Going back in history of American dubstep many names come to mind as the OG's of bass music in the United States. Names like Skrillex, 12th Planet, and Datsik come to mind, along with many others who gave the heaviest genre in dance music a foundation in the states. Another group who has been key to the success and furtherance of dubstep in America is Terravita. Terravita's accomplishments reach from the amount of great music they've released, the size of crowds they've played to, and the establishment of the bass centered traveling festival of Safe in Sound. All in all, we are very lucky to have this group in electronic music.
Earlier this month, the group released their latest EP on Buygore records entitled The Fallen. The project features five songs of many different genres including a collaboration with fellow long time producer Bare and up and coming trap producer Riot Ten. While usually there is nothing but good to say about the group's releases, this last release was genuinely disappointing. The two songs off the album which are based in dubstep sounds are The Fallen and No Escape and feature extremely choppy synths that take away from the production quality of the tracks as well as the powerful vocals that gave the pieces so much potential. The moombahton collaboration with fellow producer Half Empty does not impress and severely lacks song structure that continues the negative theme of choppiness through the EP. The only part of the project that truly perseveres is the trap collaboration with Bare entitled Steeple, which isn't necessarily a bad song, but the fact that it is the best track off the project says a lot. The lackluster project does not fall in line with the rest of Terravita's career so we hope that the next thing we hear will really blow us away and Make Up for this. Better luck next time guys. Take a listen below and let us know what you think about the project.
