I’m going to and warn you now; King’s Head Records’ newest offering is not for the faint of heart. Miami-based producers Ben Wash and Treznik are bringing us a brand new project that tests the limits of drum and bass, electro, and trap with their new EP, Yuppie. The duo takes listeners on a journey of experimental drum variations, glitches, and mind-bending bass sound design that will leave you in a beautiful mess. Honestly it’s hard to describe the sounds they use and do these artists any justice. All I can say is that everything is just in sync. All of the instruments have their place and flow with each other in a very intriguing way. This daring, original work will be available for everyone on March 17th, but is already available for preorder on iTunes here.
For now we’ll explore “Bread for The Poor,” which we are exclusively releasing with a free download for our fans :). This Drum and Bass delicacy is a true dialog of low-end frequencies. A living bass line tells a story that syncs with the drums on a whole new level and jumps from heavy growls to filtered screams that punch along with the kick and precise hi hat programming. Industrial percussion appears at just the right time to add a little zest to this perplexing beat, and the duo is able to jump between motifs without using a lot of fx risers. All while still being able to explore wherever the mind has possibly taken them without losing the pace of the track. You can follow Ben Wash and Treznik individually on Soundcloud for more destructive sounds, and be sure to buy their new EP this Tuesday!
