Vancouver B.C-based producer Perkulat0r released his much anticipated Transcension EP on Gravitas Recordings yesterday. The bass community became very familiar with the name Perkulat0r last June, when he won Minnesota‘s Starburst Redux remix contest with a stellar and unique re-imagining of the original. Since then he’s been keeping it relatively low-key, apart from a few downloads that he’s released on his Soundcloud. Where has he been? Apparently, churning out some of the most magnificently beautiful purple bass music we’ve had the chance to listen to. All the songs in this release create a cohesive whole; the tracks flow together in such a way that you won’t feel the urge to do any skipping during your listening session. It is just that good. The combination of his crisp and impossible-not-to-bob-your-head-to percussion, exceptional synthesis, and catchy melody in every single track creates a vibe that just cannot be beat. Bass music heavyweights CloZee and Dubvirus give their own renditions of Mellifluent and Transcend, respectively, to mix up the vibes a little bit in the best possible way.
Do yourself a favor and download this release. Throw a few dollars into the tip jar if you can, as Gravitas Recordings puts a lot of time and effort into their releases and it truly shows.
