Zeds Dead has released their latest offering from their forthcoming We Are Deadbeats Vol. 4 label compilation. Entitled “Bumpy Teeth,” the joint Subtronics track clocks in as the Canadian duo’s last release of another fruitful year.
Following their Urbandawn collaboration “Sound of the Underground,” the newest single diverges from the former’s drum n’ bass tinges, but parallels on levels of bass intensity with Subtronics lending a hand to its riddim-redolent nuances. The fourth edition of the Deadbeats compilation will see highly anticipated features from the likes of Ganja White Night, Dion Timmer, Delta Heavy, and more. We Are Deadbeats Vol. 4 is out January 14th, 2020 Deadbeats.
“Bumpy Teeth” brings the respective stylistic aspects of both Zeds Dead and Subtronics to the table—honing in detailed melodies while constructing dastardly destructive bass sounds. The track fades in with a chiming piano line caressed by laser-like synths and cosmic undertones before laying down thrashing sound design and skin-crawling instrumentals. Playing with rhythmic structures and off-beat chord embellishments, “Bumpy Teeth” and its reggaestep-inspired productions trade off with heavy bass—ultimately, proving a rollercoaster for the listener’s senses.
