MUST DIE! shocks the bass scene with first LP in nearly six years, ‘CRISIS VISION’ [Interview]

Longtime innovator within the bass music community MUST DIE! makes a powerful statement with CRISIS VISION, his sophomore LP—and the follow-up to 2014’s Death & Magic—which packs a plethora of rare collaborations and head-turning into its 13 song tracklist. Incorporating elements of dubstep, hardstyle, house, and more, the diverse collection under the CRISIS VISION title head is a reflection of MUST DIE!’s evolution as an artist that raises the bar for creativity in the heavier end of the electronic dance music space. Singles from CRISIS VISION slowly rolled out since 2020, with “NERVE DAMAGE,” “DON’T EVEN BOTHER,” “HELLBURST,” “SORROW TECH,” and “LOL OK” all giving listeners a glimpse into the future of MUST DIE!. The Never Say Die staple has no problem breaking the standard rules of music production, as evidenced by his auspicious and potentially even risky decisions, such as putting a large amount of reverb on the sub bass in “HELLBURST.” But, rules are made to be broken, and MUST DIE! shatters them beautifully, with each single on the album offering a wildly innovative sonic experience that makes CRISIS VISION unlike anything else that is currently out there. Dancing Astronaut spoke with MUST DIE! about his experience during the tumultuous year now in the rearview, Dungeons & Dragons, and, of course, his monumental new album.This is your first full-length LP since 2014’s Death and Magic.
