Heavyweight Records Releases Six Heavy-Hitting New Tracks via “Lockdown” EP, Selected During Live Demo Listening Sessions on Twitch
Artists: Various Artists
Title: Lockdown EP
Label: Heavyweight Records
Release date: July 24, 2020
Carnage’s Heavyweight Records camp has just released their brand new “Lockdown” EP, filled with top-notch fresh bass music curated entirely during live demo sessions on Twitch. The six-track EP runs the gamut of bass music, from 2AM & Elusion’s bone-shaking, menacing “Down” to the rapid-fire snares of Fito Silva’s “Indian Riddim” and Steez’s mechanical, synth-driven “To The Face.” Rounding out the second half of the EP, “Hit a Lick” delivers hip-hop influenced bass by Freaky x Hay!, Elle’s “Ah Shit” presents as one of the more melodic tracks but quickly shows its darker side. Zoobstool’s “Block Huggaz” makes for a heavy-hitting, apocalyptic finale fitting of the current state of the world. The Heavyweight team selected all six tracks for the release while livestreaming the demo sessions on Twitch; listeners could comment about which tracks they liked best, bringing a creative new way for a record label to connect with fans when current circumstances have live shows on hold. Tune into the “Lockdown” EP to bring Heavyweight into your home!
