Excision Drops Album Codename X — LISTEN HERE
By Dan Robson
Sitting at the top of his game, there aren’t many that can match the sheer ferocity that comes with being Excision. Between the unique productions and world famous live show, the Canadian has rightly so climbed towards the dominant position in the bass music scene.
Codename X (listen above) brings in a wide array of musical influences to create a fresh and welcomed sound. ‘Spaces Laces’, a production alongside Space Laces, begins with a house feel, however falls back into the sounds that we know from Excision with an aggressive drop that then flows into a trap feel groove. ‘X Up’ is an infectious tune with Dion Timmer, destined to get the Excision ‘X’ swarming the crowds on his fifty date North American Tour.
Those looking for an even heavier sound no need to worry, with ‘Shadow Flame’ playing host to a mammoth whirring synth and ‘Out Of Time’ picking up the tempo in a grime filled production that sports a brief euphoric moment in the breakdown.
Codename X dropped February 3rd through Rottun Records. Listen to the track above
