Here at Conscious Electronic, we love all things bass — breakbeat, downtempo, left-field, experimental, dubstep in all its forms, you name it. As the underground bass movement has begun its full ascendancy in the US, we’ve been keeping a finger on the pulse of up-and-coming bass artists the country over. As such, CE‘s Rising Bass Spotlight seeks to turn a focus onto those rising producers who’re developing their craft, garnering their audiences, and turning eyes, ears, heads, and bodies with their commitment to all things low end.
Sully may not be a name anyone knows, but for fans of heavy wubs and weird bass, he is one rising artist that needs to be on everyone’s radar. The Los Angeles based producer, real name Chris Sullivant, has just released his hard-hitting debut single, “Frequency Shift.”
Merging elements of dubstep with old school drum and bass, the track lures listeners in with its ominous sounds and pulsing bass right off the bat. As drum n’ bass percussion picks up and neuro bass fills start flooding in, Sully unleashes his signature serrating synths and melodic bassline motif to create a head-spinning contagion.
Sully may be new to many, but he is no stranger to the electronic music scene. He’s spent the last year pioneering and sharpening his own sound design at Icon Collective, the same school where artists like Jauz and NGHTMRE got their start. Because he hasn’t released any new music in almost two years, Sully is sitting on more unreleased music than ever, Sully is ready to reveal his new project, a culmination of nearly two years of hard work and dedication.
