04 Aug SUBALT021 – CITY1 feat. RIDER SHAFIQUE – SPEAK OUT EP
Okinawan talent City1 has been making some serious moves with his unique dark productions. His first EP on Subalten Records is coming out on 23-08-2019 vinyl and 30-08-2019 on digital.
01 – Speak Out feat. Rider Shafique
In the mighty title track City1 delivers a clinical slab of bass science which gravitationally pulls deep into a different dimension. The dreamy yet dark atmosphere and vibrant basslines are graced by the elevating bars of none less than the notorious Rider Shafique – one of bass music’s finest vocalists hailing from Bristol.
02 – Koroga
Going even darker, City1 opens up another world in this trip of a track. Koroga rides on relentless dark synths and keeps switching up the pace, leading the listener through a maze of eerie sounds – be careful though, the walls are closing in. Dangerous!
03 – Zee
Zee is just as otherworldly as the first two tracks. With heavy hitting basslines and snappy percussions, City1 delivers yet another absolutely unique roller. Whenever you thought the track had arrived at its peak, it takes another, even wilder turn.
04 – The Deepest [Digital Exclusive]
The first digital exclusive track is called ‚The Deepest‘ for a reason – drowning the listener in a subterranean sea of bass. With a truly hypnotic bassline complimented by subtle percussion, this track is almost calming compared to the rest of the EP; the Japanese producer showcases yet another facet of his original style.
05 – Rut (Speak Out Instrumental) [Digital Exclusive
The instrumental version of the title track ‚Speak Out‘ retains the spiritual vibe of the original & closes the circle on this stunning debut on Subaltern from Japan’s City1.
