It’s a special day in music when two forces of bass come together to create something as mind-blowing as this Relentless Beat of the Week. “Braincase” comes at us as the brainchild of bass music heavyweights Kayzo and Subtronics. Jesse Kardon, better known as Subtronics, is the 24-year-old Philadelphia-born dubstep producer specializing in all things robotic. His work is heavily influenced by the likes of Rusko, Skism, Tomba and Downlink, and the collective efforts of the underground dubstep community. Taking on a core group of followers over SoundCloud in the first few years, he has grown exponentially in the last year, gaining support from a plethora of bass music legends. Subtronic’s signature bouncy yet mechanical sound design is matched by his incredibly recognizable flow, setting him apart from the vast sea of up and coming producers around the world.
Speaking on the new heater, Subtronis took to Twitter to express what this track means to him.
i’ve been wanting to make a psytrance song since long long before i ever got anywhere with dubstep, and yalls response to this @KayzoMusic collab has me hype as fuck
never be scared to get out of ur comfort zone ‼️‼️
