As the safe return of music festivals becomes more and more of a reality, bass music fans are dusting off their neck braces. Ergo, head-bangers rejoiced today after two of dubstep's most popular artists released one of the genre's most anticipated collaborations in recent memory.
Subtronics and Excision have finally unveiled "Bunker Buster," a long-awaited song that was debuted back in December 2019 during the former's performance at HiJinx. Teeth-chattering bass ripples through each of the single's three unique drops, which contain signature elements of both producers' styles. However, fans shouldn't simply fast-forward to the loudest part of the waveform. The verses of "Bunker Buster" are jaw-dropping, kicking off with beautiful synth programming that eventually mutates into a frenetic lead patch before all hell breaks loose.
The third and final drop is perhaps most devastating, as Subtronics and Excision decided to eliminate the kick-snare at the onset and build tension before unloading a vicious dubstep segment. It introduces a screeching sub bass that really brings the track home with a nasty punch. Needless to say, if Lost Lands moves forward as planned, this one is going to slay its stages.
