We’ve got another awesome tune out from Monstercat recently, this one from the bass heavyweight Crankdat, aka Christian Smith. In his new single “Dark Room,” Smith employs a wide array of sounds and production tricks to create a tune that interlaces his heavy bass with bright and uplifting synths.
The track quickly builds up, dropping into dazzling synths and heavy hitting drums, of course leaving room for those gritty bass sounds. We get a nice breakdown in the middle, with some distorted vocals building right back into a different drop the second time around. This track demonstrates some careful, balanced sound design, from the dynamic synths to the bass sounds layered underneath. Props to Crankdat for a unique and energetic track. Check it out in the stream below. Enjoy!
