Tsuruda has consistently been blowing us away over the past few years. Coming a long way since his early SoundCloud days, Tsuruda is now among the most celebrated bass producers in the country, delivering innovative tracks and mind-melting performances left and right. Today, the Los Angeles-based producer shares “Head Shot,” his first original release of 2022, coming via Jadū Dala.
This tune is not to be messed with. The introduction features a vocal sample land some gritty rattling, already giving us a disconcerting vibe. A hip-hop buildup sends us quickly into some earth-shaking drums, and soon after Tsuruda lets go of the leash with an assault of heavy synths.
The progression of “Head Shot” is everything. There’s even an unexpected melodic outro during the last minute to sweeten the deal further.
