SMOG Records returns with an incredible release from label head 12th Planet & Atlanta’s bass ambassador Mayhem. Whoops featuring Pennybirdrabbit / Murdaaa quickly reminds listeners why SMOG is at the forefront of the US bass music movement.
The title track Whoops features singer/songwriter Pennybirdrabbit delivering a jaw-dropping vocal treatment perfectly accompanying 12th Planet and Mayhem’s beastly production techniques. Whoops opens with foreboding synth riffs and tension-building drums as Penny’s vocals smoothly cascade down a river of emotion guiding us to the edge of tomorrow.
The flipside Murdaaa is a certified dance floor banger that premiered exclusively on THUMP, VICE’s new electronic dance music and culture channel, here. Described by 12th Planet in Billboard as a “traditional trap flip,” Murdaaa features tightly woven drums laced between rapid fire synths meticulously building up to an unexpected drop of mega proportion.
