Bite Me Remix Frenzy

Since debuting his sound with the 4 track Bitten EP, he has evolved into a monster of a dubstep and bass producer, quickly progressing as if this was second nature. From a friendly bat to an abstract entity fixated on delivering dark and heavy basslines, Bite Me has easily become one of the impressive heavy bass artists coming out of Chicago. On soundcloud his level of production has turned the heads of about 21.2K followers in relatively short time. Not bad for the artist whose main focus has been his production. He will no doubt share a stage hopefully soon with some big names as he connects with more and more artist through remixes and collaborations.

Following a couple of original releases Too Late and Wait For Me, Bite Me has taken on some more remixes. This time he collaborates with Pasdat on Alchemy by ATLiens and Bailo with 12th Planets Hide It All featuring Crichy Crich. These 2 follow his independent remix of Herobust Vertebreaker. Compared to his earlier work like his original Purge and Little Babylon remix these remixes have a riddim heavy presence with trap bass direction that is just madness. Bite Me surely mastered his sound and he is stirring up something big. Follow the man with us if you are as excited to find out.

Just releasing their Focus EP on Quality Goods to follow Proper you can hear how their experimental style evolved.

The four track EP starts off with mild with some harmonic synths and chopped vocals leading into a Break of heavy bass drops and siren like synths. Bend It does just that, bend genres into a fusion of bass and moombahton influence to get a dance floor bouncin. The title track rumbles through the speakers like a trap anthem to prepare you for the Matrix with Matty Did That. Concluding that with some high energy the much anticipated EP is a must have for your playlist. Check out their interview with Trapstyle so for more in depth perspective on their journey to this EP thus far and get inspired.

Hear GAWTBASS To The Top EP or Get Schooled

Coming from Illinois Graham Gawthorpe aka GAWTBASS grew up involved in music from the start. Becoming proficient in percussive instruments, guitar and the cello by 18 yrs of age before hitting that expert level and decided to teach guitar. Gawthorpe has also been apart of bands before deciding to take things a different direction. Once he got hold of electronic music he took off.

In just 3 years of producing he has hundreds of thousands of plays on his soundcloud and major record labels in his pocket. Getting much popularity remixing popular artists alongside his heavy trap singles. Early July saw the release of his debut EP To The Top. The 3 track project packs a punch but it seems like light work for this producer. The bass will rock your head off and this guy is offering what he knows. I would say take advantage of this EP and his tutoring!

Nelly Furtado, a pop icon in mid 2000’s has many hits rolling off the tongues of reminiscent fans till this day. Put her songs on a throwback playlist and you will set off any party. As many other artists have, Solstis take a shot at remixing Say It Right and they revive it. Beautifully adding synths smoothly over a bass line without drawing too much away from the original melody.

An uplifting beat following their remix of Cry Wolf by Luna Shadows and a move to Seattle from their hometown Chicago. In the wake of a decision to commit to music the duo are following up with an EP soon to come. A 9to5 can be very distracting. Meanwhile you can sit back relax and dance to this.
