We’ve got one for the bassheads today: a fresh tune from ADIIDAS via WAKAAN. The producer, who has been making head-banging beats for years, has caught the eye of the trailblazing bass label. “Encounters” is part of his EP Ice Cold, and it’s a dark, sample-laden banger.
The song sounds like you’re being abducted by aliens and taken to a different planet to listen to their mixtape. It’s a static and snare-filled tune, with a slow and swaying, yet relentless bassline. There’s a little breakdown in the middle that is refreshing and surprising, and then it’s right back to the wubs. This is one that OG WAKAAN fans are going to love.
Here is what ADIIDAS had to say about creating this new EP:
After suddenly gaining an abundance of free time during the quarantine I knew it was the perfect opportunity to put everything I had into growing and advancing my sound. “Ice Cold” refers to a new refreshing take on my already dark and bouncy style. From this idea grew a project I created with close friends and the collaborations of like-minded artists and it eventually became ‘Ice Cold’.
While we wait for the intergalactic album to drop Friday, January 29, we’re giving you an exclusive listen to “Encounters” below. Enjoy!
