SubCarbon newcomer IntiKon gets experimental on heady bass track, ‘Higher Self’
As a newcomer to Ganja White Night’s SubCarbon Records, IntiKon is making waves with wonky and groovy bass. The fresh-face producer has some rather large shoes to fill in the company of label mates like Dirt Monkey, SubDocta, Boogie T, and countless more. To make his case for belonging on the imprint, IntiKon partners up with Viskus on their new and highly-experimental collaborative track, “Higher Self.” Together, the pair embrace a wholly unexplored side of dubstep that has yet to be fully excavated.
“Higher Self” isn’t your typical dubstep or bass track, although it still brings the heat in its own original way while holding close to classic dubstep elements. It’s not a headbanging track to be sure, but it is glitchy, dripping with low tempo riddim beats and break beat percussion elements. Laced with heady vocal samples to guide listeners along the way, the production marks IntiKon’s and Viskus’ place in the ballooning world of dubstep, which has been making its way back into the dance music mainstream for some time now.
While IntiKon is new to the Subcarbon family, that hasn’t stopped the promising young talent from carving out his place within the niche bass community. Track partner Viskus came onto the scene as one-half of Psyntimental before rebranding to Viskus with success. The two prove to be an exceptional match-up for SubCarbon’s signature sound stamp.
