After the ground-breaking success of High Chai Recordings’ “Nu asian soundZ”, dimmSummer envisioned the next album showcasing more diverse sounds of an ever-evolving bass music scene. Bringing together established heavy-weights and rising stars, “SUBcontinentalBASS” delivers exclusive global bass winners ranging from reggae, breaks, dubstep, tropical bass and drumstep.

dimmSummer explains, “I wanted to steer this mothership full-throttle ahead with like-minded producers and bass-Jedis on board. The comp had to find that perfect balance between grit and melody, whether in my earbuds or dropped in a set. Producers from around the planet brought their signature sound, complimenting each other as a whole, while pushing bass music boundaries forward.”


FACT: Between the late Bronze & Iron Ages (1500-1000 BCE) ancient Sanskrit texts “not of human agency” detailed great aerial battles between the Gods using other-worldly vehicles and weapons on the sub-continent of India. These aerial ships were called Vimanas.

VIMANA: “…a chariot of the gods, any mythical self-moving aerial car (sometimes serving as a seat or throne, sometimes self-moving & carrying its occupant through the air; other descriptions make the Vimana more like a house or palace, & one kind is said to be seven stories high.”


Following in the footsteps of High Chai’s signature ground-breaking compilations over the years, dimmSummer recruits ace talent from across the globe to craft exclusive material for this new offering covering dubstep, tropical, drumstep, & reggae.

Included are bass music superstars that High Chai first broke onto the Beatport charts: FS (#4 Dec. 2010), B.R.E.E.D, Piyush Bhatnagar, Radiohiro, Nuphlo & Goonda, along with a fresh crop of upcoming talent sure to make bassbins rumble.
