Returning to the spotlight with the second edition of his popular Droid Bass EP, AXEN is back with  a worthy follow-up in Droid Bass 2. Stepping away from the of his previous work’s chaotic and menacing vibe, Droid Bass 2 helps demonstrate a more melodic side of AXEN that he states stemmed from “emotional stories in robot-themed series.” The EP starts off with “Time Worth,” where a heroic-feeling build guided by Lenday’s vocals leads into a mechanical synth-driven drop. Maintaining the mechanical feel throughout the second song “Here’s To Hoping,” Luma’s vocal addition perfectly complements the winding and grinding of the tune. Finally, AXEN rounds off the EP with a masterful dance floor destroyer w/ HYLO and Karra flexing her vocal dexterity and range on what is sure to be a fan favorite in “ROOM.” The robotic synths and Karra’s lyrics help bring in closure, seamlessly closing out the story of the EP AXEN has carefully curated.
