The Gud Vibrations label is back with another release this week, a few days ahead of their live stream festival this weekend. With a massively high energy dubstep track by duo RIOT, it fits perfectly with the other tracks from the stable run by northwest favorites NGHTMRE and SLANDER. The new release by RIOT is a frenetic bass creation. Following much of their previous discography, RIOT throws formulas out the window to release this banger.

Listen to Down With Your Love below:

Down With Your Love opens up with a Daft Punk- reminiscent build into the vocals. A pitched up vocalist sings “Down with your love, can’t get enough, got me down with your love,” over a music chord riff melody. A tiny “you take me higher” is mixed in, which may be a nod to the dubstep legend MUST DIE! from Seattle’s Nerve Damage. Now firing bass on all cylinders, the drop is a plunge into a chaotic melodic storm.

The now-LA-based duo previously from Israel has been on our radar since they released You Don’t Even Know Me with SLANDER. Their sound is recognizable in their new track with a high-voltage drop charged with mechanized bass chops. But their career extends back at least six years when they dropped a future bass remix of Galantis’s mega-hit Runaway during the subgenre’s soar in popularity. Topped off with a flip of NERO’s Innocence and the duo had solidified their visibility in bass music from years ago. Over the rise of their career, RIOT has also become a familiar face to the PNW mega-label Monstercat. Dogma Resistance, RIOT’s debut album, came out on Monstercat in 2019 with a highly-cinematic conceptual feel to it.

This level of high energy may be exactly what we need as we finish out the year. RIOT spent the past six or so years honing in their glitchy, energetic, melodic, dubstep sound. Anything else the duo releases is sure to be just as chaotic in the best way possible. Listen to Down With Your Love by RIOT here, out now on Gud Vibrations. Did you enjoy the track too?
