Bass music prodigy Noer the Boy does it again, delivering the deepest, dirtiest bass on his new EP, “Writhing“. This talented artist has been tearing up the bass scene with his pristine sound design and complex yet masterful tunes. He has toured with artists such as DJ Shadow and has attracted attention from notable bass legends G Jones, Eprom, Noisia, and Ivy Lab. This release marks his fourth EP, with the hope of many more to come from this musical mastermind.

He just announced a run of shows with Wormhole in San Francisco, Eugene, and Denver. Get your tickets while they’re hot, don’t sleep on the opportunity to hear these massive new tunes live!

This EP is a bass connoisseur’s dream. “Charon’s Obol” starts things off with an ominous vibe, drawing on deep synths to create a distinct soundscape and setting the tone for the tunes to come. The next track, “Fissure,” is aptly named, as the track creates a sound aura that is broken up as the bass kicks in, but in a slow, intentional way. An inspiring synth melody layers in during the last part of the song, melding into the next track.

The title track, “Writhing,” is a noble candidate for the role. Grimey, complex synths build into a clinking ominous melody that inspires soul-rattling feelings. “Noid” was the single to drop preceding the full release, you can read more about our thoughts on it here. It was the perfect tease of this mouthwatering compilation.

The last track, “No Destiny,” has a vocal feature from HURTR that adds another layer to this foreboding collab. It is yet another musical multiplex that blends sounds together in the perfect way, to deliver pristine bass and expressive elements in the most quintessential way. This whole EP is sure to be one for the books, already being rinsed by Of The Trees and other bass heavyweights. Turn it up loud and immerse yourselves in this infinite sound bath.

Noer called this his “his favorite work so far”, and we couldn’t agree more. Let us know what you think in the comments below and on social media!
