Following the release of his grimy bass house single, “Lights Out,” last month, Dutch house producer Kage returned to Monstercat today, unveiling his somber new single, “Numb.”
Inspired by grief and the journey towards acceptance, Kage tells the story of someone who has become emotionless and numb to the world around them. The pulsating bassline, sharp synths, and filtered chords form an alluring soundscape. As the track progresses, the energy shifts as brighter elements join the mix, reflecting the act of emerging from the darkness and into the light. With its industrial and simmering warehouse vibes, “Numb” entrances listeners, with Kage’s cinematic production stylings leaving listeners wanting more.
Kage shares, “‘Numb’ crashes down from serene and entrancing sounds into a dark and heavy bass, a ride filled with all that is Kage, designed to make you feel.”
