OUT NOW VIA BLXCK TAPES
Midwestern producer and forward-thinking DJ Mikrodot presents his latest 4-track EP, Are U Mad, a deep, hypnotic cocktail of dub-drenched sounds. The project rides on the tail of his May-released Spacecraft EP, which landed on Northside Records. Are U Mad sees Mikrodot return to prolific dubstep label and tastemaker DUPLOC after making an impactful debut with “Lunar” on their annual compilation, DUPLOC BLXCK TAPES 3.0. Offering a platter of tasty dubstep, Are U Mad EP is out now.
Are U Mad is a powerful 4-track EP that delves deep into the dark and immersive realms of dubstep, showcasing the signature sound championed by Mikrodot and DUPLOC. Each track is a testament to both parties’ commitment to pushing boundaries and delivering raw, bass-driven music that leaves a lasting impact. “Zion” is a sonic journey through haunting atmospheres and heavy sub-bass, as pulsating rhythms intertwine with glitched-out textures. This track sets the stage for the EP’s captivating sonic experience. The second track, “Paranormal,” boasts a midtempo slice of dub-heavy goodness, heavily reminiscent of mid-2000s’ UK dubstep. The titular track combines intricate melodies with bone-rattling basslines, creating a unique sonic fusion that propels into a wonk-fueled frenzy. The adequately titled “Game Over” concludes the EP with an enchanting and mystical aura. Subtle melodies intertwine with deep, subsonic vibrations, evoking a sense of ritualistic reverence for the dubstep sound.
“To me, this EP is more than just the tunes it’s made of. It represents the fulfillment of a dream that at one time seemed unattainable. I couldn’t be more proud to have reached such a goal.”
