I don’t know if you heard yet but future bass is the genre of 2016. Like trap in 2013 and deep house in 2014, future bass is in its prime this year with countless acts making their mark on electronic music history. Monstercat has been at the forefront, giving the community great artists that are quickly becoming household names such as San Holo, Haywyre, Mr FijiWiji and now Conro. The Canadian producer’s aptly titled premiere track with the label, “On My Way Up,” is a step in a different direction for the burgeoning producer, and an excellent track to include in your library.
Conro – On My Way Up
After the slow beginning grabs listeners with crescendoing chords and choppy vocals, the buildup drops into a fast-paced chopped synth melody giving it that future bass feel we all love nowadays. While most future bass pieces will be slower and more bass driven, Conro gives a quicker pace, making the focus on the impressive synthesizer skills he has created.
Starting form a young age, Conro initially started out playing violin with the Saskatoon Youth Symphony before finding electronic music when he got older. After dabbling in electro house at first, he hit the #8 spot on the Billboard charts, receiving plays from Porter Robinson, Knife Party, and Tommy Trash. Incorporating his electro house roots while adding his own flair, I’m excited to see Conro evolve even more as an artist and hope you will join him on the ride.
Check out Conro on www.monstercat.com and his social media pages for more information about the growing producer. Be on the lookout for more music from him and always remember to keep on working your way up.
