Dubstep don Subtronics and metal fusion maestro Sullivan King have teamed up to create the ultimate genre mashup. “Take Flight” is the newest addition to the growing metal dubstep sub-genre. Sullivan King has been at the forefront of this pack, collaborating on tracks with Excision, Kayzo, Kill the Noise, TYNAN, and more. Subtronics kicks in to add his own powerful dose of heavy dub, creating an unforgettable track that fans of both artists are sure to love.
Last month, Subtronics had the honor of playing the first full capacity Red Rocks show, an event that blew up social media and reinvigorated fans to the turning of a new leaf after the last year. He had plenty of prep for this show after a successful run of drive-in and pod events across the country, with support from the likes of Level Up, Dirt Monkey, Boogie T, Guppi, Space Wizard, and more.
Sully has also had an eventful summer, with the release of his new album “Loud” in June, as well as a string of super successful shows, bringing in special guest Kai Wachi for a headlining show at Rawhide Event Center in AZ and providing support for Excision for multiple curated super-events.
“Sull-tronics” begins with an ominous whisper and haunting trickle before Sully’s infamous scream begins to spin, along with a gnarly electric guitar arpeggio. It continues to build further, melding elements of both classic electronic, dubstep, and rock influences.
The lumbering bass then blasts off the listener into dubstep space, the melody flickering around like stars as you are catapulted through sound. Deep wubs transform into more menacing Sullivan King vocals. The second drop delivers more walloping bass that is sure to get heads banging, complemented by an absolute TKO of a breakdown. This massive track has everything a listener could want out of these two powerhouse artists, something that their fans are sure to devour with gusto.
