Listen to this! Just stop everything else you are doing, close your eyes and listen. And then listen again. Slovakian producer Keosz has been blowing us away for a while now with his dark take on atmospheric, bassy electronica, but he’s just gone and raised the bar.
The product of a collaboration with a duo from Brighton known as Fearful and featuring BlackLouis on the mic, Scars is easily one of the hardest hitting examples of bass music that I have heard this year. Everything about this track screams power and style, starting with the solitary kick drum drowned in ambient screeching, dropping with a surge of menacing bass and then exploding with the finest set of hats you could wish to hear (ok, ok, humour me, I like hats…). BlackLouis’ flow is flawless from beginning to end and the sound is nothing short of phenomenal.
If you hasn’t heard of Keosz before, remember the name.
