Coming from one of the biggest dubstep (and overall heavy, bass driven music) fanatics – it was rather difficult to make the transition to a more downtempo, hip-hop influenced type of production method. With friends who just wouldn’t stop playing artists like Flume, Cashmere Cat and 123mrk – I was prepped to groove straight into a style of music that I was previously closed-minded to ever give a chance.
Today, a smattering of electronic dance music producers possess their own unique approach when it comes to creating a downtempo, hip-hop or trap-influenced track and based on their own individual idiosyncratic takes on the genre, the method with garner a name. Productions such as these from this next producer, Kasbo, have been labled as Future Bass, Garage, Love-Trap, 2-step, Chill-Trap, Chillout, Crunkwave, Flume-Step (ironically), Midtempo, Trap-Step, Moombahtrap, Future Garage, Deep House, Future, Ambient, IDM and way too many others.
For the sake of our own sanity, we will usually refer to it as Future Bass…unless we’re trying to keep ya’ on your toes. Stagnation can be so, well boring really.
If you don’t like it, sue us (please don’t, we have no money).
Kasbo, an 18 year-old EDM producer based out of Gothenburg, Sweden (go figure), has certainly caught the attention of the bold, beautiful, bulbed-brethren here at Rager Onions HQ (we’re so modest). Filling out the frequencies with heavily melodic and lush productions, this young up-and-comer looks to have a bright future in this game we call the EDM industry.
We are sure you’ll agree after listening to the four elegantly composed pieces below.
