Bas‘ surprised us all last month when he released a new single titled “Methylone.” The Dreamville signee catches himself in a zone, (as he usually does) delivering bars over a mellow-toned production. Produced by Ron Gilmore, the single serves as the first single off his forthcoming album, Too High To Riot.
Too High To Riot will be available this Friday (March 4.) and serves as the follow up project to Last Winter which Bas released in the spring of 2014. It’s an album that Bas announced on December 4th was completed, and now we wait in anticipation. Bas is an artist that is able to get across a message by using very little extra words, and does it efficiently. J. Cole once stated that that’s why Bas is one of his favorite artists.
Providing “night time” appropriate music, Bas sets himself apart of from other artists. Leaving his voice in a mellow and baritone-like manner, Bas’ message on a track comes across quite easily. Based on the tracks we have heard so far, it wouldn’t be a surprise to hear lyrics being the narrator for a cohesive project. But we shall see when the 4th arrives.
Last Winter featured the songs “Lit” featuring J. Cole and “Golden Goals.”
Now with Bas kicking into album-mode with “Night Job,” “Clouds Never Get Old,” and “Matches.” “Clouds Never Get Old” is produced Ogee Handz and “Matches” is produced by Ron Gilmore.
