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.

Ookay releases gargantuan bass EP, ‘NICE!,’ that is anything but just okay

Ookay releases gargantuan bass EP, ‘NICE!,’ that is anything but just okayDa Black Swan For Insomniac 1 1

Ookay is quite the versatile producer, from his shocking heavy bass headings at the raucous Lost Lands festival to his  caressing melodies on the Billboard charts. The Marshmello collaborator, real name, Abe’ Laguna, just released his NICE! EP, the heavy-handed offspring of the producer’s darker side.

“Can You Hear Me” offers a cinematic entrance into bright lights and nervous temptations. Eerie synths drive the energy upwards into stark contrast of high and low-end frequencies. Call the party police on this one, because it’s primed to incite an urge to break stuff.

“IDGAF” gives life to Ookay’s effervescent party nature, presenting illusions of structure alongside absurd mayhem in a single keystroke. In quite a similar vein, “Pick It Up” is fun and jovial, showcasing the producers dancehall skills. “Revolution” revs its engine, running with a rock-styled center, placing the guitar front and center with anthem vocals and an electro-house drop that certainly wasn’t concocted in your grandma’s kitchen.

“STRUT” hails a finale intro and final walk-and-bow to the artistic energy unflinchingly exuded from Ookay. The exclamatory work, on the whole, is likely to warrant volatile dance moves from all ends, while demonstrating Ookay’s continued dedication to building his live performance, playing out his stage fantasy, and entertaining on a worldwide stage.
