Subtronics is quickly becoming one of the biggest names in dubstep. His signature bouncy, yet mechanical sound design is matched by his incredibly recognizable flow, and has gained him support from a plethora of bass music legends.
Pushing the riddim subgenre to its limits, the Pennsylvania DJ/Producer teams up with a fellow massive name in the industry, Ganja White Night, for “Headband.”
This tight, triumphant, low-end heavy bass ode to singularity kicks hard and low with highly punctuated and colorful, yet deeply rich bass tones
They go in hard with Alan Watts samples, taking up important positions in the track, conversations with the cosmos, decoding the nature of existence and physical reality.
It spanks you with wisdom while getting kicked in the face with the bass with golden nuggets like: "well the point is that from a strictly phsyical and scientific standpoint this organism is a continuous energy with everything else that is going on" and “Cease to identify with the ego.”
The best way I can articulate the sound is as a divine cosmic dub/bass orchestra.
Subtronics brings such a powerful, dark, yet still groovy vibe to each track he’s on and it meshes perfectly with GWN’s sound. This romping lil piece of wub dubz will go down in the drives as a classic as the artists themselves continue exploring their own worlds of sound. Infinite Replay Sequence, initiated!
You can catch Subtronics alongside Boogie T, HE$H, Al Ross, and so many more lords of the heavy at The Untz Festival from May 31 to June 2 in Mariposa, California. Tickets on sale at www.theuntzfestival.com.
