Xakra and Klippee deliver the pressure with “Squad Car” via Sublimate Records
When I think of up and coming artists in the Pacific Northwest, two names instantly come to mind: Seattle-based producers Xakra and Klippee have both been making waves all across the bass music spectrum lately, with huge releases on Encrypted Audio and Lifestyle Music respectively, big shows from The Black Box in Denver all the way to the UK, and massive support on their tunes from the likes of Noisia, Hyroglifics, Khiva, and many more. While Chase Transeth AKA Klippee tends to find himself in the drum and bass and uptempo beat music domain, Xakra can be found in the swamps of 140 bpm and anything dubstep-adjacent, and the latter is where today’s premiere lies. A clear nod to the classic wobble of pre-2010 Tempa and Deep Medi Records era dubstep with a modern twist, “Squad Car” is a shining example of why the 140 scene is alive and well in 2020. Check it out below, and be sure to cop the full release on February 7th when it drops on BnC favorite Sublimate Records.
