SUBP YAO makes his debut on METHLAB RECORDINGS with the release of an aqueous pair of halftime tracks entitled LET ‘EM DROWN // BUBBLES. A rising name in the bass music scene, whose sets encompass a wide range of genres between 100-175 bpm, SUBP YAO has presented releases on an array of well-respected labels in the past year. These have included Saturate, Flexout Audio and Unchained Recordings, sick imprints through which he has displayed his stylistically signature warped beats. Now, SUBP YAO joins the forward-thinking musical minds at METHLAB RECORDINGS to further evolve this style, delivering twin audio sequences that expand new bounds from his founding principles.
LET ‘EM DROWN glides smoothly through its depths, carried forward by a constant flow present between bass, kick, and snare. Within its higher registers, high hats, bells, and sonorous pulses refract above the bassline, which lends a grounding influence. BUBBLES brings considerable bassweight, further amplified by the crushed and distorted kickdrum that breaks cyclically upon it, with each and every attack leaving harmonic echoes in its wake. Above these booming surges, the initially hesitant tone of an effervescent synthline is slowly transformed into a swirling sonic storm by the intensity of the beat below it, churning with energy swept from the echoes of the kick.
With LET ‘EM DROWN// BUBBLES, SUBP YAO presents a duo of powerful tracks that display his style with a heavy purity, its driving halftime basis merged with a menagerie of sonic textures in a unique synthesis of sound. Transmitted via METHLAB RECORDINGS, the sonics within can be expected to diffuse throughout the halftime scene and beyond at a rapid pace, carrying the names of both SUBP YAO & METHLAB upon their fierce current.
