KUURO – Omen

KUURO - Omen

On the heels of their debut performance at Holy Ship 13.0, Luke Shipstad and Jordin Post — aka KUURO — are back to test the boundaries of bass music with their newest Monstercat release, “Omen.”

Listeners may want to plug this one into an enhanced sound system, as the duo’s outwardly turned approach to production is primed for high-decibel output.

“We started ‘Omen’ with the goal of making one of the gnarliest and gritty basslines we’ve ever done,” Shipstad says of the track. “We love how it just cuts through the song so aggressively.”

The track is a forward thrust into bass-laden chaos, with KUURO commanding the attention of listeners.

The duo have also announced a U.S. tour, making club stops in Salt Lake City, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Denver, and many others. In addition, they will be making their southern California debut at Beyond Wonderland in San Bernardino, as well as a festival appearance at Phoenix Lights.

Monstercat expands their reach with Infected Mushroom’s newest release ‘Spitfire’

Kuuro – Doji

This post was originally published on this site

Bass brethren Luke Shipstad and Jordan Post, otherwise known as Kuuro, have returned to Monstercat with their latest malevolent offering, “Doji.” The dubstep-leaning duo, first debuted on the eclectic Canadian label in 2016 with their melodic, yet forceful, “Aamon.” The two have ventured down a variety of nondescript bass-heavy genres, growing their fan base through official remixes for a wide-ranging catalog of prominent artists, including Zeds Dead, Dillon FrancisGalantis, and NGHTMRE.

“Doji” demonstrates the duo’s deep-seated affinity for Asian culture, which is substantially audible in the track’s sound design and ambient instrumentation in the interludes. The drop then thrusts the listener into a darker, foreboding realm of vehement sub-bass.

Zedd – Get Low ft Liam Payne (KUURO Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

This past summer, Zedd and Liam Payne released a beach-ready, tropical-infused track called “Get Low” that climbed the charts all over the world. With an easygoing beat and sexually-charged lyrics, listeners gravitated toward the carefree feel of the single.

Enter KUURO, a heavy-hitting bass duo, who have crafted their own intense future house take on the track. Hastening the original’s pace, KUURO transforms the single’s mellow tone for a comparatively fierce, harder vibe destined for the dance floor. Delivering a thumping drop with dub roots, KUURO’s re-imagination of “Get Low” is a thundering take that won’t soon be forgotten.

KUURO – Swarm

This post was originally published on this site

Dubstep heavyweight duo KUURO have released their hard-hitting dubstep anthem, “Swarm,” on Monstercat.

The electronic duo is composed of Jordin Post and Luke Shipstad. They made their debut on Monstercat in October 2016 with “Aamon.” It was the strongest debut in Monstercat history, and fans quickly drove them to hit the Spotify Viral 50 in four countries. Since then, they’ve remained true to their unmatched production and sound design skills, catering to bass lovers and headbangers across the world.

Following the official remixes for Zedd, Liam Payne, and Boombox Cartel in September, the young duo has released “Swarm,” their sixth release on the Canadian label. Post says the track came to fruition from some simple sound experimentation.

“I was messing around with some sounds and came up with this gnarly bassline that just makes you want to headbang,” Post says.
