Antiserum and Mayhem continue their heavy trap reign with Hustle EP
While Firepower Records has been synonymous with the heavier side of dubstep as of late, Datsik‘s imprint has made the natural evolution towards trap with Antiserum and Mayhem‘s latest release, Hustle EP. The release, which includes two tracks, showcases the progress the producers have made since they began the ongoing run of collaborations. The release begins with “Cry Baby,” a track that resides comfortably in the 100bpm range, making it club-prepped from its first synth. As the name insists, the track features a chopped vocal of a sobbing child, which sits comfortably between hard hitting snares and piercing high-hats. The release follows with the title track, “Hustle,” which expresses urban influence to a greater extent than its complementary part. With an appropriate vocal drop before the bass kicks in, the track sits within the heavier landscape, even managing to throw dubstep and electro house influences in front of the 808s.
