[Bass] STUCA – Resurgence EP

The Southern California bass prodigy STUCA has begun the year in stellar stride thanks to his 3-track Resurgence EP. Released on Kannibalen Records, the project further establishes STUCA as one of bass music’s most promising producers who aren’t afraid to showcase a diversified palate.

“Sabre” was the lead single from the EP and starts off the project with an explosive barrage of bass that focuses a bit more on sound design and vibe rather than melodic structures. It makes for a whopping headbanger-friendly record that has proven itself as a success on dancefloors since early 2023. “Get Down” sees STUCA take on breakbeat for an even more dance-friendly tune. Closing out Resurgence is the hybrid heater “WKA” that just might be the favorite for us here in the dojo. They’re all fire though, so enjoy!
