We could talk for days about Gammatoid Swiftblade, an American Dubstep artist that kicks off 2019 with a brand new 4-track material entitled ‘N/A’. With over 5 years experience in music production, he’s already a true master of the wub-wub bass. To the surprise of many, his debut EP is literally impressive and highly experimental. Inspired by the atomic energy era and the nuclear fear of the 60s, he wants to rewrite the past in order to redefine his sound. Dubstep doesn’t have to be repetitive, on the contrary, he makes sure everything flows in a dynamic way. Clearly, he revolutionizes how music is made these days by incorporating innovative SFX but also retro 8-bit synths, blending the old with the new. On a side note, in just the first week, ‘N/A’ hit 31K streams at global level (reaching more than 40 countries). Discover my first impressions by reading this exclusive track-by-track review below.
1 – Atomic From the outset, he takes us to a plethora of unique sounds. Creatively, he uses vintage samples that recall the concerns of a nuclear war. With a touch of retrofuturism, the rockish beats imply we’re talking about loud and aggressive Dubstep.
2 – Trance Somehow, the beautiful female vocals ease the sense of tension that evokes this track. In my opinion, it portrays a nice contrast. Apart from this, the chiptune-esque sounds will reverberate in your ears noting a high timbre.
3 – Alone I love the intro, it feels majestic due to the saxophone solo, which will keep us hooked right to the end. Also, a hypnotic tick-tock rhythm gives it a special touch prior to its wub-filled explosion.
4 – N/A Trust me, despite its the final number, the energy seems to never slow down. Here Gammatoid Swiftblade will make your heart pump very hard with its monstrous drops. Once again, his love for 80s Nintendo or Atari console games come into its own through some extra sick beats. Enjoy it!

GLD Debut On Carnage’s Heavyweight, A Blend Of Downtempo, Glitch & Bass
DJ and producing duo GLD just dropped their latest track “Judgement Day” a genre-bending single for the most intense bass heads out there. It delivers menacing, wobbling basslines and serrating synths in a relentless tempo, which GLD expertly layers with distorted vocal riffs that further add to the frenzied mood. Listeners suddenly understand the track’s name when a church organ ominously appears in the interlude, evoking images of sacrilegious acts and a fiery underworld. “Judgement Day” is out on Carnage’s Heavyweight Records, and GLD joins the ranks of GRAVEDGR, Sludge, GOMMI and more as part of Carnage’s epic crew of cronies.
Friends Mattie and Jake founded their project GLD with a desire to change what it means to make and perform music and to improve the world with the messages spread through their art. GLD’s mantra is that music doesn’t need to fit in a genre box, and their style draws influences from energized punk and jazz and blends it with powerhouse electronic music. Their unique and intense style has earned them support from heavyweights like Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, Flosstradamus, Excision, and NGHTMRE. GLD continues to expand upon their production prowess with every release, and we can’t wait to see where the rest of this year takes them!

Sludge Channels His Ancestry For Debut EP, ‘The Serbian Monster’
It’s been a while since the world has heard from Sludge, the sinister producer who first made his appearance on Carnage’s Heavyweight Records last year with “Blacksmith.” He’s been hard at work on a new project that reflects a darker persona than ever – ‘The Serbian Monster’ EP. The release features four brand new tracks of his signature raw and industrial sound, all of which thematically tell the story of his cultural heritage. From listening to the stabbing basslines and ear-splitting synths of “The Feast” to the “Prepare to Die” vocal riffs of the EP’s title track “The Serbian Monster.” With the relentless mechanical reverberations of “Kill Them,” Sludge transports the listeners right into his family’s escape from Yugoslavia during the Yugoslav Wars to the US. “End Game” depicts a dark but victorious closing to the saga, which exemplifies Sludge’s more mature but equally heavy sound on the new EP. As seen on the video for “Blacksmith,” Sludge’s upbringing continues to be an inspiration for his music.
Iconic DJ and producer Carnage founded his label Heavyweight Records in 2017 as a home for hard bass and hip-hop music. Since then, the Las Vegas-based artist has gathered a formidable crew of cronies on the imprint, from the masked mastermind GRAVEDGR, Melbourne Bounce frontrunner Will Sparks, trippy up-and-comer GOMMI, and the sinister and dangerous Sludge. Sludge joined their prestigious ranks as a debutant with “Blacksmith” in 2019 being his first release (now having amassed 3M streams on Spotify) and “Emergency” and “Crush ‘Em” as his follow-ups, which set the stage for him to become one of the label’s premier acts going forward. ‘The Serbian Monster’ is a promising sophomore EP, sending the message that Sludge is far from over being bitter about his country’s demise during the Cold War. Follow Carnage, Heavyweight Records, Sludge, and the rest of the gang for more sinister sounds.

Featuring some of the most insane basslines and serrating synths known to humankind, this track has already been dominating the dubstep scene thanks to support from heavyweights Excision, Carnage, NGHTMRE, Svdden Death, ATLiens, and more.

One thing is for certain – with the festival season beginning at the close of this month, you can expect to hear “Womp Womp” at bass stages everywhere from Miami to Vegas and beyond.
Orlando-based DJ RATED R is known to his friends simply as “Frankie,” but he’s about to become one of the most talked-about names in electronic music. “Womp Womp” is putting RATED R firmly on the map, though he’s already performed as direct support for artists like GTA, ATLiens, and Megladon, making his live debut at WMC in Miami. His love of music began with playing the drums, which can still be heard in the prominent kickdrums of his bass music. Teaming up with RATED R is Daniel Pacheco – better known as VRG–who has been making music since he was only 11 years old. VRG first found his calling in the Jersey Club scene with his Re-VIP to Boombox Cartel’s “Jefe VIP,” which has been played out by some of the world’s most renowned DJs. He has since expanded his prowess to include many other electronic genres, VRG has gained the support & likes of artists such as 4B, Carnage, Zomboy, Boombox Cartel, and many more.
