Toronto is not just a hotspot for electronic dance music at large. The thriving metropolis is a swell for North American bass music. In a city filled with influential artists like REZZ, Zeds Dead, a well-established dubstep producer sits among the pack. Krilla is his name and his last body of work was released toward the latter end of 2019 with the four-track Outer Beings EP. After releasing his latest track, “Cyborg,” just before quarantine, Krilla is looking back to his recent short-form project with a special VIP treatment of the EP’s third track, “Hypnotic.”
Krilla’s VIP gives the original a heavy makeover from head to toe. Whereas the original boasted ominous tones, catchy warbles on the drops, and guttural synths, “Hyptonic” VIP plays with different beat structures, ramps up the energy on the builds, and utilizes paralyzing basslines, intense drops, and gooey releases.
As his self-proclaimed favorite on the EP, it was only a mere matter of time before Krilla revisited the track. “’Hypnotic’ is one of my all-time favorite songs that I have ever made, so it only seemed fitting to give it a brand new spin,” KRILLA explains. The result is a massive bass weapon perfectly equipped for the stage.
