Here’s a group of three great new base heavy tracks for you to get your weekend started with. There’s a little bit for everyone in this week’s post; trap, drum and base, and dubstep as well!
Lookas is one of trap music’s most exciting and enticing up and coming artist. Breaking into the EDM world about two years ago with the remix he did for Borgeous and DVBBS’s bigroom house anthem “Tsunami”, the Miami native has continued to evolve and transform his sound into what he has now; a uniquely distinguishable style of trap in a world where most trap seems to sound exactly the same. Another song of his that really blew me away was his remix of the classic rock hit “Low Rider” by War. Now Lookas is back again with a new original festival trap anthem worth more than a few listens. The song is fittingly titled “Voyager”, as the intro features a sample of what sounds like radio conversations between an astronaut and ground control. The simple church bells in the beginning give the song a chilling anticipation leading into the first drop. The drop features an extremely heavy 808 baseline with a lead synth melody that sounds like a blasting siren. The second half of the first drop has some serious Jersey club influences that speed the song up a bit, but its brought back to the normal trap rhythm for the third and final drop. After this release as well as a few of his recent original releases, I’m really hoping that Lookas will be putting together a full EP or even an album soon.
Kill the Noise has been throwing out one tasty track after another for more than a decade now, so this new remix of his being as good as it is is really no surprise. Jake Stanczak, stage name Kill the Noise, has taken GTA’s original track titled “Parental Advisory” and twisted it up into a drum and base slasher that’s sure to have its listeners running in place. The song begins with an ominous sounding voice warning the listeners that, “Due to some violent content, parental discretion is advised”, and “violent” is the perfect word to describe this song. In the intro, the shivering sound of a violin builds up to a crescendo of full force until it drops into a high intensity rhythm that, if listened to too loudly, will very likely blow your speakers out. I really like how in the second drop of the song he slows it down to a trap like speed, but then quickly brings it back up to the drum and base pace of the original drop. We’re still waiting on news about Stanczak’s next upcoming album.
Little known DJ and producer Charlie Zane has gone and remixed an already ridiculously filthy track, somehow turning it into an even dirtier dubstep monster. Charlie Zane is a Canadian dubstep producer who also released his remix Dr. Ozi and Colours’s original track “Stay With Me” just six days ago. I’m honestly bewildered at house low-key this artist is, because this remix is easily one of the best songs I’ve heard in quite a long time. The original track came off of Eptic’s most recent EP, “Immortal” and was one of the slimiest songs on it. But Zane came in and completely blew it up into an even filthier smash hit. The lead synth in the drop makes me think of some sort of robotic dog barking at the top of its lungs. If this remix is any indicator of Charlie Zane’s skill set, you can definitely be expecting a lot more to come from him in the future.
