9. Kastle – “Strange Days”

Kastle Strange Days

Now based in Los Angeles, Kastle has long been a connoisseur of international bass music. Following his Balearic bass exploits, the producer born Barrett Richards is back with another melodic thumper in the form of “Strange Days”. While so much of bass music is often associated with testosterone-fueled excess and blistering, if not totally expected, builds and drops, Kastle is all about the character within the beats. An introverted low-end anthem, “Strange Days” borrows the soul of electronica from the likes of Underworld and then processes that vibe through a dense UK garage filter. Whether it’s 1 a.m. on a crowded dancefloor or 7 p.m. amid a frenzied study session, “Strange Days” will hit you with those feelz. Find it on the forthcoming Hyperreality EP. –Derek Staples
