Translation delves into the deeper, darker, and more exploratory side of drum & bass with the next installment of the Bassment Beats series featuring a new team of artists who share the same passion for testing the boundaries of the 170 BPM spectrum. Akinsa opens things up with Ichizoku Clan, a shadowy excursion into the dungeon with a fierce mid-bass and a cavernous kick echoing deep into the uncharted. Up next, Fuj gets heavy with Tumbler, unleashing a hypnotic storm of bass and booming industrial drums with a tribalistic edge. Switching into more abstract and experimental territory with Coplanar, Mark Kloud weaves ethereal pads, surging basslines, and crushed breaks into sonic patchwork of beauty and chaos. Broken Promise continues the intrepid, futuristic vibe with Blade, whose snarling mid-bass cuts in and out of snappy breakbeats and shattering FX. Translation founder RogueState ushers in the finale with Origins whose serene pads and staggered drums build into an ominous slow burner.
