The Canadian duo dope is shaking things up again with their latest release “Goon,” dropped on the ever-evolving FUXWITHIT label. These Halifax natives have been carving a niche for themselves at the intersection of bass music and hip-hop, consistently pushing the envelope with their unique sound. “Goon” is the latest in a string of standout releases, following the likes of “Mild Drugs” and “Hypnotic,” the latter being part of FUXWITHIT’s ‘Champions Of The Underground’ compilation.
“Goon” may delve a bit into the technical side of music production, but what truly makes it shine is the essence of dope’s artistic identity. The duo’s flair for fusing elements like gritty basslines, hip-hop vibes, and a touch of the unconventional gives “Goon” its distinct character.
dope’s rise in the East Coast Canada’s bass music scene has been nothing short of impressive. They’ve headlined major events like the Future Forest Festival and shared stages with influential artists such as Tsuruda. Their approach to music production – one that seamlessly marries experimental bass, dub, rap, grime, and other progressive sounds – has garnered them a reputation as pioneers in their field.
Meanwhile, FUXWITHIT has been a formidable presence since its inception as a music blog in 2014. Their transition into a record label has only amplified their impact on the music industry. Focused on hip-hop and electronic music, FUXWITHIT stands as a beacon for innovation and quality, traits that are clearly echoed in dope’s “Goon.”
In essence, “Goon” shows off dope’s artistic growth and is a nod to their ability to stay ahead of the curve. It’s a perfect example of what happens when artists stay true to their vision while embracing the ever-changing landscape of music.
