Two of the most trailblazing producers in the bass music scene have joined forces to drop their first-ever collab, a monster trap and dubstep hybrid called "Back to Back."

Excision and UBUR unveiled the track today via the former's Subsidia Records banner, dropping a monster tune that bursts at the seams with forward-thinking sound design. The arrangement here is something to marvel at, as it manages to effortlessly incorporate three wholly unique drops in its mind-bending three minutes.

"Back to Back," which features a stellar Armanni Reign, begins with a relentless verse that churns along to frenetic breakbeat drum programming and raucous guitar riffs. Excision and UBUR go on to unload a ferocious first drop, expertly interpolating the main vocal sample with screeching bass patches. The second drop is a flat out masterstroke in bass music production, a wonky trap segment that beautifully showcases the nuanced techniques of both producers. Quirky, metallic shots tickle the senses here in a riveting drop, the conclusion of which seems like a perfect place to tie a bow on the song.

However, Excision and UBUR instead introduce a menacing vocal sample: "I'm not finished with you yet." It's here where all hell breaks loose. They seamlessly automate the BPM into a tempo more familiar for head-bangers, building the tension before revealing a vicious riddim drop that is bound to go off at Lost Lands this year.
