Deep within the weirdness of Victoria, BC producers are putting out sounds that are absolutely blowing everyone away. Something about this island, paired with the incredible talent that resides here, sets the stage for ultimate bass. This track, from local heavyweight Pigeon Hole, and one of the artists of the moment to keep your eye on, the young Strange Thing is no exception. Their collaboration Nite Owl just dropped on MalLabel Music. If you’re familiar with either artist, you know their penchant for versatility. Pigeon Hole is a two headed monster, serving banger after banger and lighting up festivals across the world, with live sets and wild on stage antics. Our man Strange Thing is a new comer to the game, but quickly establishing himself as a force to reckon with in the island scene, and beyond. 2017 is going to be the year you take notice, mark our words. The tune starts off slow, making you invested and pumped up, with a gradual build up that drops down into some absolute filth. The concept of bass music gets passed around a lot, and it’s hard to define most times, but this is a tune that encapsulates the true essence of the genre. Warping bass lines, making you want to strut and dance at the same time, if that’s even possible. The track goes on to get even heavier, but near the half way mark it breaks down into the straight, low end bass you’ve been waiting for, pulling the track together and keeping you bobbing from start to finish. Watch out because I have a feeling this one’s going to be a festival staple this summer. You can buy Nite Owl here! What do you think of this collaboration?
