It’s time to give those subwoofers a workout, boys and girls. West Coast bass music wizard G Jones released his new EP, Ring The Alarm, for free on Bandcamp today via SATURATE!RECORDS. As a tried and true connoisseur of West Coast future bass music, I have no problem admitting that Ring The Alarm is absolute top shelf material. Bass music really doesn’t get much better than this, and bass producers really don’t get much better than G Jones. An established master of his craft, G Jones is absolutely relentless with his new EP, rattling listeners’ eardrums and bodies with 9 brief-but-beefy bass bangers, including collaborations with Minnesota, Doshy, and Mad Zach. This one’s going to be on repeat for a while.
Each track is only a few minutes long (in fact, only two of them actually pass the 3-minute mark), but good things come in small packages. The distinguished West Coast bass sound drips throughout every second of this EP. Every kick, every clap, every horn, every synth leaves a heavy impact, and the booming bass is at once both chaotic and soothing. My personal favorite track on the EP is the Minnesota collaboration, “Orbital,” which is just more proof (if we even needed any) that these two Santa Cruz homies are the undisputed heavyweight champions of West Coast future bass music.
Check out the title track, “Ring The Alarm,” below. Then follow the download link, name your price on Bandcamp, and voila: free bass music! Also, check these tour dates to see if G Jones will be bringing his West Coast bass goodness to your hometown.
