There is definitely NOT a lack of bass music to be stoked about this week in Seattle. Tonight Damn Son and Bassdrop Music have teamed up to bring you one of the East Coast’s hottest underground producers, BUKU, straight from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Having spent the last year getting his name out to the world, Buku will be showing Seattle exactly how the East gets down. With support from artists such as Diplo, Kastle, and Starkey…this is definitely not the last you’ll hear of Buku.
See you out tonight!
The Toronto based producer Nightizm, has just released a nice two track EP free for download on his soundcloud as well as bandcamp! The EP has a trap sounding base however you can hear Nightizm’s unique sound within it, which I love.
The first track titled “Zone Four” has a dark spacey vibe to it, with amazing sub work to go along with the massive pads. It moves along with deep chords and spacey verbs while the sub subtly blows your mind. The second of the subby duo, “Plight” has the same dark vibe yet it maintains its own character with various reverberated samples and pads with more of a traditional trap sound. Both of these tunes are well produced sub/trap masterpieces from Nightizm, sure have your head bobbing and your sub thumping. Big ups to Nightizm for this one!

It’s not everyday I can say I’ve heard some new ‘original’ sounding trap, however today there was not a normal day. A few minutes after throwing on my SoundCloud player on my Iphone I found myself bobbing my head uncontrollably on the bus to some unknown tune. I dug my phone out of my pocket to check out who this mystery bass badman was, and found that I was listening to Buku’s new unreleased track that’s coming out on Never Say Die Records, FULLAGOLD. There is only a preview up so far…but it’s definitely enough to know that you’ll be hearing this one in the club worldwide all summer long. From the epic intro to the dubstepish trap wobbles that Buku subtly incorporates into this tune….everything just works. April 21st you’ll be able to get your copy of NEVER SAY DIE, VOLUME TWO, which has tracks from Buku, Dodge & Fuski, Schoolboy, Killagraham, Mobscene, Antiserum, and more.
