Up-and-coming Los Angeles-based producer Xavage is about to ‘Pull Up’ with a massive new trap banger. Built around the energetic and anthemic vocal sample “pull up with the squad, we getting lit,” Xavage creates a track that’s infectious yet hard-hitting with expert sound design. The rap vocals are simplistic enough to make this a staple at clubs and festivals, while the deep and dark wubs are sure to please the most discerning bassheads. One minute you’re grooving and grinding on the dance floor, the next a mosh pit has opened up and taken things all the way to 10. With a hip hop core and some deep bass leanings the sound is sure to draw comparisons to heavyweights like Hydraulix, Oski and G-Rex, while still remaining fresh and unique. The song is available for free download, just text “Hey” to +1 (714) 695-5645.

“Since the vocal drew the inspiration of the track I knew I wanted to steer it in the direction energetic, upbeat, and perfect for an environment of a party. I also wanted the drop to be catchy, simple, and easy to remember with that Xavage touch. The goal is for it to be type of track where at a festival attendees would scream along with the drop going, ‘BOM BOM BOM BOM.’ This one was simply made to have a good time with the squad.” – Xavage

The Swedish producer uses a driving bass, terrific vocals, his signature and powerful lead and future funk styled chords that we hear somewhat similar of in his original song “Break Away“. He also uses adlibs throughout the breaks to add to the atmosphere. His strong buildup sets up the drop beautifully, and could not have been done better than Jonth has executed here! One bit of ear candy that I always keep going back and listening to is the setup before the second half of each drop. The chord he uses here is brilliantly placed, as well as having that funk element to it gives the whole track a groovy vibe.
The long awaited masterpiece brought to you Jonth is out now! Check it out here:
