Valentino Khan and Kayzo‘s new track “Novocaine” should come with a warning label: not for the faint of heart (or hearing). Prepare for an assault to the senses from the start of the track, which begins with intense hardstyle-influenced percussion. Khan uses this as a warm up to deliver jarring, distorted synths and a heavy dose of bass, melding elements of trap and drum & bass to make “Novocaine” a hybrid of modern bass music.
The track, which is out on Diplo‘s Mad Decent record label, follows a huge announcement from Khan: he will be playing his biggest live show to date at the Hollywood Palladium on March 9th, joining the ranks of legendary artists who have graced the iconic venue’s decks before him. Attendees can expect to hear new music like “Novocaine” as well as Khan‘s popular tracks from the last year, including “Feel Your Love” and “Lick It.”
