The intro track of the EP is none other than the fan-favorite, “Scream Saver.”
Ever since Subtronics unveiled “Scream Saver” during one of his live shows towards the end of 2019, fans have been yearning for its release. This is no surprise when you listen to the track for the first time. The way the song effortlessly builds into the heavy drop is a truly jaw-dropping moment. From there, “Scream Saver” takes the listener on a bass journey filled with vocal samples and some bounce along the way.
Next up on the EP is “Lullaby,” which brings British grime rap duo Virus Syndicate into the fray. The track begins with eerie melodic music box sounds while the rap duo begins with their quick lines and wordplay. The drop of this song is far from a real lullaby, one used to put babies to sleep, it’s hard-hitting and contains familiar synths that Subtronics fans will be familiar with.
The third track, “Discotek,” is riddim paradise. Subtronics joined forces with fellow dubstep artist Akeos and the result is a wonky, neck-breaking tune. To add to this, the beginning of the track features a vocal sample from Noho Hank from the HBO series Barry. Subtronics sure loves finding these little gems and including them in his songs!
Subtronics saved the best for last with “Blow Stuff Up.”
Rounding out this phenomenal EP is “Blow Stuff Up,” and if your necks were not already sore from the previous three tracks, this one will put you on the stretcher. It’s fine-tuned, methodically placed synths paired with loads of bass truly show that Subtronics went above and beyond on this one. He pushed the boundaries of bass music yet again not only with this final track, but with the entire EP!
