WAKAAN is to release the slamming ‘Baked’ EP from creative bass talent Krischvn on March 27th. With past sounds landing through the likes of NSD: Black Label and Quality Goods Records, he has put together a set of different edits for this collection.
He reveals: “You know what’s crazy? When I titled it ‘Baked’ I had no idea that Americans used this term as getting high. I first imagined baking something in an oven, or like when your brain is just so fried from life. “ The original ‘Baked’ comes first on the EP and is richly percussive – all menacing drum kicks and progressing tempo before its low-surging dubstep drop.
Next up is the appropriately titled ‘Second Baked,’ which again starts steady before hitting the mark with sharp claps and shattering smacks of melody. ‘Over Baked’ is a more refined edit, putting focus on its repeated riffs and scratchy bassline. Lastly comes ‘Stop Getting Baked.’ A deep, rolling beat and chopped up rhythms are complemented by vocal hits and wonky, chattering riffs.
Krischvn goes on to add: “The final product is 4 ‘Baked’s which each have 4 drops. I found a happy medium in finalizing each track and am so happy to finally give this the light of day. There are still 3 other completed versions that I have that may never see the light of day. Well it’s 2020 now, so let’s get Baked.”
released March 27, 2020
'Baked EP' is available Friday March 27 via WAKAAN
One of the few albums that every track makes my hair stand on edge. Constant arousal of drums and heavy bass lines, while keeping a melodic atmosphere, puts this out there amongst the best bass albums to exist. Consummately written. Perfect. NarBonezz
