All the $kullteam soldiers out there are no doubt burning mad candles at their Kai Wachi altars tonight, as Bassrush Records and Kannibalen team up to deliver an untouchable dip into the dark side with Kai Wachi at the controls.
From the dark and deadly intro that powers its way through to a haunting and hypnotic atmosphere before delivering a heavy dubstep-infused stomp, the real magic of the aptly titled “Bodied” comes alive at the mid-tune bridge, as the melodic razor blades come out and kick down the doors into heartbreaking territory.
“I’ve just now started playing festivals frequently,” Kai Wachi tells us when asked about the inspiration behind the tune. “Seeing an ocean of people headbanging and going wild inspired me to make a track with a ‘festival feel’ to it: lots of energy in the buildup, plus a heavy drop that both I and my fans would easily vibe with.”
As for that second breathtaking drop that flips the script? “I love making emotional and deep music, so for the second half, I wanted to create a different environment in the same song, using some beautiful vocals and melodies, followed by a heavy but weirdly melodic drop.”
With the dancefloor shivers Kai Wachi delivers on this one, there’s no doubt why the likes of Excision, Bassnectar, Borgore, and so many more keep lining up for support.
