Kompany and Wooli are currently two of the most exciting names in bass music. Regularly showing face at Excision‘s hallmark bass events Lost Lands and Bass Canyon, the two have an arsenal of hard-hitting releases on Circus Records, Never Say Die, and more. The pair have collaborated multiple times already, resulting in battering dub weapons, “Briddim Bomb,” “Thicc Boi,” “The Cave,” and more. Adding to their shared portfolio once again, Wooli and Kompany are back with one of their heaviest singles to date—”Bussback.”
“Bussback” has been handed around for live sets quite a bit now. Fans might recognize this hard-hitting tune from Wooli’s The Voyage Tour mix and Kompany’s collaborative mix with Sullivan King, The Road to Bass Canyon, as well as an uncountable amount of live shows and festival performances. The massive drops highlight the unique sound design talents of both formidable producers. Now it’s finally out courtesy of Never Say Die. Listen below, but fair warning, this one isn’t for the faint of heart.
Dr. Ozi has been gracing the stage of multiple shows and festivals for years now and has been releasing tons of music along the way. No stranger to the game, he’s been tearing up eardrums for awhile, creating tunes that are both sonically pleasing and intuitively creative. He recently released a spicy new single with
Crankdat isn’t easing into the new year. He is diving right in with the pedal to the floor, with a high octane single to kickstart 2020. The track, “Who I Am,” makes for a fitting title, as the track bounces and bops between styles, making it difficult to put the new tune in a single musical category. Crankdat has another battering set piece on his hands with “Who I Am,” proctoring a heavy-handed new cut that’s designed for live performance mayhem.
The track opens with humming bass notes that are interwoven with chanting, synthesized vocals. A drum line picks up the energy until Crankdat abruptly lays in siren-like synths and deafening wubs. The track weaves together a head-spinning variety of different elements, all coming together to create a sporadic yet addicting whole. The single marks Crankdat’s return to Monstercat after releasing emotive “Falling” on the label a few months prior.
Boombox Cartel rears his gentler, more melodic side on his new feeler, “Remember.” With catchy vocal chops and filtered rolling synths, the track dips and dives through serene atmosphere guided by a sturdy percussive backbone.
The Mexican-born, LA-based producer flaunts his sensitive touch in this new project, adding to his versatile aural toolbox. Some might know Boombox as a heavy hitter, judging from his highly-anticipated annual DIAS DE LOS MUERTOSmix or his track”“Moon Love” with Nessly, among a menagerie of other bass-burgeoning trap mayhem. After gaining massive recognition from tracks like “B2U,” the Mad Decent-signee act has worked closely in the studio and on tour with contending heavyweights bass counterparts such as Flosstradamus, NGHTMRE, Bro Safari, and more.
“Remember” is his newest release since “All I Want” with California songwriter Griff Clawson. He’s also partnered with Dillon Francis, Desiigner, and MadeinTYO on releases this year.

One of the best things about Holy Ship! is that, since the first departure back in 2012, the event has always catered to an open interpretation of dance music. That’s one of the reasons “Shipfam” has become such an enthusiastic and tight-knit community.
Careful steps are taken to ensure that the all-too-common musical elitism of other boutique events has no place on the ship. The landlocked edition, Holy Ship! Wrecked (HSW), taking place early next year in Punta Cana, promises to mirror its history in that regard. Accordingly, HSW’s lineup includes heavy-hitters and rising stars from all across the electronic spectrum.
That spectrum includes bass, of course. One of the most exciting acts to trickle onto this year’s beached blowout is most definitely Ivy Lab. Since their inception in 2013, this duo (formerly trio) have built their reputation on diversity and aural innovation. They follow the mold laid by dozens of niche-carving UK counterparts, manipulating the low-end to work for their sound as they tackle hip-hop, grime, breakbeat, and trap.
Their recent mix, a Dancing Astronaut exclusive, for Holy Ship! Wrecked not only explores the various nooks and crannies of Ivy Lab’s boundless influences, it features unreleased IDs, as well as every track from their brand new EP entitled Space War out on their own 20/20 LDN Recordings.
A staple in the bass music scene, Zomboy is known and loved for his consistently innovative sound design and wildly powerful drops. 2019 has already been an amazing year for fans, with the release of EPs Rott N’ Roll: Part 2 and Rott N’ Roll Part 2: Remixed, as well as DJ Snake collaboration “Quiet Storm.” With the year quickly coming to a close, the world has received another coveted Zomboy original, courtesy of dubstep super-label Never Say Die.
After opening with a series of eerie individual synths, “Archangel” expands into a full cinematic intro before quickly moving into a tense buildup. The drop begins with Zomboy’s signature vocal tag, followed by utter chaos as deep growls and high-pitched screeches intertwine. Sure to edge its way into major festivals and shows around the world, take a listen now before it inevitably makes its way into countless DJ sets.
The bass demon Kai Wachi has officially dropped his brand new EP “All my Demons” and it is an energetic, fast-paced whirlwind of tracks that is sure to hit you hard. A compilation of tunes that clearly represent Kai Wachi and his musical talents, it is no wonder this artist has been a staple in
