You’d be hard pressed to find a subset of dance music that’s had a more meteoric rise over the last five years than bass music. For the uninitiated, that overarching term covers the holy trinity of the Bassrush brand: dubstep, trap and drum & bass. Since we dove deep into DnB back in our November episode, we decided to flex those trap arms and ride the rail for the first episode of 2019. Living legend 12th Planet and Hard Trap Godfather SAYMYNAME are our guests, and Bassrush head Tony Merino stops by the studio to chop up the current state of bass music, drop some names on the hitters that are currently defining the genre, and what’s next for Bassrush in 2019.
