Electronic bass artists are no strangers to hip hop as many would think, but most bass tracks have hip hop inspired beat work, and many use the genres lyricism in buildups and breaks. Plenty electronic music artists crossed these thresholds like Flume, Zeds Dead, Skrillex and even Daft Punk. Kyral x Banko, having worked with SoDown and Def3 on a hip hop inspired track, have the ear to work diverse sounds. They do it again on a recent collaboration with Nat Nat called ELEVATE, this time focusing more on the lyrical aspect of the track. Nat Nat rhymes smoothly over a lo-fi beat, and creates the right atmosphere to just sit back and vibe out.
The Chicago native bass duo Kyral x Banko team up with Kromuh on their latest release. Late February introduced us to MR. PROBLEMATIC, and sure enough things got seriously problematic. While Kyral x Banko and Kromuh did not foreshadow our lock down situations, at least they prepared us with great music for the quarantine playlist. Great follow up to their track COME CORRECT with chonk, another release on a 40oz Collective, always coming in with fresh sounds for your dubstep and bass cravings.
When you put two dope Chicago artists together you get gold and these two got stacks of them! Kyral x Banko have been pumping out their arsenal of bass little by little and each one gets better everytime; they all sound like anthems. Their dub-plates are heavy and clean with beat patterns and hooks influenced by hip hop and trap bass. A good composition of sound to represent their city which is raw, authentic and in your face. With some heavy Colorado roots the two have been all up and down Chicago and Denver spreading some good music and good energy.
Just to highlight a few of their releases since the start of the year we have Gold released as apart of an artist compilation EP called Alchemy, a slow but energetic track building up to their drop phrase Im Gettin Paid Bitchwhere a whole bunch of frequencies on the low end hit you. Following you got Rambo by So Down who featured Kyral x Banko and Def3 for a hip hop beat to tell it how it is. Most recently the duo released Stacks on Plenum Records with a few hooks to build up to a bass drop that hits you with the high end synths low bass and wild beat patterns ready for their adrenaline hungry fans at their next events in Colorado and adding Iowa to that list too! If you cannot catch them live follow their uploads, they hit the spot every time.
From Chicago Kyral x Banko been known amongst locals for their impressive bass anthems and remixes contributing to wild nights at Trap House and Porn & Chicken events. Riding under the Quality Goods banner following their Plenum Records and independent releases they have been gaining recognition nationally. Sharing stages with the likes of UZ, LOUDPVCK, Vic Mensa, Figure, Cookie Monsta and more, the duo established their name suddenly after landing opening slot for a sold out Flux Pavilion show for their first performance. With hard work and dedication the two capitalize on the opportunity and kept the momentum going.
Before Kyral x Banko, Collin Burdick and Bennet Kohler went to college together where they graduated chemistry and advertising; an essential key to getting their brand name out there through blogs and other sources. Just sharpening their DJ and production skills working on hip-hop beats originally, it has grown into complex layers of bass, synths, high hats and beat work. 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.
Joining the many artists following What So Not’s Stranger Things Remix teaser Kyral and Banko from the city of Chi are amongst the few to stand out. Doing a really good job at splicing in dialogue from series and keeping the flow of the song, the two remake this smooth melody in to a elbow raising trap beat. You can own that one for free. This generous duo is offering up another track for free for you to blast out loud. Want It comes to you through Plenum Records earlier this week. You most definitely want this in your playlist.
Bouncing between tracks like Stranger Flip with a smooth melody and a raw beat like Want It, you can get a crowd hooked between the rises and falls characterized in these tracks. Catch these guys do their thing live opening up for Zeds Dead at Reaction NYE party in Rosemont Il, near Chicago and mid December in Denver at the Larimar Lounge. With an EP coming up early 2017, you can expect to hear some madness unreleased. New music riding under the trap King UZ‘s banner Quality Good Records, these should be head rocking beats.
