Antiserum & Mayhem“Bangladesh / Trippy”(Firepower Records)Release Date: 12th March 2013 (Beatport)
Firepower Records is notorious for bringing together some of the bass music’s most sought after producers, and fourteen releases deep Datsik continues to keep his catalogue as fresh and on-point as ever. Having worked with artists such as Tyga, Gucci Mane, Travis Porter, Trouble, 12th Planet, and Brillz in the past, here Antiserum and Mayhem collide for the next installment on Firepower and release two bass laden bombs, ‘Bangladesh’ and ‘Trippy’.
Fusing an array of styles Antiserum and Mayhem conquer untouched ground and unleash their own vibrant take on trap music. Combining its hypnotic sampling with skittering hi-hats and clipped vocals, ‘Bangladesh’ conjures up plenty of heat with its drawn out bass drop and warped synths. Up next ‘Trippy’ breaks through with its southern swagger and bumping 808 bassline. A cascade of swirling synths soon gives way to bubbling, psychedelic synths to create a powerful club ready record with the credentials to match.
Antiserum and Mayhem are pioneering the trap genre, fusing it with elements of dubstep and pushing the envelope as they do things that haven’t been done before. This hasn’t gone unnoticed and they have had support from some of bass music’s most respected tastemakers including Andy C, TeeBee, Dieselboy, Noisia, Black Sun Empire, Skrillex, Diplo, Datsik, and Flux Pavillion. With Datsik giving them the seal of approval for Firepower you can expect to hear lots more from these innovative producers in 2013.
