Label: Gold Whistle
Release date: May 20th, 2014
Catalog number: GW021
In the beginning there was a dark n’ sweaty rave cave & in that rave cave the bass was pumping, bodies were gyrating and there was an undeniable urge to lick ya boom boom down! We remember that rave & Philadelphia’s Dev79 conjures that bass on his debut Gold Whistle EP “Boom Boom Down.” Here he takes his signature street bass sound and turns it to 11 with some heavy club appeal, taking nods from hardcore and juke music.
“Boom Boom Down” is a high energy, heavy bass, juke influenced rave banger. Complete w/ a trap breakdown that will have you feeling like a cup of lean. “Thunk About It” is a rowdy club tune w/ trap nods & hardcore vocal leads turnt up. Dave Luxe provides a brilliant Chill-Trap remix of “Boom Boom Down” that’ll surely have a baby in a stranger by the end of the night. Tanner Caldwell’s “Boom Boom Down” remix is a Jersey Club smash that’ll have the club rocking’ their hips & swayin’ to the beat. Closing it out, Max Klaw takes us on a bass driven downtempo cinematic journey to a ketamine induced mirage.
“I wanted to make something for the late night, eyes bugged out, booties droppin low, fists in the air crowd. I like raw beats with patois and sludge, that make you smile and grit your teeth at the same time.” – Dev79
