Dubstep, Trap | AWAL Puts Bass Heavy Twist On The Trap Nation Hit “I Am The King” By James Meyers

Posted by on October 25, 2016

If you thought the feeling conveyed by James Meyers’ “I Am The King” was badass, you need to hear what LA’s own AWAL has done to it. To me, AWAL’s signature sound found within is his dark-pop flavor he adds to many of his releases: fast-paced drums, metal guitar work, and eery harmony layered, all falling at just the right time within the beat/measure to deliver an enhanced version of what the original has given us.

AWAL has handfuls of nice recognition that has come his way. He has played festivals globally, Shaq played out his track at Tomorrowland, and he’s been supported by Carnage, Chuckie, DJ BL3ND, Don Diablo, and more.

Read all the details here.

How would you describe your style?

Brian: I’d describe it as a collection of all the styles that have influenced me through out my life. It’s combination of House, Miami Bass and Hip Hop. I add the groove of house to the raw 808 miami bass sound, then work in some vocal chopping and analog 80’s synths, and out comes up the Bricks sound.

I recently discovered this French artist, and I can’t get enough. Make sure you checkout their other tunes here and give them a shout, you wont regret it: Bordo’s Music

Jack Rabbit is back and as good as ever… The third “session” of this mix series is made up of laidback electronic music that one can’t help but to nod their head to. Following his last two mixes which can be found here and here, this mix has us equally impressed and should help make the work weak more bearable… Looking forward to hearing what Jack Rabbit serves us in another two weeks.
