This music video is dope as hell, just like the audio was when it first dropped. The extremely far-out, trippy, animated futuristic visuals are the perfect ‘vision’ for the out of control combination of sounds and feels by this group of next level producers. I’d really love to see more collaborations by these four, shit

Whether you’ve been following along with us this year on the new trap music section or even following our trap music Spotify playlist, trap has had quite the incredible year. With artists such as QUIX, Getter, and Ekali really making a name for themselves, trap music is expected to boom once again in 2018. To
What So Not is evidently aiming for the top in 2018. The artist has been laying low for most of the year besides a few shows and a B2B tour with Baauer… other than that he has been preparing for his worldwide takeover in 2018 with the release of his yet to be titled debut LP.

Experimental DJ-producer sumthin sumthin has delivered his rendition of UZ‘s “Lobby” featuring QUIX and Chaz French. The song is to be featured on the extensive remix album accompanying UZ’s Layers LP, released earlier this year via UZ’s own Quality Goods Records. Also released recently on Quality Goods was sumthin sumthin’s own Afterglow EP. The four-track EP displays the California-based artist’s innovative, genre-defiant production technique.
Sumthin sumthin has added his own wonky twist to the original melodic trap framework of “Lobby.” In addition to the heavily pitched-down bass, sumthin sumthin has also infused a bit of strangeness into the track with his own fragmented, shattered glass-reminiscent sampling. Still audible are the metallic textures from UZ’s initial effort, though the remix features a more warped, glitchy sound design.
AWOLNATION‘s “Run” shows off the band’s aptitude in electronic sound design, making the single an ideal candidate for re-molding. This reality finally manifested when prolific bass talents What So Not and QUIX elected to provide their take on the piece, and the result is quite raunchy.
The pair amplify the original’s hardened nature with a trap layout, creating an even more tense feel by moving the strong portions to the beginning and cascading into a deep pit of bass and wild synthesizers. If their aim was to design a piece to rattle the dancefloor, they’ve certainly accomplished it in full force.
What So Not has had quite a busy year in 2017, making each release a welcome treat by fans. Meanwhile, QUIX has been steadily burrowing his way into the bass sphere with a plethora of remixes and collaborations with other burgeoning talent.
Years of cultivating a distinctive, heady bass sound have culminated into KRANE‘s debut album Fallout. The expansive project has been in the works for some time, during which he compiled all his influences into a cohesive body of work which he states represents “much of my personal sound and background developed over the years of listening to and creating music.” Diving deeper than the average trap artist, KRANE sought to make an album that would be a full expression of him, beyond just music, drawing inspiration from “the aesthetics of movies, television and literature” he enjoys as well.
Fallout thus resulted in a ten-piece collection of heavy, yet enthralling numbers. KRANE wastes little time in reaching high levels of energy. After a smooth “Chemical,” which offers a more “mellowed” soundscape that is warmed by Ahsha & Lemay’s vocal contribution, the Bay Area producer hops right into a festival-ready “Next World.” The QUIX-assisted record is a minimal, yet dramatic trap effort with a cinematic climax at the end wrought by strings samples and buzzing chords.
KRANE truly demonstrates his roots in the wild side of the bass realm through Fallout. A wide array of its compositions are made for the dance space, and make for an invigorating listening in any environment. “Hollow (ft. SLUMBERJACK),” for example, plays around with Eastern-inspired melodies that pep up the lower frequencies. Spitfire verses by Nick Row paired with tingling breakdowns and heavy drops makes “PCP” one of the weightiest cuts on the LP. “Forgotten” fosters a futuristic atmosphere, aided by retro-inspired synthesizers and subtle vocoded vocal accents.
However, the bass maven’s softer side shines on this album as well. He uses a future bass medium for tracks of this variety on Fallout, and pairs it with an assortment of melodic progressions that conjure sentimentality. Through its closer “Nobody But You,” KRANE paints an almost poignant mental picture that is amplified by soaring melodies and gentle rhythms. “Titan,” which features Nolan van Lith, uses arpeggios and titillating highs to create hair-raising effect. His “Away From You” interlude shows off his jazzy side, as sweeping notes and celestial sampling make even ambient sound charged.
Fallout was released on October 26. Purchase the album here.
