The new Rick Owens Men’s RTW collection made a lot of noise in Paris this week for it’s full frontal fashion. And the soundtrack was just as ballsy, courtesy of none other than FG’s own Bames, who were enlisted by Rick to create custom extended mixes of their DRTY BWTY tracks “Sippin” and “Posted” for the catwalk. Check it out on Bames’ Soundcloud, grab DRTY BWTY on iTunes, and stay tuned for their new EP coming this Spring on Fool’s Gold!
The Texan bass duo Bames just released their genre bending edit of The Weeknd for free download. It is yet another production that proves that these guys know how to twist our minds into a whole new level. Grab their debut DRTY BWTY EP now and continue dive deeper into the bass.
One of the most unique records we dropped all year was the unclassifiable DRTY BWTY EP by Bames. Banging yet dreamy, it’s a record that’s as tripped out as it is trapped out, and we’re very excited to hear what these Texas boys come up with for their next release. For now, we’ll make do with some new remixes, like the free “Thanky.Zip” odds n ends download over on Soundcloud, and an official remix for Creep’s “Vertigo,” out now on Beatport.
Our friends at Potato just premiered the new video for Bames “DRTY BWTY” (off their bass-tastic Fool’s Gold EP of the same name, out now on iTunes, Beatport and alladat). The combination of Bames’ wavy instrumental and director Josh Wehle’s bodybuilder footage is hypnotic to say the least… get pumped. Read More
