Say hello to Sydney bass operative Hydraulix.
Frequently spotted writhing in aggy, mucky badlands between dubstep, trap, halftime and hip hop, he seems just as happy knocking you sideways with gritty, rolling, rock-edged mosh-inciting thumpers as he is knocking you out with deep-assed, canyon-plunging system-melters. Don’t take our word for it though, just chow down on his last release Crown Jewels.
Released last month on Never Say Die, it runs the gully gamut from the all-out rage of Pressure (with Mayhem and riot conducting MC MACTurnUp) to the abyssal low-end licks of Flatline and contains some serious wobblers in between. It follows a whole string of releases on the like of Quality Goods, Twonk and Mad Decent and collaborations with the likes of UZ, Rickyxsan, Oski, Eliminate (to name but a few) and is a fiery statement of intent to start the new year.
