Psymbionic is one of those artists whose music falls perfectly within our wheelhouse. The Austin-based artist has long been determined to offer groundbreaking music with out-of-the-box sound designs. It’s a sonic template that lends itself fluidly over to his full-length studio effort, Carbon Based Lifeform, which landed earlier this year.
Now Psymbionic’s beloved 10-track album sees it’s full Remixed release, also nested under Gravitas Recordings. Carbon Based Lifeform Remixed hosts a sensational group of 12 off-kilter bass music producers who have transformed each original track into something entirely their own. With noteworthy takes from Stylust, Lucchii, Sumthin Sumthin, Prismatic, Synergy Sound, AHEE, and Psylla, bass enthusiasts will find themselves captivated through the long-ranging styles of bass presented from each remixer.
The most noteworthy additions come from two rising producers, Akosmo and sesamii, both of whom earned a spot on the remix package from winning competitions from Gravitas and Psymbionic. sesamii’s hard hitting bass frequencies individualize themselves on Psymbionic and ProbCause’s “Hypnotoad,” while Toadface also delivers an experimental sound design on the same track.
From Synergy Sound’s future bass twist to “Homesick,” to COFRESI and Akosmo’s satisfying bass punch on “Homesick,” to Megan Hamilton’s signature bubbly soundscape on “City Zero” and Psylla’s melodic dubstep recapture of “Edge of the Earth,” the entire remix album span the entire spectrum of wierd and wonderful bass music.
