Ardent experimental bass music producer Mr. Carmack, real name Aaron Carmack, has had a riveting career in the West Coast bass scene over the past several years, embarking on a journey of creating vividly extraterrestrial beats. In many senses, Carmack’s work aptly blends a variety of genres from electronic, trap, hip-hop, and more, fronting a range of sonic sensibilities that have given him an exuberant reputation. Releasing a plethora of mixtapes and EP’s over a near decade, it was 2016’s Yellow EP that really drove Carmack’s artistic identity to the forefront. It was this 46-track surprise project that ultimately showcased his range of talent, from hard-hitting remixes to innovative originals that spanned a range of genres. Now, Mr. Carmack is back with a more thematically channeled and focused approach in his latest EP, Demolish.

As the EP’s name exudes, the 8-track project’s central theme is destruction — every song relishes in hardily chopped basslines, cracked and off-kilter synths, atmospherically placed samples from dog barks to dubstep wubs, and more. He moves far away from his more melodically-approached efforts, this EP being the total reverse, meticulously filled with all the production irregularities and syncopated sounds one could hope for. But in no way are these irregularities un-welcomed. Each track carries itself effortlessly, offering up idiosyncratic possibilities that relish in Carmack’s bedroom-production vibe — he takes a bunch of abnormal sounds and puts them together, somehow making it work.
