The Bassrush Records crew is mobbing out with its latest issue, a massively destructive collab between Gentlemens Club and Aweminus.
As one of the most requested slammers, as far as 2020 is concerned, “Death Club” is finally seeing the light of day. Swarms of clued-in dubstep fans have been perched at the edge of their seats sweating in anticipation for the boys to bless us with the unholy union between the three-man UK outfit Gentlemens Club and SoCal’s own Aweminus. Together, they crank out three minutes of pure, unshakeable carnage. The proceedings open up with lysergic-laced synths that faintly whirl in the background until the blood-curdling “dead man walking” vocal sample hits, which is the precise moment when you realize the boys have you locked dead in their sights.
