Longtime friends and producers T-Mass and Subsurface finally team up for the first time for their new release “Hypnotize,” a sonic gem that throws back to the old-school sound of future bass and showcases both artists’ signature styles.
The track sets the stage with soulful vocals and sparkling xylophone melodies, then melds with a rising percussive bassline into a groovy, euphoric drop and chorus. It’s the ability to weave elements of trap and dubstep with vibrant, feel-good melodies that has put T-Mass and Subsurface on the map as producers at the forefront of future bass and dance music. This collaboration took place a long time after the two artists met in 2017 in Italy at LOVE ELECTRO! Festival, and the track was born earlier this year when Subsurface sent an old song idea to T-Mass, who immediately was inspired and created a whole new version. “Hypnotize” follows T-Mass’s recent remake of “Somebody’s Watching Me” from this fall.
