LUZCID & Jantsen Team Up For “Submarine”
Kairos Audio released their latest single featuring two dubstep heavy-hitters. Both LUZCID and Jantsen have proved themselves as bass masterminds with their expertise in grimy drops and booty shakin’ melodies. These two have also gained recognition from the bass god himself, Bassnectar, with a dozen collaborations on the Amorphous Music label such as “Science Fiction” and “What.” After solidifying their presence in the electronic music scene, LUZCID and Jansten work together on “Submarine” to showcase their talent of exploring subsonic levels of filthy bass.
LUZCID specializes in space music to provide the listener with an experience similar to lucid dreaming. Neil Berry from Houston “uses ableton live to weld a sonic quilt of sensationally hefty hip-hoppy psychedelic bass music.” LUZCID’s ingenuity brings an expansive look to dubstep and creates new landscapes for the mind to play within while being guided by his enchanting sound.
Co-creator of the Kairos Audio label, Jantsen, wields his experience and expertise in bass music as a majestic sword cutting through mediocrity. Jantsen Robertson has gained recognition as an expert producer/DJ with the ability to transform the dance floor into booty shakin’ madness. With an eclectic sound that is constantly evolving, Jantsen caters to listeners in search of bass-driven tracks laced with hip-hop lyrics. As a member of Amorphous Music label, Jantsen remains an artist on the rise and inventor of high-quality bass music.
With less than a month since its’ release and over 100k plays on SoundCloud, “Submarine” has gained massive attention from bassheads everywhere. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since both LUZCID and Jantsen have proved themselves as experts in the bass music scene. The track begins with distorted nautical vibes which help illustrate the aqueous atmosphere. Glitchy vocals bounce with buoyancy as the high-pitched synth melody comes in strong. Hip-hop lyrics accentuate the bass building in the background while the inevitable drop lingers in the forefront of the listener’s mind.
The title of the track signals that the listener is about to go on adventure. Break beats set off before the bass drop and lyrics emphasize “submarine” status through a deep, grimy drop. A bouncy deep bass with hip-hop lyrics demand listener’s attention and incite booty shakin’. The bass growls like an underwater sea monster with subtle bass bubbling to the surface. A siren in the middle of the track transforms “Submarine” into a more glitchy sound. The second chorus experiments with timing and is even more subsonic than the one before for a heavier, more danceable track.
Buoyant, bouncy synths continue throughout the track to emphasize the nautical feel of the track. The interlude is somewhat spacey and leads the listener further into the unknown. Traveling on a submarine through layers of sound creates a unique soundscape. The final chorus is drawn out, then slows down to merely an echo. You have arrived to the surface as a newly enlightened being.
