Hydraulix continues his debut album rollout with his third offering, “Concrete.” On his latest, worlds collide as the bass titan teams up with Ohio based alternative hip-hop artist Jasiah. In “Concrete”, the Sydney native pushes his sound further into unprecedented territory to unleash an uncompromising bass metal hybrid treat. “Concrete” is out now via WAKAAN and serves as the third single off his forthcoming debut album, Imposter Syndrome, out September 10.
With “Concrete”, Hydraulix follows his recent single “Another Minute” ft. Muchi. While both tracks rest on the hip hop spectrum, they see him explore two completely different styles — all while preserving his distinct dubstep sound. “Concrete” is a supernova of energy, angst, and power. Combining Jasiah’s screamo-coated vocals with Hydraulix’s sleek downbeat sub bassline, the alternative hip hop gem once again proves that his debut album will be his most diverse piece of work yet.
‘Concrete’ started as something I wrote with a bunch of mates in the room. I was showing them some different tricks I had learnt but I always knew it could be more than just that. It slowly progressed over time, taking on different forms until I had the instrumental you hear now. My team and I knew that when I was working on the album we wanted a rapper for ‘Concrete’. I threw out Jasiah as a pipe dream and my homie, Afterthought, was able to help us connect the dots. To my surprise, Jasiah loved the beat and was actually down to get on it. – Hydraulix
When given the opportunity to work with fast-rising producer, singer songwriter, and all around creative Jasiah, Hydraulix saw it as a chance to continue breaking the boundaries of his potential. The Dayton rapper, known for his thrashing scream and guitar-driven rap ballads, has gained a reputation for creating DIY leftfield alternative hip hop. Having emerged in the era of the ‘SoundCloud rapper’, Jasiah carved out his own lane with his impeccable ability to transcend genres and excel at each one. His work landed him collaborations with some of the industry’s most coveted artists including Denzel Curry, Rico Nasty, 6ix9ine, Carnage, and Travis Barker. For Hydraulix, Jasiah’s chameleon-like knack to excel in every genre made their collaboration a no-brainer.

ABOUT JASIAH — A producer, songwriter, and vocalist who prefers not to be called a rapper — known most for his piercing scream, he also sings mournful ballads — Jasiah built up a modest discography before he went overground in 2019, culminating with the 11-track project Jasiah I Am.
Before he became known as Jasiah, Malachi Pate released material under a slew of aliases, including Phreetherapper, a couple variations thereof, and Ja$iah.
