Everyone’s favorite Ninja bass producer/DJ is back with his new EP Master Of Shadows, and we are losing our minds! A seven-track EP, with collaborations with some of the biggest bass artist in the game today. Two tracks with Virtual Riot, Excision and Dion Timmer come together to throw down with Datsik, as well as Ganja White Night and JPhelpz. All we can say is HOLY SHIT! When you get that many big name bass artist on one EP you expect nothing less but to lose your damn mind!
The first track on the album is “Warriors of the Night”, which makes sense because it was the first single released from the EP! This track features Virtual Riot, and is the perfect track to set the tone for the entire ass-kicking, ninja warrior EP! The intro to this song had us feeling like we wanted to suit up and prepare for battle!
Can we just talk about the track “Bad Behaviour” for a second. It includes some support from Ganja White Night and featuring hip-hop artist T Rabb. So obviously the track incorporates some major hip-hop influences from Ganja and T Rabb. Then bring in that dirty bass, and this track will certainly get the crowd fired up at every show, but what we loved most is the recorded phone conversation at the end when T Rabb talks about the talents that Datsik has a young producer!
Now can we get to one of our top tracks off of the Master of Shadows EP, “Find Me,” This one features bass legends Excision and Dion Timmer and is the perfect combination of chill bass and break your neck bass. “Find Me” takes a minute to build, and in the middle I caught myself saying “Dang, this isn’t as hard as I expected,” but then a voice comes across the track warning us “This shit is about to get heavier” and once that second drop comes, it’s game over!
Finally, our favorite track of the entire EP goes to “You’ve Changed.” It’s the final track on the EP and for good reason. It’s a hip-hop influenced dubstep track, and it is hype all the way. If the lyrics don’t win you over, the drops will. This song is a track that appeals to all parts of the bass world. Which is why it makes such a great closing for the Master of Shadows since the whole album is a diverse jambalaya of different styles of bass music!
From hip-hop to riddim, and some heavy ass dubstep. This EP is diverse, and star-packed with some of the biggest names in the game. To sum it all up from beginning to end it has you feeling like you could be a ninja if you wanted to. Master of Shadows stays true to Datsik, and the art he has mastered. Thus, proving himself once again as one of the best and most diverse bass producers in the game.
Not only did Datsik’s album drop today on his very own label Firepower Records, but he is also kicking off his 55+ Ninja Nation Tour today, 2018 is looking like the year of the Ninja so far, and we can not wait to see what else Datsik has in store for us this year!
