This week MalLabel Music is bringing you yet another full spectrum Bass Music release with an incredibly diverse EP by Rhode Island’s, Levitation Jones
Stretching his unique form of mercurial and introspective Bass Music across the Eastern US, Levitation Jones has been bending hearts and minds with his ever evolving creativity and style. He often takes weirdo bass to a whole new level of eccentricity with soundscapes straight out of a sci-fi movie riding that bass before coming back and hitting you with the feels. This diversity of emotion and grime has brought him to melt audiences at over 40 shows a year and this latest EP might be the most perfect example of how his innovative visions come into the artistic light.
Transgentleman is an appropriate name for an EP that takes us through so many phases of evolution across it’s six pieces and even within some of them on their own. The title track gets weird immediately with some tripped out atmospherics and glitchy IDM noise generators before hitting you with a fat wall of bass to kick it off as ‘Larry’ continues the trip into a land of mischievous creatures and grime. ‘Robot Butterfly’ chills it out on a ride through the land of sprites and digitalis before ‘New Kid’ takes a mean interlude to an old school Dubstep vibe. ‘See’ is a beautiful experiment in IDM reminiscent of the great Aphex Twin while ‘Moon Man’ carries the vibe home in this epic Vaporbass finale. With so much to get down to in so many ways on this EP, all your crates with thank you for the love.
