Welcome once again to Bass Report! If you’re searching for that perfect track to blow out your new sub in style… you came to the right place.
I originally had The Killabits pegged for this week’s top spot with their latest remix… but waking up to that new Zeds Dead EP yesterday left me with a tough call on my hands. I absolutely love the work coming from both pairs of producers, but Zeds Dead edged them out with ‘Cowboy’ this time around.
It kicks off with hip-hop vocals alongside western/rock guitar, and is then doused in a signature grinding bass line that lets you know it’s time to get down. Sometimes I question Omar Linx‘s role with the two, not because he isn’t talented, but simply because they’ve already done so much together. I wouldn’t mind seeing some varying collab work in the future, but Linx really lets loose some emotion on this one, and the combined influences of the three make this track a hit.
Already releasing three quality originals this summer, Adventure Club is now quite a reputable name in the Dubstep game, and this will mark their third consecutive appearance on Bass Report. This week however, it’s fellow Canadians The Killabits on remix duties, claiming the #2 spot with a deadly version of Adventure Club’s recent single ‘Wait’. Having spent much of my night life in Toronto, I’ve caught The Killabits on a number of occasions and have always been impressed with their arsenal of heavy hitters. Add one more to the list!
Before I leave you to it, I want to give a quick mention to Meta at #5. It’s always exciting to hear new artists with fresh sounds, and after getting a peek of ‘Phoenix Down’, I am eagerly awaiting the release of their debut EP ‘The Alpha’, July 30th. Definitely an artist worth following in the future, I think you’ll agree.
That’s all for now! If you have any feedback on the article so far, feel free to send it my way. I always appreciate compliments or criticism… don’t hold back!
