Philadelphia-based star and bass music aficionado, 5 & A Dime returns with his latest stomper Make Em Bounce. Teaming up with PEEKABOO for the release, Make Em Bounce is out now exclusively as a free download.
Kicking off with a jaw-dropping wiry bassline, Make Em Bounce quickly elevates into a bass trap anthem. Weaving between minimalistic breakdowns consisting of sporadic synths, vocal chops and the restless booming bassline, and elevated intense drops, 5 & A Dime and PEEKABOO have utilized a plethora of percussion, trap-style trills and scratch-style synths in Make Em Bounce to create maximum dramatic effect.
A new direction in the bass music realm for the budding producer, whose previous releases were predominantly in the dubstep or bass house genres, 5 & A Dime comments on how the track came to light: “It was a super fun time with PEEKABOO collaborating on Make ‘Em Bounce – and it came together so quickly, the track just flowed together in no time! We set out with a goal to blend both our heavy, aggressive sounds while also pushing the envelope further to something neither of us have made before. The distorted 808 was a turning point in the production process and after putting that in the drop everything else came together perfectly.”
