Don’t Stop Ballin’ with Grabbitz in New EP

Grabbitz shocked everyone with his Friends EP, giving us a peek into vocal led Dubstep tracks that are severely underrated. After getting noticed by deadmau5 with his vocal edit of "Silent Picture," it was only a matter of time before the New York native released some new music. Now he’s back with two track EP Ballin’/ Don’t Stop. The Monstercat artist goes back to his dubstep roots, combining Trap and DnB into the tracks creating a formidable duo that will fit into every basshead’s collection.

Grabbitz – Ballin’/ Don’t Stop EP

Ballin’ opens the EP and what an opening it is. The drums build up quickly as the grungy synthesizers blend into a trap drop that will have every head bobbing throughout. I don’t know about you but this has that Skrillex-esque bro-step sound; don't let that word deter you from listening though. The dirty, grimy synth fits perfectly into the rumbling bass that is apparent throughout the entire track. I can definitely imagine this fitting into plenty of live sets. grabbitz Monstercat Ballin'/Don't Stop The second track Don’t Stop expands on the “bro-step” sound incorporating bits of DnB into the track, yet retaining the high quality Grabbitz is known for. The drop sounds like a slower version of “Holdin’ On” and yet sounds fresh and new. The driving grunge synthesizer appears again; this time incorporating less trap, more dubstep. The second drop in my opinion is the better out of the two as it adds more technicality, more glitch, just all around more into the drop that was missing in the first one. Both drops work great together creating a track that I never want to end. Grabbitz continues to impress release after release, blending genres, making tracks that are infectious, perfect for those heavy mixes. If you’d like to put these into your newest mixes, purchase them now from iTunes, Beatport and Bandcamp.
