Tucked in the golden crevices of SoundCloud, the latest in experimental bass has been so hot these days. It feels like the age of stellar freebies is coming back in a big way thanks to producers such as Jestic and Jon Casey. Both are well-known in the beat space for their production prowess: Jestic blurs the line between modern hip-hop and electronic with poise while Jon Casey dedicates his energy to head-splitting sound design. The two came together to honor the beginning of October for a free track that’s sure to get you moving.
“Slick” is a high-frequency firecracker suited for the dancefloor, screeching and tweaking along a menacing flow. Jestic and Jon Casey craft a fresh, ambitious ditty with precise sound design and fat bass, setting the scene with contemporary trap percussion. This one’s meant to catch a crowd by surprise in the middle of a bass-heavy DJ set, preferably in an overcrowded warehouse or after hours at a camping festival. Additionally, it’s one of those tracks that boasts some entertaining comments on SoundCloud, urging users to express their anger at just how damn good these producers are.
