I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not an expert in bass – especially it’s sub genres. So, I’m thankful to Swedish producer Albin Myers for providing such an informative piece of track art that depicts the technical anatomy of his new track Switch to rookies like me. This track is an apparent battle between UK garage bass and hoover bass, but for those of you like me who don’t really know what that means, here’s my take.
Imagine a badass version of the Energizer Bunny drumming away on his bass, unconsciously putting you into a sweet groove. When suddenly, the bunny turns and gives you a slightly-unsettling, menacing grin as if abducted by an internal, Hyde-like subconscious, turning a once bangin’ beat into an industrial, almost maniacal march to conquer all other animals. A gnarly song if I ever heard one, Myers’ “Switch” definitely drives hard, screams bass, and reminds me of conniving bunnies.
