Even through a global pandemic, some artists simply didn't slow things down.
Stateside bass act Kumarion is one such artist, and since the release of his hybrid trap hit "Want It," through drum & bass stompers like "Enemy," "Instinct," and "Wanna," he's solidified his dominance over the stateside drum & bass community. Now, Kumarion makes his Monstercat debut with a roaring new single called "Pure Action" to expand his empire even further.
The skilled producer's latest combines shuffling, syncopated drum breaks with a sporadic yet controlled bassline for a track that's true to its title. The action doesn't quit, even in the breakdown and buildup sections through the effective use of a repeating vocal sample and alarm-like synths that build the energy to release at the drops.
A switch-up in the drum pattern at the second drop ensures that "Pure Action" remains fresh throughout, and falls perfectly in line with Kumarion's previous works, while bringing a new type of energy to the table as 2021's halfway mark approaches.

“Getting my music on Monstercat is one of the many goals that I wanted to achieve when I first started," said Kumarion in a statement. "I love how much they support drum and bass in North America. Really grateful how supportive they’ve been of my project.”
As expected, Kumarion's Monstercat debut is not only a showcase of the young producer's talent, but his penchant for expanding on his own sound in a massive way with each release. Fans will be chomping at the bit to hear what's next from Kumarion in the second half of 2021.
