bd hbt and Saint Miller team up on “Believe,” their latest collaboration. Released on November 11, Above and Below hosts this track alongside their wide repertoire of impressively heavy bass music. bd hbt and Saint Miller combine their shared talents for mind-boggling yet smooth styles of trap in “Believe.”
Recently, both artists have boasted releases on admirable record labels. This past summer, Los Angeles-based bd hbt dropped the grimy track “Cut Off” on Excision’s label, Subsidia. Most recently, bd hbt collaborated with fellow trap innovator, yojas., on a remix of “I Can” by UZ. Quality Goods Records released this energetic, droning track as part of their Trinity – The Remixes series.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Pacific Ocean, Korean-based Saint Miller unveiled the absolutely destructive track, “GANGSTER,”on BADMOUTH RECORDS. This came as part of the label’s TASTE OF BADMOUTH South Korean showcase. Not only that, but Saint Miller also released “blem.” on the notorious dumb collective.. Don’t be fooled by the name of the track or the collective; it might sound silly, but “blem.” is a big-brain trap song.
Now, bd hbt and Saint Miller join forces on “Believe.”
Although this songs begins with a gentle synth and an introspective vocal sample, it quickly introduces a heavy trap drum rhythm. A brief build up then drops into quavering frequencies and a rhythmic cacophony of energetic samples. While the first stanza of “Believe” feels like heavy bass, the second stanza strays toward riddim. The melody becomes punchy and staccato, punctuated by breaks.
An interlude that alludes back to the introduction follows this buffet of bass genre variations. Caressing, melancholic synths decorate sirens and a classic trap drum rhythm. Another dynamic build up drops into a final stanza that hails back to the first, and listeners are once again hit with an explosive bass track.
bd hbt and Saint Miller set speakers on fire with their collaboration, “Believe.” This bountiful bass banger is bound to bewitch fans of dubstep, riddim, and trap; it comes as no surprise that Above and Below would showcase “Believe.” For listeners that are aspiring – or seasoned – producers, the samples bd hbt and Saint Miller used can be purchased here. However, any other supporters can show some love starting with checking out “Believe.”
