NEW MUSIC: 12th Planet & Mayhem Release “Whoops” ft. Pennybirdrabbit and “Murdaaa”

MOG Records returns with an incredible release from label head 12th Planet & Atlanta’s bass ambassador Mayhem. “Whoops featuring Pennybirdrabbit / Murdaaa” quickly reminds listeners why SMOG is at the forefront of the US bass music movement.

The title track “Whoops” features singer/songwriter Pennybirdrabbit delivering a jaw-dropping vocal treatment perfectly accompanying 12th Planet and Mayhem’s beastly production techniques. “Whoops” opens with foreboding synth riffs and tension-building drums as Penny’s vocals smoothly cascade down a river of emotion guiding us to the edge of tomorrow.
The flipside “Murdaaa” is a certified dance floor banger that premiered exclusively on THUMP, VICE’s new electronic dance music and culture channel, here. Described by 12th Planet in Billboard as a “traditional trap flip,” “Murdaaa” features tightly woven drums laced between rapid fire synths meticulously building up to an unexpected drop of mega proportion.

About 12th Planet
Like the mythological 12th Planet (popularized by controversial author Zecharia Sitchin), this 12th Planet flies perpendicular to the system. The American bass music pioneer’s “Reasons” (Doctor P Remix) was named one of the ‘30 Greatest Dubstep Songs of All Time’ by SPIN Magazine — after all, “nothing set the tone for domestic bass culture quite like this Planet’s orbit.” On 12/12/12, 12th Planet released ‘‘The End’ on his label SMOG Records, a highly anticipated EP featuring Skrillex, Kill the Noise, UZ, Dirtyphonics and more. With MTV labeling SMOG a “pioneering incubator of bass music in America” 12th Planet’s off-axis beats and subsonic frequencies continue to orbit on the forefront of global bass culture.
