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 shine a light onto the rising producers who’re honing their craft, galvanizing their movements, and attuning eyes, ears, heads, and bodies into all things low end.
BroMosapien may be known to bass music fanatics in the niche underground of Charlotte, North Carolina, but the project of Andy Underwood is still unbeknownst to many in the growing world of heavy, experimental bass. The show he puts on consists of dubstep, neuro bass, hybrid trap, all the way to drum-n-bass, while spicing it up with a hip-hop feel. He’s released with underground bass imprints Morflo Records, Aspire Higher, Tuff Collective, and THE NEST and has noteworthy collaborations with plenty of rising bass artists we love to see, including Engix, Scales, and illanthropy.
After premiering “Act Up” with The Untz last week, with its liberal usage of the Amen Break, Underwood now releases his brand new EP, Fallen Kingdom. On the four-track project, BroMosapien delivers a hefty dosage of DnB and hip-hop flavored beats all wrapped up in heavy sub-bass, melodic touches, and gritty goodness. From the EP’s opening track, “Vibrate,” with it’s expansive builds, brash undertones, and unruly grit; to “We Poppin,” with it’s warbly highs, spaced-out synths, and undulating drops; to the project’s heavy title track, “Fallen Kingdom,” the entire EP is showdown of the amorphous-leaning heavy bass that we’ve come to love here at CE.
The EP is precisely why BroMosapien makes for the perfect artist in our Rising Bass Spotlight. Fallen Kingdom is a project that’s embedded with unrelenting bass, intuitive production, and an effortless, yet meticulously crafted display of immersive bass sounds. This is one Rising Bass Arist that should be on everyone’s docket of up-and-comers. If nothing else, it makes a heavy case for BroMosapien as a serious artist who knows how to let go and let the music take control.
