German-based solo artist WibeZz has a love for bass, and it shows. WibeZz primarily works with self-recorded samples and synthesizers, also performing as a DJ where he features his bass & dubstep music. His EP titled Waked is a great sampling of the kind of electronic music WibeZz is capable of creating – dynamic, unique, and infectious.
On this three-track EP, we find a comprehensive range of dubstep elements from WibeZz. These tracks are hard-hitting and bass-forward, employing a range of industrial and heavy instrumentation to create a unique and distinctive sonic blend. The beats at times are reminiscent of classic hip-hop sounds, while the production and arrangement of each track are unquestionably modern and cutting edge in execution.
The title track Waked is a stand-out on this EP. A subtle and soft beginning gives way to a textured build. The relaxed interlude around the 2-minute mark breaks up the intensity of the track nicely, introducing melodic moments and utilizing a lighter hand with the percussion that adds welcome variance.
For dubstep and electronic fans looking for a fresh, artistic-driven, high-octane artist on the rise, WibeZz is a creator to watch. EP Waked is a strong effort that shows a keen ear for smart production, strong artistic vision, and uncompromising boldness. Stream this hard-hitting work for yourself below.
