Just when you thought you’d heard it all, PIERCE is about to dramatically change the game with his upcoming FLESH EP, and he’s just dropped its first single “Death Note.” As one part of a 7-track series that tells a bone-chilling story of life and death circumstances, “Death Note” takes place in the center of the action. Our hero awakens from unconsciousness in the hands of captors who are out for blood and must fight for his life if he is to survive. PIERCE narrates the terrifying episode with goosebump-inducing effect through the use of meticulous, bass-driven production; the sound of a knife blade being sharpened, evil cackling, stabbing synths and blackout-inducing basslines all contribute to the track’s life-and-death feeling. “Death Note” ends on a victory note as PIERCE breaks from his captivity and subsequently takes out the leader of his assailants, leaving the listener with an insatiable curiosity as to how he came to be in this situation and what happens next. You’ll have to wait and see, as the next hint drops on September 28th.
Austin Pierce Guerra, better known as the maestro behind PIERCE, makes the type of music that both instills terror in soccer moms and bloodthirsty euphoria in bassheads – the type that sounds like it could come straight from a steel factory, yet drives thousands of bodies into a frenzy on the dancefloor. While perfecting his craft at Icon Collective production school, PIERCE learned the ropes from some of the best minds in the business. After graduating in 2015, he had his debut EP“Audi” signed to Spinnin’ Records within a year, then went on to release “Hijack” on Insomniac’s Bassrush label in 2017. “FLESH” is his most ambitious project yet, fusing the mind of a storyteller and producer together to create a dark sonic tale of survival. Keep an eye out for the next pieces to PIERCE‘s menacing puzzle coming soon.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2015, ANGELZ has held both fans and industry tastemakers alike captivated with his sound, amassing over 12 million streamson Soundcloud, Spotify and YouTube combined.

I produced the songs during a particularly emotional time for me, and I let my own feelings guide the sound; they were my inspiration and my North Star.”

As we continue in the pursuit of pinpointing the biggest records within the dubstep and bass music soundscape, we are excited to bring back a time honored Buygore artist that has always delivered the dubs. Hailing from Belgium, Point.Blank has routinely put out some of both Fresh Blood and Buygore Records most heralded tunes on dance floors around the globe.
Following in the steps of his previous ‘Money’ EP release, Point.Blank has never disappointed when it comes to his authentic yet intriguing sound design. Point.Blank has also put out a handful of releases on the Buygore sub-label Fresh Blood; with two original pieces of work on Fresh Blood Volume 2 entitled “Bomb” and “That Hip Hop Shit,” Point.Blank returned on Fresh Blood Volume 3 with a collaboration featuring Savage Society affiliate Definitive proving his loyalty to the Borgore-lead brand.
Buygore Records is adrenalized to announce that the ‘Lurking’ EP, a five-track installment exhibiting the new sounds of the Belgium-based artist, will be one of the first releases of the year. ‘Lurking’ is set in motion with the opening track “Roll Up,” a long-awaited fan favorite that has been storming through live sets by some of the biggest names in the scene. The third track on the project entitled “Computer” begins with an amalgamation of digital sound effects, accompanied by a cataclysmic build that leads into blaring horns and heavy reverb carrying the track from drop to drop. The EP wraps up with “Tony Montana” and a VIP version as an extra added bonus; while “Tony Montana” already brings the basslines for a memorable epilogue, the VIP breathes new life into the track and has listeners at the edge of their seats already waiting for more.
One of Belgium’s most popular exports behind waffles and chocolate, Point.Blank is regarded as a pioneer of the harder more aggressive dubstep sound that has swept North America by storm. Point.Blank has long standing support from Borgore, who signed him on to Buygore Records in 2014, as well as Excision, Zomboy, Datsik, Terravita, and many more.
With an ever-expanding global soundscape, there is an unlimited reserve of new sounds and up-and-coming artists from around the world. Buygore Records’ Fresh Blood sub-label has welcomed some of the underground bass music scene’s most promising of 2017; as we begin the new year, it feels more than fitting to expand the Fresh Blood roster for a hidden gem from South Africa. Operating under the moniker Jon Casey, our next release gives listeners a palatable sampling of tunes that reflect his inner maestro in his forthcoming ‘6 Caliber’ EP.
The forthcoming ‘6 Caliber’ project is the first of its kind on the Fresh Blood imprint. Straying away from the typical dubstep-centric releases, Jon Casey’s four-track installment introduces a variety of rap-infused, experimental-style beats from the underground. Each track on the EP enfolds another facet of Jon Casey’s production skillset. “Flexin’” featuring LA-based rapper Macntaj gives ‘6 Caliber’ a robust preamble, fusing together elements of hip-hop, rap, and freeform trap rhythms. Jon Casey’s ‘6 Caliber’ is also home to three new collaborators. Featuring Philadelphia-based hip hop artist Abrax Phaeton on the bass heavy track entitled “Get Right”, as well as Jetset and Magmag on “Chainsaw”, it is clear that Casey’s skillfulness reaches new heights with every release.
Hailing from Pretoria, South Africa, Casey’s ‘6 Caliber’ EP is set to be the first Fresh Blood release of the new year. The self-taught bedroom music producer may only be 21-years-old, but he is entering 2018 with a promising start. After bringing his unique sound design from South America to the U.S., Jon Casey does not disappoint in his forthcoming Fresh Blood release.
