Any genre runs the risk of getting stale after long enough, even bass house. But Ephwurd and DM2 have proven with their new song, “Activate,” that there’s still plenty of life left in the genre yet.


Ephwurd is a known variable in the world of bass house, but DM2 is relatively new to the genre, having only put out two tracks before now at all. Yet, the combination of these two is absolutely undeniable — “Activate” is wild fun and also presents a new side to bass house I haven’t seen before.

Starting with a sort of ’80s funk beat on the toms, it switches to the prototypical build/rise before bringing the same new-style drums to the drop. Coupled with the noisy bass synth and chopped vocals, it’s an infectious beat that anyone should fine easy to bounce around to. The two go further by adding some deeper bass elements in the second drop, as well.
