One of the most creative minds in bass music, MUST DIE! returns with a genre blending new track, “Bliss 2K.” Jumping rope with the lines that separate genres, it truly showcases MUST DIE!’s (real name Lee Bates) sound design expertise.

The chaotic nature of the track is revealed in the opening line, “I only ever wanted you to suffer.” What follows the ominous introductory line is a blistering bass music tune that weaves through dubstep, hardstyle, and beyond.

Bates himself was particularly proud of his latest release and called it his best work to date.
