Who’s ready to get blasted with bass? Mad Decent’s Valentino Khan and his buddy Kayzo just rode in on a bass of a different color. The pair’s collaboration “Novocaine” numbs your senses with a breakneck mix of hardstyle, trap, moombahton and drum’n’bass. It’s an all-out aural assault, and it’s gunning for your bum.
It’s a straightforward, rhythmic hitter, all beats and bursting bass rumbles. There’s not so much a melody to cling to as a barrage of noises and a filtered vocal sample that speaks about the only exclamation one can in the face of such brutality. It’s certainly going to be massive over the speakers at the Hollywood Paladium on March 9, when Khan takes his biggest stage to date.
“Novocaine” is out now on Mad Decent. Listen to it below.
