Dead End slips into soupy halftime on beat-driven bass tune, ‘Room Full Of Smoke’ [Premiere]
For any artist who finds themself at a fork in the road, best to take a page from underground bass phenom Dead End. This beat-driven bass producer has been carving out his own path and, much to the contradiction of his artist alias, he’s hit nothing but open roads. Mapping out new sonic terrains and freeing one’s self up to new styles ought to be what every artist strives for, after all.
After securing a number of releases lately, Dead End now returns to Saturate Records with a wonky new album, titled Kino Vol 1, what he’s calling a “beat tape.” The LP is out in full on Bandcamp, but he’s still in the midst of wide releasing the full project on all other platforms. CE is honored to be part of the project with an official premiere of his newest single, “Room Full of Smoke.”
The short, but supremely smooth track is a wonky ride through slivery sub-bass, soupy halftime, and off-kilter production, with some hip-hop sampling and jungle flavors mixed into the timeline. The real payoff comes at the song’s cataclysmic drops, which will surely get listeners moving low and slow to the ground with some incredible bass face.
Speaking to how the mixtape/album came together, Dead End says the 14-tracker was inspired by the silver screen and a nod to some of his favorite films.
“Room Full Of Smoke” marks the eighth track to see its wide release on Dead End’s debut LP. Stream the track below, or listen/purchase the full project on Saturate Records’ Bandcamp.
