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.
Matt DeSumma may not be a name known to many outside of the upper east coast’s burgeoning underground bass scene. That’s precisely why the unassuming bass music producer is someone who has set off CE’s radar. Running around his New Jersey stomping grounds as Cyber G, he’s just wrapped his very first 12-city nationwide Deep Space tour. Now, DeSumma has just laid down four brand new tracks for his debut Invaded EP, aptly named for it’s heavily spaced bass aesthetic.
Cyber G is premiering the EP’s final single, “MF G,” on Conscious Electronic to round out the four-track effort. He’s been releasing new tracks all month long to reveal a new part of the EP’s story, which has shaped out as a relentless spaceship ride into the lower rungs of heavy, free-form bass. “MF G” is our favorite track on the album because it drips of Bassnectar, whereby heavy elements are finely balanced between crisp highs and velvety sub-bass. How fitting considering DeSumma reckons himself a fan of not just Bassnectar’s sound, but his entire movement.
“Since I first got into bass music, I’ve had endless love for Bassnectar,” Cyber G told us. “The live sets he creates on top of albums like Divergent Spectrum really drew me in. The energy, community, and music equally inspire me.”
On the Invasion EP, Cyber G takes listeners into heavy space bass territory, yet he maintains a silky subdued atmosphere that coerces listeners into riding his low-end bass lines all the way to the bank. Mind-warpingly psychedelic on the one hand, yet every bit as menacing and threateningly fun, the entire EP is a complete home run.
“Invaded is actually the first EP I have ever created,” continues DeSumma. “I wanted to keep a cohesive theme and showcase my heavy-hitting space bass. I am so happy the way it turned out. I never would have thought this soon into my musical journey I would be able to create something like this.”
As for future collaborations, Cuber G is sitting on a couple of tunes with artists like Wolf-e-Wolf, GDubz, and more amazing producers, but that’s keeping kept under wraps for now.
