Throughout 2015, melody-oriented tracks have really risen immensely in popularity. In particular future bass scene, considered by many a needed breathe of fresh air to electronic music, has grown vastly. While songs within the genre can vary greatly, with so many of the artists incorporating unique elements to really establish a signature sound, one thing that these songs have in common is the use of melodies and a focus on bass. Without a doubt, 2016 will see future bass continue to grow further, and I look forward to introducing you to the best and latest future bass tracks. Now without further ado:
The first track of the week is Louis The Child’s remix of “Genghis Khan“. Louis The Child has been one of my favorite duos of 2015, and it sure has been one hell of a year for them, with their track “It’s Strange” making it onto the soundtrack of FIFA’16. With a recent booking to play at Coachella this year, the Chicago-based duo continue their momentum. With their latest remix, Louis The Child take the catchy vocal tune and complements it with their bass kicks and groovy melody.
CRNKN’s latest track “Corridorz” features a Chrono Trigger sample throughout the track with the usage of strings and excellent synthwork to go alongside the bass heavy drops. CRNKN does a great job with his flip on a classic video game theme.
Sydney-baded producer, Empia, an artist that has recently caught my eye recently released his remix of Kygo’s “Stay“, maintaining the uplifting vibe of the original track with Maty Noyes’ soft vocals and adding his own energetic flip.
Lastly, one of my favorites, Moving Castle’s Manila Killa just released his first original a few hours ago titled “All That’s Left”. Manila Killa’s signature groovy sound that he’s really established over time with his much loved remixes is clearly present in this track. The track gives off an emotional yet whimsical vibe as Manila Killa weaves the beats to bring the listener “around and round on this carousel” that Joni Fatora sings about.
