The Denver-based producer known as Toy Box (real name Carter Matthews) is here with his latest release, "Baby Squanch." Matthews is known for taking listeners on a melodic journey with more future bass-inclined tracks but today, he decided to switch things up and throw in more bass. Though he's killed it in the past with a more folky sound, it's exciting to see him step out of his element. "Baby Squanch" is out now via's partner label, Indie Select.

Of the single, Matthew said:

"This was the result of trying to blend melodic and dubstep styles together. I rarely try to make a bass banger so it took longer than I expected to create. I’m happy with how it turned out because it’s fun to play out, but doesn’t sound like your usual dubstep."

The track opens with some ambient sounds typical to his traditional releases. He delivers angelic-sounding synths that beautifully lay down an almost theremin-like sound. As the song progresses we get introduced to the gurgling bass that completely switches speed from the first half of the track. It's a great melding of genres.
