Producer Magna has just returned to the scene today with a walloping dubstep original titled “Riot 20XX (Back Again), released through Uprise Music. With a constantly changing melody and fierce attention to sonic detail, Magna has successfully given this listener a neck workout with all the head-banging the song inspired. It’s currently available for purchase here.
The track begins with a fast-paced percussion arrangement and swelling, tonal loop. Brass stings punctuate the build, until a tom fill brings us into the madness. Wailing screeches and deadly hi hat rolls fill the spaces between abrasive vocal samples and a heavy snare. The drop continues to evolve until the song finally breaks down. After the second rise, high pitched yelps and long holds of horn characterize the second round.
