ZEKE BEATS And Jantsen Link Up On Zany Dubstep Banger “BABABASS”

Los Angeles-based ZEKE BEATS and Denver’s Jantsen are titans in the bass scene.

While the former is renowned for his hip-hop-inspired take on bass music, the latter has been destroying the scene with heady, hard-hitting dubstep. The pair join forces and return to Bassrush Records with the beastly anthem “BABABASS.”

Channeling their collective power, “BABABASS” blurs the lines between devastating dubstep and enthralling experimental bass, and harnesses an underlying festival-ready energy in the process. The introduction offers an inviting yet uncertain pull that is beefed up with a distinct hip-hop feel. Sirens give way to hypnotic synths that are enhanced with the snappy trap percussion. As the stuttered vocals are chopped and looped with precision, the pair take the energy to a peak before unloading the booming onslaught. Ping-ponging synth riffs, trippy bleep tones, mind-twisting undertones, and the filthy call-and-response of the rapid-fire leads flex the pair’s unrivaled sound design skills while chest-rattling low-end pushes speakers to the max. Never stagnating, “BABABASS” continues its metamorphosis through tension-building breaks and a massive retooled finale.

The artists reflect on their chemistry and how the track came together, saying, “We had such a blast collaborating on ‘Everybody’ that it didn’t take long for us to hop on another project together soon after. Our blend of cheek and bass music has led to another fun, bass-heavy anthem.”

Los Angeles-based producer and turntablist ZEKE BEATS has become an icon in the bass music scene with a style that blends his affinity for analog gear with hip-hop and grime influences. He has a longstanding history with the Bassrush crew, with his synapse-twisting single “Bounce” serving as one of its earliest signings way back in 2016. He then graced the label two years down the line with his “Mind” collaboration alongside Dirty Audio entering the fray in 2018. His work has gained support from Alison Wonderland, Zeds Dead, Noisia, Liquid Stranger, Excision, NGHTMRE, SLANDER, and more. ZEKE BEATS is hot off of his nationwide ‘Self-Sabotage’ Tour and will be joining Liquid Stranger on his ‘Expansion’ Tour stops in Nashville & Kansas City.

Jantsen is a Denver-based producer who has risen to become a household name on the bass circuit. He debuted on the label with “In The Dance” alongside Conrank in 2020, which drew press support from Heard It Here First, Magnetic Magazine, The DJ List, and The Music Essentials. He has an upcoming debut back-to-back set with Champagne Drip at Webster Hall, and previously hosted his nationwide co-headline ‘Full Circle’ Tour with Dirt Monkey in 2023.

Hard-hitting, forward-thinking, and anthemic, “BABABASS” is an instant festival banger that showcases why ZEKE BEATS and Jantsen remain at the forefront of the bass scene.

ZEKE BEATS and Jantsen’s new single “BABABASS” is available on all platforms via Bassrush Records.
