Bassrush caught up with young gun jPhelpz to chat about his second EP, Mech Bounce, for esteemed dubstep label Firepower Records. As the title may suggest, the EP is littered with bone-crushing, rage-worthy bass. “I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and put together something that took elements from a variety of genres. Mech Bounce is a collection of music that shares a mechanical, robotic sound and bouncy vibe,” explains the artist.
The EP is comprised of four frenzied riddims: the experimental dubstep/bass-hop track “Armshouse” (featuring UK grime MC Merky Ace), “Money, Music, Fam,” “Shadow Sword” (filled with straight-forward drums and tear-out lazers), and the danceable “Trill.” Check out the robo-pressure below, available worldwide April 14.
