At just seventeen years old, Mastadon has released his Decimate EP, and it’s one of the filthiest collections we’ve heard this year!
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Mastadon is a rising artist in the heavy bass scene. This young producer has garnered support from multiple top-tier industry heavyweights including Never Say Die labelmates Trampa and SKisM as well as others such as FuntCase and Bukez Finezt. Strapped with impeccable sound design and scrap metal bass drops dragged from the deepest pits of hell, his Decimate EP mutilates eardrums and slices spines with some of the darkest bass we’ve ever heard.
Each of Decimate‘s four tracks channels a wicked and delectably obscure energy. An almost demonic slew of bass snarls and blood-curdling chops characterize this EP, making it a bestial force to be reckoned with for even the heaviest of headbangers. Check out our review of this maniacal EP and stream or download Decimate on your favorite platform today!
Stream Mastadon – Decimate EP on Spotify:
Decimate begins with “Machete”, an absolute assassin of a track with Never Say Die’s signature shrieking frequencies.
Being the first track listed on the EP, “Machete” sets the pace with a rapid-fire assault of bass artillery. The track’s unrelentingly dark energy emulates that of a grotesque monster lurking in the shadows. With each bone-crushing bass gargle, “Machete” is a spitting hellion that is the perfect start to this collection.
The title track is hands down our favorite on the EP. “Decimate” begins with a deep vibrational siren and escalates into a Trampa-style break in the drop. The stark contrast between blistering stabs of murderous dubstep and eerie silence makes “Decimate” a beautifully vicious masterpiece. It’s one of those tunes we can’t stop replaying, reveling in its scarily precise sound design and garbled bass squawks.
Next up is “Get Ready”, but there is little that could actually prepare us for this disgustingly raw soundscape.
Aside from his abrasive thrashes of angry dubstep, Mastadon has a unique and bass face-inducing grip on sound design. “Get Ready” bursts at the seams with multiple layers of sickening frequencies and distorted bass. Decimate wraps up with “Dong”, a sexy blend of gurgling riddim bursts and an earthquake of tumultuous dubstep. Paired with rippling synth writhing violently in between bass whomps, “Dong” is the perfect finale to Mastadon’s bone-crushing EP.
