Yesterday undoubtedly marked a special day for bass music fans around the world as dubstep heavyweight Kill The Noise released his highly anticipated Black Magic EP via OWSLA. Black Magic marks Kill The Noise’s fifth EP release and as a whole this EP leaves nothing to be desired. Kill The Noise has become notorious for fusing brain-scrambling synths, haunting vocal samples, and sweltering bass representing the epitome of face-melting bass music. The EP touts seven spectacular original tracks that range from dubstep to trap to electro which indefinitely showcase Kill The Noise’s versatility as a top-notch producer.
The first track off the EP, “Black Magic,” begins with resounding chants of “Kill The Noise” which quickly breaks into a hard hitting drumstep track emphasizing the dark and grungy Kill The Noise sound we’ve grown to love. Other highlights of the EP include “Rockers” and “Jump Ya Body.” “Rockers” is a driven electro house tune filled with pulsating bass, bleeps, bloops and expertly spliced vocals and may very well be my favorite track of the EP. “Jump Ya Body” on the other hand is a more traditional dubstep track one might expect from Kill The Noise. Featuring bouncy chords, a reggae infused break and vocals from Mercedes, this track brings the heat. This EP truly is outstanding and can easily be classified as one of the best releases of the year and that’s truly saying something! Make sure give the entire EP a listen, support Kill The Noise and grab the free download of the track “Thumbs Up” which we featured here! Enjoy.
