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.

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.

A new year, a new decade, and a new five-track Nitti Gritti EP? What a time to be alive, indeed. After teasing fans for a few months with early releases of Shaquille O’Neal, Ookay, and Funtcase features, Nitti’s full What A Time To Be Alive EP has finally been arrived, adding a solo-produced title track and Yako collaboration “Shenzhen.” Spoiler alert: all five tracks are some serious bass music shakers.
From house music to future bass to dubstep, with a Latin Grammy nod to boot, Nitti Gritti is carving out a name for himself as one of the most genre diverse electronic producers of the day. What A Time To Be Alive highlights Nitti Gritti’s affinity for bass music, while showcasing his impressive and variant command of styles. The EP’s Shaquille O’Neal collaboration “Takin’ Over” is a heavy moshpit-inducing dubstep piece while the Yako collaboration, “Shenzhen” lends itself to two unique trap-influenced breaks with a deeper, growling sound design. For all fans of bass music, this EP is a must-listen.
New Blackmill should serve as a serendipitous Christmas gift for any melodic dubstep/chillstep devotee. The track, “Redemption,” arrives with all the age-old “Let It Be” creator’s ethereal bells and whistles. It seems there could not be an apter title for the new track from the British, eternally under-the-radar producer, who partakes in 0 DJing or touring.
Pensive strings pluck into eternity, while technicolor melodies arpeggiate over the top-end. All the while, the track’s chugging bassline and classic dubstep snares keep the atmospheric heart of the composition fierce and focalized. Blackmill, as per usual, proffers a pristine addition to any study, chill-out, workout, or afterhours playlist.
“Redemption,” according to the producer himself, arrives just in front of a full-blown album ready for release. By the looks of it, a bet that 2020 will be the long-awaited year that Blackmill sees a real return seems a safe wager. On behalf of the largely dormant melodic dubstep community, welcome back, Blackmill.

Remember the trippy “Tunnel of Terror” scene from “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”? If that scene had its own theme song, the new release from WYLIN would’ve been it. The Minneapolis resident’s “Oompa Loompa” is a dark, heavy, yet banging tune that will make you see the film’s most memorable character in completely different
Hardstyle and bass music specialist Kayzo has teamed up with riddim cyclops Subtronics for a truly unforgettable collaboration: “Braincase.” Both of these talented producers have had massive years full of performances and original releases.
Welcome Records labelhead Kayzo, known for his intertwining of rock elements with bass anthems, embarked on headline tours and took over festival main stages around the world, including Excision‘s own Lost Lands, and released full length album Unleashed.
Subtronics, known for his riddim roots and dubstep hits, released chart-topping Griz collaboration “Griztronics,” as well as Wakaan-esque experimental and wobbly EP Wooked on Tronics. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of this collaboration since Subtronics first began teasing it on social media months ago.
The unique styles of both artists are felt throughout “Braincase,” starting with the powerful electric guitar shreds in the intro that create the perfect tension leading up to the drop. The drop comes in two parts. Initially, and somewhat surprisingly, “Braincase” pulls listeners in with a lighthearted, bouncy psytrance drop, before shifting into a massive headbanger-friendly dubstep anthem courtesy of Subtronics. This powerful single is certain to make its rounds in next year’s DJ sets, so keep a lookout.
