The song starts with a twitchy horn and some mellow basses as Yuneer flows effortlessly over the vibrations with his vocals.

AMERIA – Indestructible [Free Download}

It’s 2016 and the females are killing the game. From Mija to Alison Wonderland to Ducky, gender means nothing in music and Ameria is soon to join in ranks. Her vocal trap anthem “Indestructible” is a blissful montage of sound and bass. The tune starts with a rush of emotion as arpeggiated vocal chops and a piano melody intrigue us. A simple bassline and beating drum pattern supporting Ameria’s raw vocals push the tune along. We follow her down the rabbit hole to the drop where we’re met with an interesting collision of sound and a pop-rock-like drum beat. Between more »

SwaggleRock x Holly – Lemme In [Premiere]

Bass music is the epitome of my soul. From the anquish of erratic frequencies to deep sub vibes of heavy 808s, I thrive on original and creative tracks. We recently got our hands on a banger of a hybrid tune, coming from SwaggleRock and Holly, two insanely talented bass producers. Both of these artists are highly skilled in an array of musical genres and having them collab on a tune is down right insanity. Their newest work of art, “Lemme In”, is a hybrid-bass, demonized ride through the darkness of sound. Starting off with a foreboding beat and paired with more »

Christian Colon aka EXSSV is the realest bass star coming out of New York. From his debut banger “Starstruck” to today’s premiere remix, the level of hype around EXSSV is not nearly enough.

Lafa Taylor and Aabo Drop “Turn My Music Up”

We love coming across booty shaking tracks just as much as heavy dubstep or melodic future bass. Lafa Taylor teamed up with bay-area native Aabo to put out a funk machine tune that will have your hips swaying to the beat entitled “Turn My Music Up”. This song is their debut piece off their collaborative project, FEEL, which was accompanied with a hilarious music video. “Turn My Music Up” is a groovy and quirky ride through the murky bass of deep house and stylistic lyrics of hip hop.
