Generation Bass presents: CY KOSIS – 7 Deadly Beats EP!
You know we don’t mess around when it comes to music. We have a strong opinion about artists and styles, but every once in a while even the Generation Bass team is forced to rethink their opinion about stuff. Or about TRAP, the fastest growing online music phenomenon since eerrr…? Moombahton? That is largely due thanks to two awesome producers, Munchi and Cy Kosis!
Based out of Los Angeles, (originally from Queens, New York) Jamaal Taylor aka Cy Kosis has been hard at work refining his unique style of production. With support from heavyweights like Diplo, The Partysquad, Aylen, ETC! ETC!, J-Trick and gLAdiator, and constant mentions on both domestic and international blogs, Jamaal continues to inundate the scene with original tracks and huge remixes. We’ve been supporting this dude for some time, and now he has dropped a certified TRAP banger on our asses.
Containing 7 Deadly Beats, the aptly titled EP combines the dark booming 808’s of trap with Moombahton, some Baltimore Club and sick bass music. Titles are of course, the deadly sins themselves! “Envy” kicks like a mule with some sick chiptune distortion in there as well. “Gluttony” and “Greed” are close to the ‘original’ TRAP sound, with booming subs, rattling hi-hats and snares and dark melodies. This is TRAP, but not as we know it Jim!? The rolling downtempo sound is there, but there’s some aggression lurking in there that sometimes takes over completely, references are ARAAB MUZIK or THA UZI, who both try to take this sound to a next level, combining it with some trance effects and house and techno vibes. CY KOSIS adds some global bass to the mix as well and then when you least expect it, he even adds some old school GABBER to the mix in “Wrath”. This is next level TRAP. Don’t sleep.
