Hard on the heels his most recent single “Tension,” Denver-based bass music producer and saxophone player SoDown serves up a new plate of vibes with his latest release “Cake.”
“I wanted to make a track that reflects the state of capitalism and its shortcomings. In what seems like an endless pursuit of paper, it’s easy to lose sight of what really matters, those we love, the experiences we share, and the growth within ourselves.” — SoDown
Like the opening scene of a spaghetti western or Tarantino film, “Cake” leads with an evocative opening. With just a few haunting licks of the bass, SoDown sets an artful tone for a menacingly energized production ahead. The single draws inspiration from the mature late 80s hip-hop era while appealing to the bass-rooted dubstep sound signature to Colorado’s electronic music scene.
SoDown sets himself apart with his unique genre bending style, his craft more acutely defined with each new release — “Cake” being no exception. Written over the course of SoDown’s most recent tour, Ehren wanted to write a song that questioned the force-fed capitalistic narrative of greed.
