3, featuring Abdominal on vocals, an MC from Canada who then joined them for a UK Tour in May 2008. Jellybass are now working on their second album.
