Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of their 2020 release Astro­planes, Toronto based Big City Base­ment are back with their latest single — Good Times :). Big City aims to address the ongo­ing pan­dem­ic in their own way through the organ­ic and anim­ated track. Offer­ing an emo­tion­al tune-up and added bounce, Good Times 🙂 provides some much needed optim­ism after what has been a tough year for most.

Con­sist­ing of Anom­aly, Phe­noM and pro­du­cer Malodik, the dynam­ic trio cre­ate and styl­ize music that doesn’t fit with­in tra­di­tion­al or con­tem­por­ary hip-hop, their sound is unique and dis­tinct­ive.

Good Times 🙂 sees Big City Base­ment step­ping back from their usu­al ‘reflect­ive, sober lyr­ic­al con­tent’ with an uplift­ing track that boasts elec­tro vibes and a dis­tinct­ive ele­ment of funk, cre­at­ing an exper­i­ence that is less about words and more about feel­ing. ‘I hope it’s the begin­ning of us widen­ing our expres­sion palette a bit, maybe pick­ing and choos­ing spots when to unload this type of vibe again’, said Phe­noM.

The new single serves up funky synth driv­en son­ics and a strong groovy bass­line, neatly pack­aged along­side Phe­noM and Anomaly’s vocal chem­istry cre­at­ing a refresh­ingly ori­gin­al sound. With the sheer amount of new tal­ent in the music industry right now, cat­egor­ies are becom­ing increas­ingly dif­fi­cult to define, the latest offer­ing from Big City Basement’s sound couldn’t have come at a bet­ter time.

Inspir­a­tion behind the track came with the need of some­thing to cel­eb­rate after months of Cov­id lock­down. Anomoly added that ‘hav­ing a good time is as import­ant as any­thing right now, but hav­ing a good time has been nearly impossible in times of that we’re liv­ing in’.

Good Times 🙂 is out now on all major plat­forms.
