about

Konka is a Vancouver-based producer and drummer who represents the flourishing and fertile underground bass music scene in British Columbia. He’s been on our radar for a couple years as we’ve watched him grow into his sound and find his voice as a producer. His influences of Hip Hop and Metal shine through his music as his skill as a drummer can be heard throughout.
~
Carrying forward his musical influences from his years as a drummer and performer in a blues metal band, Konka made a natural progression into electronic music with the discovery of Drum & Bass and Dubstep genres. This EP is 2 cuts of raw Halftime nastiness. You can clearly hear Kevin’s attention to detail through his obsession with sound design and bass programming combined with his skill as a drummer.
~
“Witch Kiss” is the EP’s title track starts us off with a simple beat and bed of brass to set the mood, evoking memories of 90s hip hop. The drop reminds us that we’ve been kissed by a witch and proceeds to unleash a monster 808 sub, mangled bass sounds and a detuned synth hook, over top of a clean hip hop beat that progresses with dramatic cymbal layers.
~
Ashlee, aka Vancouver’s So Sus, brings his unique take on the original “Witch Kiss”, smoothing the vibes out with a hypnotic bass melody in the intro that lends a cinematic appeal, which leads into a sexy and slinky beat. He flips the
original bass sounds, expertly manipulating their modulation and layers them over a winding, pitch-bent sub bass . At 160 bpm, this remix sounds like it could fit into any style of DJ set and be at home.
~
“Bishop” wraps up the EP in fine fashion. From the first beat, you can tell its going to be a rough ride as the tense synth and atmosphere builds rapidly. Twisted bass synths command your ear’s attention and are punctuated by snappy drums with an interesting groove. This is a tearout Halftime tune with a personality setting itself apart from it’s peers with its uniqueness.
