Following up a successful year with countless 2020 bangers, TVBOO seeks to reach new heights with 2021. His third release this year on Liquid Stranger‘s signature WAKAAN label, “X2” reaches filthy new sub lows with rapper Kevin Flum for a gritty, guttural bass filled dance banger. This track highlights TVBOO’s signature sludgy style on his rise in the bass scene.
“X2” is a track not to be reckoned with. Starting slow with a tasteful swag on the trap drum line and melody, the single quickly pushes up to Kevin Flum’s style and flow to form a synthesis of lyric and beat. Quickly after, it builds up to a cressendo that slaps into a bass line that will truly blow out the subs. TVBOO’s sloshy bass lines punctuate every line within this masterful soundscape as Flum’s lyrics keep the momentum through the whole track.
“When I was making the beat for ‘X2,’ I knew I wanted to get a rapper on it. I made a list of people I thought were dope, then someone showed me Kevin’s music and I instantly knew he was the guy. I loved his sound so much, I straight up threw away my list cause I knew Kevin would fit this track LIKE A GLOVE. I brought the bass, he brought the flow, and the troops brought the freedom. Praise Dale.” —TVBOO
