Denver‘s Say Word Brings Danceability Back To Trap Music w/ “Shake Sum” via Play With Music | A Multi-Textured Take On Bass, Hard Trap, & Dance
Storm Coverage By: Garth Jones
Colorado is home to the Rocky Mountains, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and has been dubbed The Bass Capital by many. Although, it’s hiding one helluva music producer in those tall ass mountains, and the world needs to know more about Say Word.
A highly skilled and seasoned DJ and producer who specializes in trap, bass music, and battle style DJing. His repertoire and skillset is impressive and Say Word takes the cake for the one-of-a-kind producer in today’s market. No one touches him, in my opinion.
No stranger to our storms, Cody Mitchell, or as we said above is Say Word, and he has several (lots, actually) of dancefloor bangers, and in particular today, the track “Shake Sum” is in the spotlight for its massive sound design, danceability, but also for its insane structure.
From the get-go, Say Word wastes no time getting right into the energy of “Shake Sum“. The pop-off appeal is felt instantly. He uses a wickedly tantalizing build up right away and let’s it all go with a hyper-speed hard trap breakdown.
Then, the middle of the track adds in the flare with the manipulated vocals “Imma take your money and shake sum” that keeps the kicking-energy ready for the last drop.
The final phase of the “Shake Sum” experience is met with colossal impact. Picking up the pace, adding in more layers and elements in the crevasses of the track, allowing this ender to shine in the brightest way possible – and that’s what Say Word does best… blows your fucking mind.
In recent months, his discography has added Forever via Emengy, his Tear It Up EP via Hybrid Trap, and Get Wet with Viperactive (feat. Atak), all of which are mental and each respectively garnering immense technicality and superior sound selection that make them so unique and provocative.
Today, “Shake Sum” finds its home in the sonic household of Say Word.
Add this heater to your utmost hyphy playlists, blast his music, hit repeat/replay, and get ready for the age of Say Word. His time time is now.
Say Word mentions: “I wanted to give this one a mid-90’s feel, blended with intense energy, hard trap, and a dash of wave! On this one, I took a more danceable approach in an attempt to get the people to Shake Something again!”
“Shake Sum” is OUT NOW on all platforms – Listen TODAY!
