Bionik – The Way I Be EP

Badman Hip Hop producer (the beats behind some of my favorite Aceyalone albums), recent winner of The Untz Challenge and all around Studio Genius, Bionik, has graced us with a masterpiece of Trap & Bass sounds that brings real Hip Hop sensibilities to the Bass music stage, with stompin results!

Filled with beautifully talented vocal work from various artists, impeccable  production and an ear to the dance floor, this albums drops a full range of Hip Hop influences (sometimes all within the same song),  from old school breaks like “Back to the Beat”  to chopped and screwed vocals with nods to footwork and booty bass on “Do that Dance” Feat. Phoenix Orion, to Dancehall & full on Trap bangers like “Ball like Beijing” Feat Lizzo or “Rock with Me” featuring Sophia Eris.

Syncopated 808 hits drive the entire album,  funkin up every track right when it’s called for, freeing your ass straight to the dance floor before your mind has chance to follow.  Every single one of these tracks is an anthem and a banger. This is the soundtrack to your urban summer party if I ever heard one. And I’ve heard quite a few!

Even the meditative Ballad “Shame on Me” Feat Manchita has a fierce edge that rocks you while it trances you with its acrobatic and melodic vocal work and lush sound design.

Don’t hesitate to cop this EP, out now on the Party Time Society Label, and load it up on your favorite listening machine, or add it to your next live set and get ready to watch the place bounce!
