Bounce n Shake With Deekline and Ed Solo


10 Jan 2012



Ed Solo & Deekline


Booty bass duo Deekline & Ed Solo recently released Gimme, the first single from their forthcoming album Bounce n Shake on Rat Records. We spoke to Deekline to find out more...

Tell us more about the album you're releasing this year, what can we expect?
Bounce n Shake will be very bass eclectic, a whole lot of this and a whole lot of that. A mixture of what we feel. Booty, jungle, soul, breaks, dubstep, drumstep, the list goes on!

Did you set out with a specific vision of what you wanted to do with the album?
Yes, we wanted to write a rocking electronic album that tells a bit of a story from start to finish.

How does working on albums compare with singles?
They take a bit more organisation as you have to work well ahead of time and make sure your sounds are on point and don't sound dated by the time of release.

Can we expect anything different on it?
Yes, I think we got some interesting mixes of fresh talent and solid, heavyweight dancefloor mixes of all the tunes.

Who have you collaborated with on it?
Million Dan, Gloria, Darrison, Sporty O, Yo Majesty, Afrowhitey. Every one is very professional and a pleasure to work with.

What can you tell us about Gimme, the first single taken from it?
It was a bit of fun really, lots of booty bass and lots or er, booty! It happened to be the first single ready to go so we went with it.

What else have you been working on recently?
New tunes with Afrowhitey.

What else can we expect on your Rat label in 2012?
Got loads of new material. New releases with UK artists like MC Sparks, Hyperactive, MC RB, Hardy Hard, Million Dan, remixes from Columbo plus loads of exciting projects on the burner!

Got any new year's resolutions you can tell us about?
Uhh, I got alcohol poisoning in Hungary just before New Year's Eve so promised myself I would calm down on the booze and run a half marathon. Ed's is to stop smoking so much.

Anything else you want to tell us about?
The second single from the album is called Paella and features the vocal talent of Christina Nicole plus a variety of remixes from the likes of Dodge & Fuski and Stripper. Our new web site is also quite dope:
