BROHUG has done it once again with some bass-laden tunes released just in time for the new year. Closing out 2018, is the “Swag / Vamos” EP release on Dim Mak Records. Both tunes are filled to the brim with bass and BROHUG’s signature sound.
“Swag” is energetic with a repeating female vocal that echoes after the drop. “Vamos” employs a deep voice repeating the title and filling the floor with heavy bass ambiance. It takes some inspiration from the big-room genre.
