Hardstyle and bass music specialist Kayzo has teamed up with riddim cyclops Subtronics for a truly unforgettable collaboration: “Braincase.” Both of these talented producers have had massive years full of performances and original releases.
Welcome Records labelhead Kayzo, known for his intertwining of rock elements with bass anthems, embarked on headline tours and took over festival main stages around the world, including Excision‘s own Lost Lands, and released full length album Unleashed.
Subtronics, known for his riddim roots and dubstep hits, released chart-topping Griz collaboration “Griztronics,” as well as Wakaan-esque experimental and wobbly EP Wooked on Tronics. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of this collaboration since Subtronics first began teasing it on social media months ago.
The unique styles of both artists are felt throughout “Braincase,” starting with the powerful electric guitar shreds in the intro that create the perfect tension leading up to the drop. The drop comes in two parts. Initially, and somewhat surprisingly, “Braincase” pulls listeners in with a lighthearted, bouncy psytrance drop, before shifting into a massive headbanger-friendly dubstep anthem courtesy of Subtronics. This powerful single is certain to make its rounds in next year’s DJ sets, so keep a lookout.
