When it comes to intelligently crafted, mid tempo bass music, there’s just nobody in the business that does it like the Headtron
team. The Los Angles based record label features a crew of fire-breathing—well bass-breathing dragons, who eat, sleep, and breathe glitch. And fire. No, bass. Forget the analogy.
The squad released their critically acclaimed album Disciples of Headtron: Vol 1
in January, so it was about time that they compiled some fresh new tunes for all their die-hard fans. Their previous album consisted of all original tunes, and now the collective brings us The Disciples Remixes: Vol 1
, which takes some classic hip-hop tunes, and adds that well-needed edge.
Opening up the release is “Pu$SY,” which gets the remix from GoldRush
. He churns the song up with some buttery bass lines, while injecting an unlimited supply of soulful synth lines; bet you can’t enjoy this tune just once. Next up is “Trust” by Gladkill
, which will have any listener floating through a sea of atmospheric bass lines. Keep an eye out for this dude, because everything he puts out is solid gold.
“I Want To Be Evil” gets the revamp treatment from Stephan Jacobs
, who takes on the track‘s unorthodox vocals, and creates a thunderous cut that continues to show his rapid progression. Jacobs is making his rounds throughout the US with the Identity Festival and Pretty Lights, so be sure to check out his touring schedule.
“Foolish” is a monstrous remix from Sugarpill
, who unleashes a tantalizing set of instrumentations that will have any listener entering an instant state of immersion. ChrisB
brings a whole new meaning to the club anthem “Bottoms Up,” and injects it with some effervescent dub lines and pulsating drum claps. The two also come together via their Swordfight moniker on “The Vent,” and create a breathtaking underbelly for Big K.R.I.T.’s emotive vocals.
The Disciples Remixes: Volume 1 is a powerful release that is sure to please the ears of all you glitch heads out there. The album also features ubiquitous tunes from Jupit3r
, and Russ Liquid
, so be sure to check what each artist brought to the table.
