The weekend is just about here, and I’ll bet everyone needs a little something heavy to get the party started. Colorado based producer Shock Therapy has just what the doctor ordered. “Shock!” is a brutal dub/drumstep jam with some elements of trap snuck in there for good measure. Dripping with bass, this one will definitely get your heart beating a little faster. If you ask me, I think it sounds sort of like some old school Doctor P (think “Sweet Shop”), but that’s just me. I would recommend bumping this one at a high volume on big speakers. If you like what you hear and are in the area, you can dub out with Shock Therapy and Figure at the Fox Theater in Boulder tomorrow night (Friday, April 18). Grab the free download, turn up, and enjoy!
