dope – Goon

Halifax-based bass duo dope are back with yet another banger on FUXWITHIT.  ‘Goon’ marks their third release on our label following the massive single ‘Mild Drugs,’ and their ‘Hypnotic’ contribution our Champions Of The Underground Vol. 1 compilation. The track builds upon the sound we’ve come to expect from the pair mixing gritty trap, brutish bass, icy melodies, and undeniable hip-hop-influenced swagger to bring it all together.

‘Goon’ lives up to its name and the reputation that dope has been steadily building. Hints of classic trap are balanced against a modern bass sound for the perfect concoction. The filtered intro allows the elements to creep in gradually, building suspense while injecting a spine-tingling allure. Pitched-down rap vocals shift the scene as dope delivers the uncut filth listeners keep coming back for. Booming low-end, grainy textures, snappy drums, and a fierce bounce anchor the track. What makes it truly stand out is the progression and evolution. ‘Goon’ shapeshifts several times over without ever taking its foot off the gas or sacrificing the knock. Built for basement sets and festivals alike, ‘Goon’ is another reminder of why dope are one of the illest duos in the scene.
