South African producer Jon Casey is a force of nature who has been storming the bass scene with a multitude of exceptional releases across trap, deep dubstep, drum & bass, halftime, breaks, and more. Unleashing his debut single on Bassrush Records comes “Gimme,” a boundary-pushing 140 dubstep anthem.

“Gimme” blurs the line between gritty and addictive, amounting to an anthemic 140 banger. Pulse-raising basslines set the tone from the first note, while crisp claps and understated chants set the stage for a ravenous underground scene. The relentless vocal loop anchors the track, embodying a catchy swagger that makes it approachable and ever-pleasing. Industrial flourishes round out the sonic palette before the track descends into the soul-rattling drops, which are built around warbling leads, throbbing sub-bass, sharp accents, and chirping tones. Anticipatory breakdowns and pristine breakbeat fills help break up the bass and intensify the impact of the massive drops. Combining filthy sound design, pounding bass, and infectious lyrics that continue to clamoring for more, “Gimme” is a weapon that will be destroying DJ sets and setting playlists ablaze for the foreseeable future.

Breaking down the vibe of his new single, Jon Casey says, “‘Gimme’ came into fruition when I was experimenting with vocals and trying to find a way to create a song that will get people moving on the dancefloor without being too complex. Something palatable.”

The track marks Jon Casey’s second release with the Bassrush label, following his remix of “MASHUP” on REAPER’s ‘DISRUPTOR (Remixes)’ album.

South African producer Jon Casey is one of the most in-demand artists in bass music. With a style that fuses elements of trap, drum & bass, 140 dubstep, electronica, and more, his sound is wide-ranging but always impressive. His catalog boasts a myriad of originals, as well as remixes for heavy-hitters like Noisia, Nitepunk, and Deathpact, plus collaborations with NGHTMRE, Imanu, TroyBoi, Great Dane, Dabow, and several others. Jon is gearing up for a run of festival dates that includes EDC Las Vegas, Paradise Blue, North Coast Music Festival, and Ubbi Dubbi. He kicked the year off supporting Subtronics on his nationwide ‘Tesseract’ Tour. The stadium-sized run of shows was followed by his joint ‘Collision’ EP alongside Pauline Herr, including a headline tour across the West Coast.

Energetic, dark, and insatiable, “Gimme” shows the one and only Jon Casey setting a new standard for 140 dubstep anthems in 2024.
