Oregon producer and DJ McKenzie Morrow, or as we know him, Carbin has been dishing out fresh takes on bass and trap since 2016. Having a strong foundation in music by writing scores for his middle school band class and playing bass and electric guitar for his father’s worship, it was inevitable for Morrow to follow a career in the industry. But it wasn’t until he heard Skrillex’s “Bangarang” for the first time that he fell in love with EDM. Coming across a version of Ableton he started making (what he called) one “bad” song after the other before honing his skillset and developing some of the grittiest dubstep pieces we’ve heard today.
Carbin has collaborated with the likes of AFK on “Boss” and Crizzly on “Bangin,’” releasing under Never Say Die, Dim Mak, Firepower, and more. From his first show in 2016 to supporting big names like 12th Planet, Riot Ten, and ATLiens on their tours he’s garnered support from Snails, Adventure Club, and Excision. Making his way along the scene through original and diverse releases and production, Carbin is hitting us with his latest single “Throne.” Out now on Never Say Die, listen below.
The track opens powerfully with retro synths propelling listeners straight into outer space. A monologue reverberates in your ears sending goosebumps fluttering across your body. It devolves into a dark trip, instantly sending you into hyper-speed toward gritty and belligerent dubstep. “Throne” is sure to land on every heavy-hitting playlist out there.
