Friends and contributors of the Sine Wave gang, A3RIAL and Sleazy Lettuce have cooked up a banger. TECTONICS is a bass track run through a gargantuan and glassy, cavernous expanse. It’s synth lead growls like an angry automaton, cutting through the punchy percussion and vacuous space. With clever sampling, and an absolute mind-melting low end, TECTONICS is exactly what you need to sate your bass crave.
A3RIAL on how the track developed:
“This track started out as a bunch of ideas Matt (Sleazy) sent me (and probably forgot about) and those ideas multiplied into something resembling a full track, then we got together and Matt added some more of his wonky and unorthodox flow and instrumentation throughout. Our goal was to merge melodic elements and heavy ones as much as possible. I’m blown away by people’s reaction so far!“
“Sean (A3RIAL) and I worked on this song in his bedroom one night in early 2020, pre-covid… he had most of the song written and he just gave me a handful of stems to play with for the last drop… I love collaboration with friends, and this one came out great. It’s a banger!“
