Helsinki’s Teeth (aka Matti Pentikäinen) and Desto, who have both released on labels like Ramp and Noppa, have teamed up to launch a new label.

Both artists have revealed details of Signal Life on various social media platforms. A single will be released, featuring Teeth and Desto’s own tracks. In their own words, Signal Life is “a label dedicated to upfront bass excursions… [which] will focus on releasing a wide spectrum of music with the common denominator in the low end: raw, stripped down rhythms laden with bass.”

Signal Life 001’s A-side Vibrate is delivered by Teeth – a slice of high-powered, growling bass with ecstatic 808 drum beats that differs to last year’s 502-released seductive, sparse stand-out track Shawty. On the flip, Desto provides Remember, a dark, neatly programmed slab of percussion. Release date of ‘Vibrate / Remember’ has not been provided, more details to follow.
