Topping the list of underrated duos in bass music is none other than Halifax’s own dope. From crushing their FUXWITHIT Guest Mix at the top of the year, to constantly impressing with new original and flips, the duo always find the perfect balance between chest-thumping low end and hip hop sensibilities. Blessing fans with a fresh batch of heat comes SKiiMASK | WAMP a two track project that’s assured to impress.
‘SKiiMASK’ pairs distorted off-kilter vocals from clipping.’s ‘Taking Off’ with filthy space bass. This track feels like smoking a gas bong in your backyard as the apocalypse hits. ‘Wamp’ is a true standout that takes the familiar vocals from the Clipse x Slim Thug classic ‘Wamp Wamp.’ Slim Thug’s hook is filtered as the intro warms listeners up. As Pusha T flexes with the bars, dope craft a masterful backing that’s hypnotic, pounding and thick. Taking it to the next level, they strip things back in the break to allow the hook breathe once more before smashing the finale with a filthy drop.
Effortlessly fusing rap & bass music, dope prove once again why they’re up next with SKiiMASK | WAMP. Stream it below and grab it on Bandcamp.
