Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble; if your coven has been searching for a new soundtrack to sacrificing goats, then Bailo’s newest single “Flatline” might just be the track for you.
The track, which was released today on Thrive Music, oozes a certain sinister intensity, expertly merged with punk rock emotion, and EDM sensibilities. With mashups like this it’s no wonder that Bailo has the support of top industry talent like DJ Snake, Borgore, UZ and Herobust.
The track itself functions like a well oiled rollercoaster should. The verses build tension using church ah’s, ethereal pads, and finally a sampled ECG machine before the flatline results with the sickest, heaviest drop that you will hear all month. And speaking of these drops, the bass here is massive; I mean this is the kind of bass that could knock you over if you got too close to the subwoofer at a festival.
The whole thing comes across like a slick well-oiled machine, but if there is a negative aspect to talk about here, it might be that the track may be a bit too intense for your average dance fan. The imagery evoked in this track feels a little out of place to me. The church ah’s for example would fit in better at a black metal festival than a bass festival. If you can get past that, then you are in for a treat.
