Ascending Talent Mize Unleashes New Single “Refraction” Out Now via Wakaan
Article by: Ryan Hood
Hot boy summer has officially begun, as Mize releases his long-awaited single “Refraction.”
“Refraction” is the Alabama-based producer’s follow up single to his Wakaan debut EP, Thought Process. The single was featured as the opening track of his Refractions mixtape and was accompanied by a cappellas from Mac Miller, Jibbs, Nero, and Drake.
The song opens with a melodic top line reminiscent of 2000’s trance music. The sub bass then takes over as the song builds to its drop.
The bass synths are what truly set this record apart. Mize utilizes punishing bass in a variety of melodic riffs, giving the song incredible groove and danceability. He continues to create incredibly complex basses that suck the listener into his world. Every Mize record tells a story, and we as the listeners are along for the ride.
“Refraction,” along with other recent releases, is a prime example of the balance Mize brings to his production. His combination of floating, trance-like toplines and punishing, distorted bass is becoming his signature sound, and this is a testament to the dubstep and trance artists from earlier this century that so heavily influence his sound. His ability to pull from his inspirations while putting out a fresh, captivating project is astounding. It is extremely apparent why Mize is poised to become one of bass music’s biggest rising stars.
This single comes as Mize and other producers are announcing shows and festivals in bunches following the easing of COVID-19 protocols. Mize is one of Wakaan’s newest artists, and we are incredibly excited to see him at some upcoming Wakaan stage takeovers. We’ll be sure to be on the lookout for “Refraction” and other crazy Mize ID’s in these upcoming sets.
