8.08 Day: A bass lover’s neck-breaking nirvana [PLAYLIST]

8.08 Day: A  bass lover’s neck-breaking nirvana [PLAYLIST]808 Day

8/08 day is an annual cause for resounding celebration. The iconic Roland drum machine played a quintessential role in electronic, hip-hop, and pop’s development, with its imprint permanently stamped on a vast amount of top-charting singles of the ’80s and ’90s. While, the mechanism became antiquated by the turn of millennium, on account of oversaturation, lack of availability, and Roland’s plans to propel newer gear to the forefront, this was far from the end of its legacy. 

Fast-forward another decade: the 808 revival had begun. Rappers like Kanye West found that the instrument added a unique, crisp edge to the low-end of their productions, whilst dance music innovators like Aphex Twin found other creative ways to utilize the 808 for maximum impact. Today, a good deal of producers appreciate the vintage appeal it offers; so much so, that Roland even revived the 808 in 2017. 

We honor this musical staple with a series of larger-than-life tunes by Skrillex, Eptic, RL Grime, Dillon Francis, Bassnectar, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, and more from heavy-handed listeners’ legion of 808 legends who have allowed this instrument to shine in the dance space over the years. In 808, we trust.

Dillon Francis never ceases to surprise. The producer announced via social media recently that he has a “ton” of new music coming, and he has kept true to this promise. After releasing “Let it Go” with Eptic to kick off the month of August, Francis has followed up swiftly, heading in an entirely new direction with next release, “Til I Die,” alongside cutting edge R&B duo THEY.

“Til I Die” blends rock tropes with chanting rap vocals that come together to form an unexpected, complementary fusion of the collaborators’ respective sounds. The track certainly boasts mainstream appeal as THEY. lace their punchy vocals around cascading electric guitar riffs. “Til I Die” is out now via Avant Garden/Island Records.

Monstercat has signed on two powerhouses for its latest release. Dillon Francis and Eptic bring a hefty taste of moombahton to the label in “Let It Go,” an audacious piece high in energy and main stage appeal. The track starts off on a sentimental note, with soft synths and deep vocal melodies easing the listener in. Then comes the switch up: these feel-good elements lead into a wild soundscape filled with classic moombah rhythms and buzzing bass. These contrasting elements in “Let It Go” ensure a wild ride from start to finish that will surely be covering dancefloors far and wide for the coming months.

Both Dillon Francis and Eptic have been behind some notable collaborative tunes in 2019. Eptic made waves with DJ Snake earlier in the year with their kinetic “SouthSide,” while Francis continued to explore genre fusion in his piece with lovelytheband, “Change Your Mind.”

DJ Snake and Eptic pair for fiery, ‘SouthSide’

To some Millennials, “SouthSide” might stir nostalgia around the mellow 2004 classic with Lloyd and Ashanti. DJ Snake and Eptic have arrived to take the “SouthSide” reigns, however, and what they’ve done is created a piece that is catastrophically satisfying for those who enjoy a heavy dose of bass in their musical palette. The tune features sinister note progressions and dramatic builds, only to drop into an utter explosion of robotic sound effects and bass that is designed to blow brains out. It’s violent, headbang-worthy, and primed to become a festival season anthem.

“SouthSide” comes just a week after DJ Snake’s last effort on his label First Classe—a sleek, midtempo collaboration with Plastic Toy. The French superstar has had a promising 2019 so far, producing hits with Tyga and G-Eazy while earning yet another landmark achievement with “Taki Taki” earning one billion streams in just four months.
