Reviewing ‘HIGH’ & ‘EAZY TING’
To start off, ‘HIGH‘ begins with percussive rhythms that can make streamers start grooving right away. Afterwards, the beats starts enhancing after the vocals of “Let’s burn down the club” produced a glitch-like sound. The music then started to sound more trippy and energetic as the percussion turned up the volume. ‘HIGH‘ is the perfect epitome of what bass house sounds like and it is the perfect track for all occasions.
The second track, ‘EAZY TING‘, has light, steady drum beats that ease the listeners in the beginning. During the track, Proxy also provides vocals that said, “All things are gonna be like easy sh*t, I’m tellin’ you”. ‘EAZY TING‘ has exciting breakdowns and gnarly hooks that have been synonymous with most of Proxy’s past tracks. The beats and glitches heightened as the track progressed, which can turn a somber atmosphere into a fun one right away.
