WaveCraft Collective’s Underground Bass Compilation: “Resurgence: Vol 1”
Heavy, dark, and hitting hard from every angle, Resurgence: Vol 1 is the first installment of an album series from the WaveCraft Collective.
The album features six tracks, accumulated from different underground bass artists.
Leet presents “Mystify,” a deep and slow build-up with lyrics by Brotha Nature, leaving the listener with lingering tones of dark hip-hop. Third on the album is MLOTIK with “No Hype,” a song which nosedives head-first into heavy metal elements, reminiscent of the artist’s characteristically high energy tunes, including their collaboration with Space Wizard called “The Dive” and latest single, “Temple.” Both members of MLOTIK are from Europe, and their inspiration from various artists in the UK is evident in their work.
Next, the album features Smol’s “So High,” which mashes together all sorts of noises on the entire spectrum of sound into an incredible UFO abduction experience, with a surprise dash of house music at the very end. Not something one would expect from this compilation of artists, but we love a song that keeps us on our toes.
No. five on the album is Innocent’s “New Beginning,” which pulls from different glitchy sounds and chops to create an unorthodox dubstep approach. This one may be the heaviest of the album, yet starts off melodic and slow.
Finally, to close out the album is a collaboration between JamL and Zadkiel titled, “To The Flow.” This final song begins with even more glitch than the preceding song by Innocent. The duo comes together to create noises that ricochet around and smash into each other inside the listener’s ears.
Overall, the album dives into the grungy side of experimental bass and dubstep, and will leave the listener hyped for Vol. 2 from WaveCraft Collective.
