Wavecraft Collective artist MarshedBass is back with his most complete project to date. The Maya EP is here, featuring four spectacular tracks that represent this talented artist’s journey through music.
If you haven’t been paying attention, MarshedBass is having himself a year. The versatile up-and-coming producer and polished sound engineer started 2022 with three label releases in as many months – this included placements on Wavecraft Collective’s Book of Shadows: Chapter One compilation, The Gradient Perspective with Mistah Dill, and the What? Collective.
Back in February, MarshedBass was part of the Wavecraft Collective x Soundz OrGanic takeover in Providence, RI, which featured bass music superstars Ternion Sound and Black Carl! Most recently, he opened up Flash in Washington D.C. for Duffrey and G-Space. This August, he’ll be joining an unbelievably stacked lineup at Fire Lights Music Festival, featuring headliners Kll Bll, Champagne Drip and The Widdler, in Pennsylvania as part of a Wavecraft Collective takeover with fellow label artists Mahsiv and TYLR.
The Maya EP is MarshedBass’ most comprehensive and diverse project to date. Starting with the title track “Maya”, we are quickly thrown into a deep wilderness of bass with swampy textures and clean drums that carry us through this mystical escapade. The second track, “Maximum Boost”, is a true speaker shaker. After a short intro that progressively builds tension, we are hit with some fat, distorted basses that continuously change flows, leaving listeners with a perpetual stank face.
Slowing things down a bit on the third track, “Mental Shift”, MarshedBass takes us on a deep ride that’s complimented by angelic and ethereal atmospheres in the background. I remember hearing this one live on Flash’s Funktion-One sound system last week and my entire body was shaken to its core. The fourth and final track, “Memories”, is a fantastic way to cap off this EP. It’s a nice way of looking back at how far MarshedBass has come as both a producer and a sound engineer. Using different flows for different-sounding basses, this track will keep you locked in until the very end.
Having mixed and mastered all of his tracks himself, this promising bass artist is certainly one to keep your eye on moving forward. What did you think of the Maya EP from MarshedBass? Let us know in the comments below or on our social media!
