Artist KaTT Takes Narrative Approach To Music In ‘The Opus Collection’

After hearing a playlist entitled ‘Opus Ira‘ by Toronto producer KaTT, there was no doubt in my mind that he has the potential to be a real force in the current Trap scene and Bass scene in general. A holistically structured body of works, this project delivers not only on each individual song but also as a collective composition, like chapters of a book. And they literally flow into each other. The ending of each song serves as the beginning of the next, emphasizing the connected nature of the story. The theme is very clear: “Ira”, meaning wrath. ‘Opus Ira’ take more »

Odesza Returns With TWO New Tracks, ‘Line of Sight’ and ‘Late Night’

I Love Future Bass. But man, we’ve gotta admit that since the success of The Chainsmokers smash hit, ‘Closer‘, fans of Future Bass have been fed a stream of generic tracks in an attempt to copy that success and hop in on the trend. With exceptions every now and again, it seemed Future Bass had become the new cash crop of the industry. The next version of EDM POP, the successor of Future House and Big Room House/Melbourne Bounce before it. It seemed to have become a genre prone to formulaic entries rather than the avant-garde genre it began as. more »

Chuck Sutton Chops Together New Track ‘Me, Not You.’

Chuck Sutton landed himself on many people’s radar after the release of his debut EP Tripolar. With 3 Nest HQ premiere’s under his belt, this up-and-comer has made waves with his distinct choppy style of Future Bass/Trap mixed with 8-bit synths. His most recent track, ‘me, not you.‘ is a powerful reinforcement of the Sutton brand.

Chuck’s command over the vocals as an instrument allow them to be the main instrument of the song. Meanwhile, the synths take a more »

HEKLER and Lemay Bend Minds With Track ‘Crooked’

If you are familiar with the level of sound design offered by either HEKLER or Lemay, then you know that separately they have the power to make you fell like you’ve lost your mind with their beautifully chaotic drops. These talents come together on their new track ‘Crooked‘ which gives us some of the cleanest chaos we’ve seen out of either artist. The song is kicked off with the rich and dark atmosphere we’ve come to expect out of a HEKLER song. The cinematic drums of the intro quickly transition into a high impact buildup, and thus the carnage begins.

Awoltalk Delivers Golden Remix of “Gold” by Max Styler

Like many great Future Bass songs, Gold by Max Styler blurs the line between Future and Trap. With help from producer Devault, the reminiscence of the 808 bass and drum patterns add a hardness to the euphoric theme provided by vocals from Luciana. It gives a powerful Future Bass experience while also whetting one’s appetite for Trap. As if to answer this call, Awoltalk delivers the full heavy Trap rendition of this work with his new remix. This track makes it known from the start that this is a change of tone from the original. You are well prepared when the more »

Their Cartel EP comes after the release of two blazing hot singles “Jefe” and “Alamo”, which are the featured singles from this 5 track record. Earlier this year the duo gave fans a bit of jolt when they blacked out of social media for about 10 days and lead us to believe that the had thrown in the towel. This brief radio silence turned out to be a very minimal rebrand that has had Boombox Cartel fans hungry for more uniquely heavy bass from this dynamic duo. more »

Nerdology – Pretty Fly For A White Samurai (TSAU004)

Imagine for a moment if you will, that Dutch violinist and conductor Andre Rieu was a selectable character in Mortal Kombat. Seems a bit far fetched but Donald Trump is now President of the United States and Pitbull is still making sales, so anything is possible. Now, if Andre Rieu were to go toe to toe with robot cyborg Cyax, you could probably drop “Pretty Fly For A White Samurai” by Nerdology as the theme song and be pretty confident that Shang Tsung would let you keep your spine based on track selection alone. It’s a fitting song for a more »

NuKid Remixes Kai Wachi Into A Bassline Bomb

What do you get when you add the insane sound design of veteran trap producer Kai Wachi and the raw, unadulterated swagger of G-house up-and-comer Nukid? Fire emojis. Lots of them. A glitchy arp and foreboding chords stay true to the dark nature of the original, creating tension befitting the songs ominous title. Then, in classic NuKid style, a fat bassline comes crashing in to move your body from head to toe, interspersed with some of the dirtiest wubs and womps I’ve heard in a while.
