It’s time to take a trip to the dark side court of Acrillics and Zeal‘s fiery new collaboration, “Subzero.”
Calling FUXWITHIT Records it’s home, these blossoming bass enthusiasts have managed to fuse together the worlds of trap and drum’n’bass into one ominous ball of energy that is one wild rollercoaster ride of a listening experience.
“Acrillics started this one, they brought a super solid foundation of a track that I was so stoked to work on. They absolutely nail the trap feel to it. I came in & put my ideas down on the DnB section. It came together quite quickly. Went for a more techy feel on this one since it had a more dark & ominous atmosphere. We had a different intro to start the track when we thought it was done. I went back into the project one day & decided the intro could be a bit more intricate & laid down a bit more of a hip-hop feel to it to give emphasis to the genre crossovers being a big part of the track. The part that gave the most grief was the transition from DnB to their iconic trap drop. I spent quite a few sessions ironing that part out but once I nailed it down it truly might be one of my favorite parts of the tune!” Zeal explains.
Acrillics adds, “The dark & ominous atmosphere of the track reminded us of a kind of frozen feeling – Try to imagine a frozen wasteland, where icebergs and ice shelves are moving at high speed smashing into each other, creating this mass movement in a frozen space. That’s how we feel about the title and how it embodies the music, which is both ominous but fast-paced as well.”
