blurrd vzn and We Rose throw their weight around in their collaboration, “Big Game,” dropped on February 10. Releasing with Wubaholics, this exclusive Electric Hawk premiere is a synthesis between experimental bass and halftime.
blurrd vzn, a duo based in San Diego, California, are no strangers to collaboration. They released the PRECISION EP with MeSo and the wobbling track “Selecta” with bd hbt; “Selecta” even came out on Subsidia’s second compilation album, Dusk. blurrd vzn (below, right) travel across the state to Los Angeles and team up with another California duo, We Rose, for the otherworldly track, “Big Game.” We Rose (below, left) branch out in a slightly new direction in creating this wobbly track; they have previously produced tracks more akin to trap and leftfield bass, alongside collaborations with yojas..
“Big Game” serves up bass face for every listener.
“Big Game” opens with distorted grime vocals overlaying reverbed marimba-like sounds. Then it drops into a quavering frequency interwoven with a driving, twanging string. Short breaks interrupt this melody, sprinkling it with samples reminiscent of leftfield bass. Following the first portion is another build-up and drop consistent with the first half. However, this second portion is pitched higher than it’s parallel in the first section. blurrd vzn and We Rose have synthesized an intergalactic, wobbly track in “Big Game.”
