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.
