Australia based experimental bass producer LEOTRIX, starts the year off strong with his “Round III EP” out now on Never Say Die: Black Label. A journey through genres, Leotrix gives us a look at where bass music is headed in 2021 and gifts us with some of the best music I’ve heard from the label so far this year. (lol) Taking the futuristic and funky sound he is known and loved for to new heights, each track on this EP is a masterful blend of genres and sounds coming from the mind of one of the most influential producers in the scene right now.
Featuring an epic collaboration from Black Label alumni AWEMINUS, ‘Cheque This Out’ showcases two of the most promising artists on their roster and gives them a moment to show us what the duo is capable of together. Combining elements of both artists signature sounds to create a grimey, bass-heavy track that’s sure to hypnotize. LEOTRIX shines best on his own in my opinion, when allowed to fully express himself creatively the guy is indisputably unmatched in his flow and sound design. My personal favorite track from the EP proves this point I think, ‘Endless Pain’ is without a doubt one of the best songs I’ve ever heard. Blending the best elements of everything you’ve come to expect from his sound in what can be called nothing less than a magnum opus, the track is truly a masterpiece.
