Sydney producer Hydraulix is rounding off 2019 in true style – with one, huge banger. Teaming up with label Wakaan, the pair have combined forces to deliver “Spanner,” a future beat earworm that highlights Hydraulix‘s refined and polished production skills.
This record is an upfront D&B thriller with slamming vocal chops and a brilliantly dark bassline. Able to switch seamlessly through genres with his production, Hydraulix gets energy levels to overwhelming heights with this 174BPM stomper.
He says: “I first heard jump up drum & bass in the form of DJ Hazard’s ‘Mr Happy’ in 2010. I instantly fell in love with the infectious nature of the melody and subsequently did a trap bootleg of the track in 2014 – it was the first music I’d produced that got any traction, even though DJ Hazard publicly roasted me on Twitter for remixing the track without permission…”
As is per usual with Wakaan releases, this small offering represents a forward-thinking, fun take from the frontier of freeform bass. Take a listen to Hydraulix’s “Spanner” below!
