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.
No one does it quite like Feelmonger, which is why we’re a bit frazzled that we’ve never featured the insanely talented newcomer on CE‘s Rising Bass Spotlight series. That all changes today as Feelmonger comes to Mean Mug Music to release his heavy-hitting two-tracker, Gas Giants EP. With an eye for locating heavy up-and-coming talent, Mean Mug is arguably one of our favorite bass music rosters out there, which is why CE premiered Slave and Feelmonger’s “Just Listen,” which was released as part of the former’s debut album on the imprint.
Complete with heavy-hitting hip-hop rhythms, seismic bass drops, and expansive tones, Feelmonger’s Gas Giants is a wild ride into outer space and beyond. “Gas Pedal” starts off the EP with its alien-like synths, heavy tempos and 808 kicks, verbose vocals, and drops that register at a nine on Richter scale.
Then comes in the lighthearted twinkles of “Galaxies” with Hallucinate, an uplifting space bass track designed to elevate listeners deep into the cosmos. As the track gradually builds with its spaceship synths, increasing tempos, and wild drops, listeners are taken into an expansive sonic space that represents nothing else if not a complete portal breakthrough into another dimension.
“Gas Giants was a project that I had a ton of fun writing. I got to work with two super talented humans and create two tracks that I believe reflect the range of sounds and emotions that the Feelmonger project is trying to create.”– Feelmonger
Feelmonger truly outdoes himself on Gas Giants, which is why CE is pleased to welcome him into our Rising Bass Spotlight, alongside some of underground bass music’s best and brightest players. Stream the two-track EP on Mean Mug Music now.
