Finally, this classic Zouk Bass EP is now officially out and for sale.
This brings Zouk Bass bang up to date with a more Americanized Club Fusion style brought to you by 2 young dudes who have surprised the hell out of me with this release. After hearing this I’m sure you’re going to agree that these 2 are gonna be a force to be reckoned with.
This EP really does set the pace for what Zouk Bass is transforming into with Big Room Zouk Bass Bangers perfectly moulded for those big festival stages and raves that are taking over America right now.
Here’s what these 2 dudes say about themselves:
“We’re Two Sev and JSTJR, a tropical bass duo based out of New England. We linked up less than a month ago focused on setting ourselves apart with our own style of Zouk Bass. We’re both percussionists and find inspiration in rhythms from around the world. Our first collaboration came so naturally that we decided to throw an EP together. The release of this EP marks the first of hopefully many more collaborations, and we hope you enjoy our new breed of Zouk Bass!”
Generation Bass presents: TWO SEV X JSTJR – ZOUKOLOGY EP
Ooooh we got some scorchers this week folks. The ZOUK BASS phenomenon is taking the world by storm and Generation Bass is riding that glorious first wave like the global music surfers you know we are. With pride and glowing rosy cheeks we bring you some serious ZOUK fire by TWO SEV and JSTJR.
New York City’s finest TWO SEV has been dropping fire for some time now and brings his A game with some dark and superb produced ZOUK riddims for you to grind on. Strip club music for central Africa or the Bronx or Amsterdam’s red light district, who can tell? The bubbling, almost toneless, churpin’ synths of “Hora Da Festa 2.0” appear to be the missing link between Moombahton and ZOUK BASS. Perfect build around a thumping skeletal beat with marching snares, this is some serious music that goes well beyond a party vibe.
Boston’s JSTJR is the perfect partner on this EP. His dark, gloomy beat constructions are prefect for the slow ZOUK grind and he gives the new genre its own darker, disturbing anthem with the awesome “Badman”. Expect that sample yeah, but also detuned, gliding synth hits and some low end rumble. A love affair between the pulse of that kick drum and the bongo’s and other percussion that goes for the double tempo. The more South American flavored “Cerveja” almost sounds like a chopped & screwed Major Lazer track. Yet, it’s a buzzing, synth driven gem that would be too un-commercial for them to brand. Awesome shifting rhythms give this track an edge you have not heard before. And that’s a Generation Bass guarantee!
The two collaborate on a couple of tracks like “Rio a Lobito” with its massive buildup and drumpan sounds. Deep, hard hitting bass drums connect with a sub bass that will make your windows rattle. They pull a similar stunt with the ravey anthem “Future Zouk”, which is like the Euro House of the 90’s reconstructed in a dark basement stacked to the rafters with percussion instruments and people jamming on em. Lush and beautiful track that’s a perfect translation of this new and exciting genre to a more mainstream audience. This is Zoukology.
