I love to come to work on the Monday morning, still half-asleep (btw, who has invented this totally stupid clock changing scheme twice a year ?!?!?) to be brutally woken up by an almighty sound of super ill crunky bass giving me shivers and bringing a wiiiiiiide smile on my face. One of the best surprises music-wise this year.
I've just received an e-mail from a newcomer to the scene (though his sound is quite mature and developed), ProBiotik, hailing from Reno, Nevada, who shared a few of the tracks done under the moniker of Love and Light, which apparently is a collaboration between ProBiotik and 4Centers. (correct me if I'm wrong) These tracks are the filthiest shit I've heard in a while from mid-tempo whompy department! I really encourage you to check the soundcloud of Love and Light and ask for 320's, while they still last.
A real bomb for starters, Ghosts N Stuff (ProBiotiK's Shievers Down Your Spine Remix), sporting a beautiful violin and voice samples, will definitely smash any dancefloor and irreversibly damage any unprotected speakers. It has a really epic anthem feel to it and crunky bassline with whompy beat hit me so hard I resigned from my morning-fresh Red Bull. One of the best tracks I've heard this year. Reminding me a bit of Knight Riderz dope skitz.

More crunky shit with heavy, wobbley bassline and sick beat, plus fantastic Beastie Boys' sample (I'm a real sucker for BB's stuff!). If this track does not work for you - please refrain from reading my blog right now, our tastes are too discrepant :)

Finally, a famous statement by Ronald Reagan: "Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem" turned into super heavy crunky roller. Check more dope sound on Love and Light soundcloud.
