California label SMOG Records is defending their reputation in reputable fashion with the third installment of their SMOG City compilation series. SMOG City Volume 3 starts off with a hard-hitting trap/trapstep collaboration from 12th Planet and Tha Trickaz. From there the album dives into a lot of dark, rhythmic bass from SPL, Dubloadz, Flinch, and more. With appearances from artists such as Son of Kick and Bleep Bloop the compilation shows an awareness of the evolving state of bass music, while still paying plenty of tribute to the label’s beginnings and roots through plenty of ferocious dubstep tracks.
