We all know that electronic music can be pretty strange to begin with, but here are a few REALLY dark dnb tracks that are so weird that you’ll end up loving them (well, I do).
1). Billain’s “Autonomous.” Okay, so this one is really hard to describe, but I know a few things are for sure: this is drum & bass, it’s really hardcore and dark, and there’s so much going on at once that you’re probably going to have to listen to it a few times to understand what is going on. Listen to this one with your headphones, the bass is killer. (This is from his new EP, “Colossus“).
2). Bredren’s “Carnage” is a track with significantly more of a consistent flow. This track that’s out now on Demand Records is possibly darker than the first, bass-heavy, and a lot slower-paced. Once again, headphones recommended, because the bass is awesome. Check out his other tracks on this new release here.
3). Friction’s track “Battle Scars,” featuring Fourward and Jakes takes us on a different route. This track is super upbeat and has some heavy bass movement while the rapping done over the entire thing creates the perfect amount of eery that we love in our dark dnb. Good rap + good bass = better music. Along with this one, Friction has released another track titled “Scatter.”
4). Finally is Enei’s “Get Low.” Unlike the other tracks here, “Get Low” may be the most unique of them all. On his new EP, “Goliath,” released through Critical Music, this track is really weird. But really, in the best of ways. It sort of switches from a dnb drum beat to the heavy bass vibes of a modern hip hop or trap tune. Slower-paced and bass heavy, this Russian DJ/producer has done pretty damn good with this one.
Listen and embrace the strangeness. Enjoy.
