MAG revealed their new single late last week, a massive future bass remix of “Pause” by vocalist Avery Shyra. Formerly known as Mizer and Goetz, MAG has an arsenal of future bass tracks in their discography that truly contribute to the standard of excellence we all know can be achieved with this genre of music. The market for future bass is becoming saturated with cookie-cutter tracks that sound just like the next as the genre continues to grow, so it is always a pleasure to come across artists like MAG who can put out genuinely unique productions and an awesome display of musicality.
The tune starts off with Shyra's swagger-inducing vocals gliding atop muffled synths and triplet-based marimba patterns. The beat that drives it all features a crisp and clean 808 that completely fills up the space throughout the tune without compromising the ambience and melodic beauty of the production. The drop is filled with cinematic hits and modulated supersaws that fully immerse you in the future bass experience…..and it only gets better as the song goes on. The release of the second drop layers back into Shyra's chopped and screwed vocals backed by a fat sub bass before the outro.
“Pause” was the first release from MAG in roughly 10 months, and we are thankful the wait is finally over. The Denver-based duo has set the standard high with their first release of 2017, so we can hope to see some big things from them later this year.
