The last year has been a seminal one for Anglo-Russian bass music. Many of Russia’s top talents have been thrust into view, leading to a noticeable uptick in cross-continental collaboration.
Gofra Maslow, Temgri and MC Kane’s latest is a testament to the success of this phenomenon: ‘Guillotine’ is a tightly-knit bass house stomper with dissonant synth work, punchy kicks and commanding basscraft. MC Kane’s lyrics are thematically appropriate: ‘Russia to the UK/ This combination’s insane’ as well as the titular line, asserting that he will ‘Drop lyrics like a guillotine.
Showing their knack for the sinister as well as demonstrating meticulous mixing talent, Maslow and Temgri have their production stripes on full display, as well as proudly representing the gruffer sounds that Russia’s scene has become known for.
Guillotine is crushingly heavy and soaked in rave-ready energy making Yosh Pit—a label with an ever expanding arsenal of house, UKG and bass releases—a perfect home for this ambitious collaboration.
As always, you can cop and stream ‘Guillotine’ below!
