The bass music project entitled Destroid, which consists of Excision, Downlink and KJ Sawka have released their first album. ‘The Invasion’ has ten songs, with amazing collaborators like Bassnectar and Far Too Loud. However, the last song on the album is one that really caught my attention. Excision teamed up with Space Laces for an absolutely massive, bass heavy (of course), moombahcore track. “Funk Hole” not only brings the usual Excision bass, but brings a hardcore groovy mood that will cause anyone and everyone to start getting down. I have no doubt that I will be playing this one out for a long time. The range of genres in this release was a little surprise to me, but nonetheless, a good one. Make sure to check out the rest of the tracks and buy this album. You will not regret it!
Head over to Destroid’s Facebook to stay up to date on this epic project! If you are in any area that they will be performing at, then make sure to get a ticket. This project is not only musical, but visual as well. Destroid is bringing a whole new experience to audiences.

I don’t know about all of you but ‘Chop Suey!’ by System Of A Down was one of my favorite songs throughout high school, so it definitely holds a special place in my heart. Well Astrolis took this classic hard rock / metal anthem and gave it the perfect moombah touch with some catchy vocal chops and driving synths with a beat much easier to dance to compared to the original. Make sure to snag the free DL because this is most definitely a crowd pleaser!!

This one is for all you moombahcore lovers. Barrel of Monkeys are an Australian duo packing a lot of phat beats. “Step Back” is a great moombahcore track filled with filthy synths and massive sounds. From start to finish the energy they create is unmatchable. The second drop is my personal favorite. The entire track is just well produced for lack of better words. Moombahcore is a great sub-genre created and more explored with the new wave of producers around the world. This track plays around with a lot of unique sounds and creates a new appreciation for moombahton. Make sure to go check out more of Barrel of Monkeys as they are preparing to release more bangers soon.
