Chance meetings are the best – especially when two people come together to make music. That’s what happened with KLOWN, a Los Angeles based duo first spawned out from Nicholas Bottino & Joseph Berman meeting in collage in Orlando, Florida and sitting down to work on some tunes together. And aren’t we glad they did – since KLOWN’s inception in 2016, they have toured nationally with supporting Dodge & Fuski, Dubloadz, and Hekler.
Coining their very own “Jersey Clubstep”, a forward-thinking blend of East Coast club and unique bass music the duo have had a slew of big releases including “Doinks” via Disciple Round Table, their EP “Hooliganz” via Grvdncr and a collaboration “Kingpin” with the legendary KJ Sawka of Pendulum & Destroid.
KLOWN have now delivered us a brand-new tune, “Dirtbag” released through frshblood, the sub-label of Buygore, with its spooky intro and awesomely simple but effective metallic scrape-y drop this release holds true to the dark circus undertone that is present in all of KLOWNs work.
KLOWN had this to say about the release:
Dirtbag combines haunting synth melodies into a whirlwind of metallic bass. The main focus of this track was to try and create a dubstep drop that had technical simplicity while still being aggressive.
With support from Excision, Zeds Dead, Nghtmre, Slander, 12th Planet, & many more, KLOWN is pushing the limits in electronic music and is sure to be a driving force in the industry’s future.
