NEW SO SUS TRACK

Image
"CLUTCH" - SO SUSWritten by: roshux From the smooth yet heavy hitting percussion to the clean and precise vocal chops, So Sus' new song "Clutch" is definitely a future track that brings all the best elements of the genre together. Part of the CrystalsVolume 3 compilation, this track stands out tall and proud with amazing production and sound design put into every second of it. So Sus starts it all off with a lead up sounding almost ethereal, then slams into your ears with a hard bass line and perfect clap to match. It's a wonderful mix of heavy and soothing sounds, which can be very tough to accomplish, but So Sus nails it with this one.

NEW SKINTREST TRACK

Image
"SOMETHING"UK producer, Skintrest, is out again and this time we are treated to a wicked and mind-bending track drilling his vision on an experimental trap piece. Piano instrumentals creeping in the midst of the track, this new release gives us something unexpectedly rich and fueled with bouldering bass. The smoldering eeriness you hear from Skintrest presents a dark mood of ghoul-y sounds making you wish the month of dead leaves were tomorrow. Below share and listen to Skintrest's "Something"!

NEW GANGUS TRACK

Image
"HEAVY ROTATION" Full of dub, bass, and grime vocals, Denver's Gangus fires up a heavy release that spins heads and breaks necks. A tasty intro of winding pitches and hi-hats, this dirty dubstep track contains cycling rumbles of synths and, of what sounds like, trumpets jumping and tossing back n forth in one big orchestra of reckless noise. Released earlier this month, this rare gem popped up on the MOA SoundCloud stream surprising my ears with the erratic griminess the 2 and a half minute track holds. Below share and listen to Gangus's "Heavy Rotation"!

NEW DZZ X HALPE COLLAB

Image
"GHOST'S LULLABY" - DZZ & HALPE A peculiar production recently rested in SoundCloud's domain, and it flashes with an unexpected collaboration from two outstanding artists. Released on Record Record's Filet Mignon 5, Virginia producer DZZ and Argentinian producer Halpe deliver an obscure track titled, "Ghost's Lullaby." With playful uses of stretched fizzy synths, heavy spurts of bass, and miscellaneous drum work, the collab extenuates depth and spontaneous production in only a matter of two minutes. The slight use of melodic breathy vocals, the collab finishes in an airy abrupt halt leaving us with a paranormal dedication that directs your focus on what two talented forces can achieve.
