West Midlands native Jon Smith—better known by his floor-shaking, bassline menacing moniker Ponicz—has risen to fame in the bass music scene with his aggressive tunes since his start just a few short years ago. Continuing to wreak madness with his heavy style, his Technicolour masterpiece has landed on NSD: Black Label and it is massive!
The title track opens the EP up with an eerie warning that will keep you hooked right from the start. Starting things off slow and simple, the buildup showcases the signature dirty bass he does so well before the switch-up offers up a bloodthirsty rhythm that sinks its teeth into you and will no doubt leave you hungry for more.
“Turn Up” follows up with a bouncy bassline and a proper “Turn up the bass” vocal hook before things cut to the chase with an aggressive drop that carries the track to oblivion. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more destructive, “Rippin” unloads a relentless wonky bassline that brings the heat and literally annihilates anyone in its tracks straight to a pulp. To make sure the heads are satisfied, “Rowdy” closes things up with a jumpy, murky bottom end that serves up just enough grimy bass to bring on a proper face-melt.
This one is a true basshead’s dream so make sure to grab your copy of the raw Ponicz power here and get rowdy!
