I’ve always know Never Say Die Records to be home to some of the heaviest bass out there. Of course, when I first discovered the UK label, my associations with it were primarily dubstep. Never Say Die definitely stays true to that core, heavy dubstep sound that gained it its foundation; but, it’s also constantly working to show us that heavy bass can be attacked in a variety of ways.
After two already stunning precursors on Never Say Die, London producer LAXX returns with his “Step Three” EP. The release features, of course, the title track, which is a play on meddling with different compositions, but the same sound design (see “Step One” and “Step Two”). The rest of the EP is packed with other speaker-blasting trap and trapstep tunes.
