MalLabel Music straddles the dank line between science and technology this week as Ludge drops Out Here On The Internet, a rhapsodic race through bass music’s next information highways.
Rising from obscurity at a young age, the Philadelphia based producer has a sound that is raucous, futuristic and deep. Thick, lush backdrops play host to technical patterning that demonstrates a knack for sonic displays well beyond his experience.
Out Here On The Internet is a thick, nuanced EP; gritty, industrial and womp heavy. Ludge pulls no punches with the opening track Gravitron; whirring dirty two step with deep pockets and classic, layered drum patterning. Next, Out Here On The Internet picks up the pace as Ludge masterfully moves into DNB rhythms with an underlay of juicy drops and swagg sauce. Voided rounds it out deep and dirty, with waving synths, and arpeggiating hits.
With the energy of a wild boy and the refined skill of an industry pro, Ludge is a basshead through and through, and subs around North America are falling into his submission with every step.
