Video: 'Let The Bass Go' By Opio (@OpioHieroSOM) & @FreeTheRobots
Sit back, relax, & let your subconscious mind unravel. Hieroglyphics/Souls Of Mischief rapper Opio & veteran LA beat scene producer Free The Robots have released the visual for their single, "Let The Bass Go", which you can give a watch below, who referred to the music as "akin to Dilla's Kraftwerk phase", adding that the Unjust-directed video delivers a "kaleidoscopic visual treatment". "Let The Bass Go" is the second single of their upcoming 'The Subconscious Mind' EP, following "Blow Sum Smoke".
Featuring the EP's artwork & a collage of obscure vintage cartoons & movie scenes, the video is a therapeutic treat for the eyes. "Let The Bass Go" features a rumbling bassline with a series of torpedoing synths as Opio contributes his confident, nasally flow, utilizing the production to explore his inner thoughts & his devotion to music through intricate rhymes. "My direction was very bass heavy, with slower hip-hop rhythms," explains Free The Robots of "Let The Bass Go". "I let my subconscious drive this song lyrically," adds Opio, "I remembered the time I was first introduced to heavy bass, a time when all my big brothers had dope old schools with big systems."
As one of the pioneering artists to come out of LA's beat scene, Free The Robots continues to expand minds around the world with his lineup of original recordings & energetic live performances, with a knack for producing psychedelic, jazzy hip-hop soundscapes. Teaming up with Hiero rapper Opio, the duo is ready to release their new project, which pushes a forward-thinking, progressive sound. Opio & Free The Robots' 'The Subconscious Mind' EP releases 3.3.2015, and is available for pre-order on iTunes!!!
