Bass house boss Habstrakt just self released his first complete album titled Heritage, out now on all platforms.


Known prominently for his bumpin' dance floor bangers, the LA-based producer delivers his debut album with even more range.



Born in France, Habstrakt began pursuing a full time career in music shortly after he discovered dubstep in 2008. He had always had a passion for music and unique visual arts, which allowed him to distinguish himself and accel in the music industry. He's become well known around the globe, playing to massive crowds at world renowned festivals and amassing over a 100 Million streams across all platforms.

Heritage is packed full of the sick house tracks Habstrakt dominates in producing, but also has songs that really show his versatility as a producer. He covers a wide range of genres and styles that allows the album to flow and feel more like a story.


After the intro track this album starts off with Tonight, a groovy bass house tune to get your heart rate up right away. Then comes Outer Space, a catchy collaboration with Roderick Porter, which was recently released as a single back in November.


From here, the house vibes die down a bit. Call Me (ft. Notelle) has a slower, more seductive feel to it. Libre (a long-awaited track with IMANU) and Juicy (a collaboration with NOON) blend together different styles, including both trap and house elements.


Just Like The Rest of Us acts as a sort of hypnotizing transition into the future hood classic Molotov (a collaboration with house legend Malaa). Molotov was released earlier this month, and it goes without saying that these two producers brought the heat on this one.

Following the interlude is Hostile. This song stands out from the first beat. It starts off with a guitar riff and mixes this classic sound with innovative electronic elements and catchy vocal leads. Hostile is a solid example of the extensive production capabilities Habstrakt possesses.


The final stretch of songs includes three house bangers and two more chill tracks. Vision, Don't Worry (a collaboration with Plastic Toy), and Paradise all bring that classic lift-you-up energy Habstrakt has mastered encapsulating. Last but certainly not least, Épilogue winds down the album with emotional, ambient sounds.


This album is everything we hoped it would be and more. It really shows sides of Habstrakt we haven't seen before.

"From the heaviest to the deepest, I hope people will resonate with the album, and find their favorite record inside in the process," Habstrakt said. “It’s a journey through the past, the present and the future of my vision.”

Heritage is sure to be on repeat around the world for the foreseeable future, and with that being said, we can't wait to see what the future of Habstrakt's vision has in store.


Catch the legend himself live on tour at one of his upcoming stops, and stream Heritage now on all platforms.
