Philadelphia-based star and bass music aficionado,5 & A Dime returns with his latest stomper ‘Make Em Bounce’. Teaming up with PEEKABOO for the release, ‘Make Em Bounce’ is out now exclusively as a free download via 5 & A Dime’s SoundCloud.
Kicking off with a jaw-dropping wiry bassline, ‘Make Em Bounce’ quickly elevates into a bass trap anthem. Weaving between minimalistic breakdownsconsisting of sporadic synths, vocal chops and the restless boomingbassline, and elevated intense drops, 5 & A Dime and PEEKABOO have utilized a plethora of percussion, trap-style trills and scratch-style synths in ‘Make Em Bounce’ to create maximum dramatic effect. A new direction in the bass music realm for the budding producer, whose previous releases were predominantly in the dubstep or bass house genres, 5 & A Dime comments on how the track came to light:
“It was a super fun time with PEEKABOO collaborating on Make ‘Em Bounce – and it came together so quickly, the track just flowed together in no time! We set out with a goal to blend both our heavy, aggressive sounds while also pushing the envelope further to something neither of us have made before.The distorted 808 was a turning point in the production process and after putting that in the drop everything else came together perfectly.”
Jumping into the bass music scene in 2010 with his highly popular mash-up series, 5 & A Dime had a quick rise to fame, resulting in extensive tour support for the likes of musical heavyweights, Steve Aoki and Kendrick Lamar. Past releases have garnered the artistpraise from both superstar DJs, and industry top dogs alike. Tiesto, BBC Radio 1, DJ Snake, Diplo and Friends, and The Chainsmokers are just some of the industry’s finest that have supported 5 & A Dime’s music. After a short break from releasing, with his last track nearinga year old, 5 & A Dime is undoubtedly back and pulling out all the stops with this latest release; ‘Make ‘Em Bounce’ is a stellar return for this talented producer.
