Mayhem – Take Off (Original Mix) [Free Download]
Trap music and dubstep authority Mayhem has come through with the release of his latest single, a pounding bass gem that rounds together every reason why the Atlanta-based producer has made such a name for himself. And although his name is usually right next to Antiserum‘s on their tag-team projects, this particular solo effort needed no outside help, from friends or otherwise. “Takeoff” speaks for itself as it delivers a sizzling trap treatment, impressively blurring the lines of dance music and instrumental hip-hop even further.
Crusing between various labels, with bass music always being the key focus, Mayhem’s veteran experience is evident with his newest release via Skrong. The “Brick Squad Anthem” producer lets the music do the talking as “Takeoff” blasts thundering bass kicks and pitch-bending synth work through sharp hi-hat rolls. Dripping with swagger as swift sample cuts pipe through the tune’s stomping beat, “Takeoff” represents exactly why trap music transformed itself from faulty sub-genre to main stage ammunition. Because it goes really, really hard.
