Bass-hop Comes “Straight from the Underground” by Way of Miilk
St. Louis’s premiere bass-hop duo Miilk is back with a brand new single that furthers their mission to curate a unique sound that combines old-school hip-hop with new-school bass. Just like their previously released singles, “Straight from the Underground” brings to listeners an experience that is unlike anything that exists out there. While the duo may integrate old-school roots into their production, the final product is something undeniably fresh and different.
“Straight from the Underground” instantly grabs listeners’ attention with siren-like sounds opening up the track – nothing like having to turn down the volume in your car to make you really pay attention. With this being Miilk’s first release in 2022, the duo is making a statement that they’re reintroducing bass-hop and, much like the title suggests, it is coming straight from the underground. Hip-hop vocals are backed by bass and synth distortions, with a repeated hook that emphasizes just how nasty this production is. We catch the glimmers of old-school vibes in the breakdown, followed by a build and drop reflective of bass tracks.
This track is the type that would fit in so many settings, from breakbeat competitions to rap battles to clubs, but I highly recommend listening through headphones for your first time through to exeprience the full depth of the bass.
