WHIPPED CREAMhas delivered a final parting gift for 2018, wrapped nicely and tied with a bow: “LUV.” Since debuting in 2017, she has slowly but surely making a name for herself, using this year as the time to assert her hip-hop, dark, and heavy bass-influenced style.
“LUV” is engaging from the get-go as the ultimate WHIPPED CREAM track, paired with an equally eerie fantastical video. Clocking in at less than two minutes long, the Vancouver-based artist set out to switch things up a bit with “LUV,” saying, “I combined sounds and grooves from stuff I listened to when I first got into electronic music and put it all together into one piece of work. You think you know my sound? Think again. This piece is to leave my listener with questions and wanting more.”
Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes will be a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.
This week’s selection of tunes includes new releases from Nora En Pure to TroyBoi to Morgan Page. Kicking off, Aussie duo Hermitude return for a blissful collaboration with Bibi Bourelly. Nora En Pure launches her Polynesia EP with a gorgeous song of the same name, and fellow beats queen WHIPPED CREAM goes from zero to 60 in “Bad For Me.” In “Facing the Sea,” DROELOE and Sem find themselves and “[acknowledge] that it’s going to be hard and that you’re going to struggle and that you should face those problems head-on.” Protostar and Muzzy hold nothing back on their new Monstercat drum & bass heater, “MELTDOWN.” Darude taps JVMIE for “Timeless,” a powerful trance number on Gareth Emery‘s Garuda.
The selection will be updated every Lunes (Monday).
An ominous synth pierces the silence, and looping, deep pitched vocal cuts slowly fade into focus, amplifying the eerie quality of “Blood,” the latest production to bear WHIPPED CREAM‘s name. Lesser known as Caroline Cecil, the LA-based producer drops off her first original piece in nine months, and it’s well worth the wait. A forceful effort that concentrates repeated sharp synth strikes, “Blood” melds elements of bass and dubstep, making it a logical fit for Zeds Deads‘ Deadbeats label. Dark and gritty, “Blood” is a fitting addition to Whipped Cream’s climactic catalog. Speaking on the new release, WHIPPED CREAM told Dancing Astronaut,
“I took the last nine months to properly project what goes on inside my mind and put it into my music and I’m really happy I did that as I grew a lot more into my higher self, I have always been inspired by world sound and cinematic sound. ‘Blood’ is a perfect blend of both yet also maintains an energy the human body will move to.”
While the newest addition to the Prodigy Artists roster had a relatively quiet year from the studio, “Blood” lands as the precursor to Cecil’s busy touring itinerary slated for the rest of the year. “I’m really happy to start this next chapter with this song and finish this year off with more of my new music,” WHIPPED CREAM added. “Blood” comes as 2018 begins to wind down, but for Cecil, clearly things are just beginning to heat up.
Whipped Cream and Hekler released a collaborative EP, Mirrors, last summer off Spirited. We’re revisiting and unearthing this collection of bass gold, now that the genre is diverging at various BPMs.
Teaming up with Hekler, her Mirrors EP was a bit faster paced than what Whipped Cream normally produces, but those gritty bass hits and high-end wobbles are still intact. Leaning more toward trap, the project came with a NEST HQ premiere on the single, “ITCHY HANDS.”
Whipped Cream is a Canadian DJ/producer whose released various times off Skrillex‘s Nest HQ imprint, including her 3-track project, PERSISTENCE. She was making some of that slowed down 90 BPM bass drippiness.
Hekler recently released a remix pack on Never Say Die records from his collaboration with Gladez, “404.” He’s also done official remixes for the likes of Boombox Cartel.
Things are starting to move quickly for LA-based electronic talent WHIPPED CREAM. Born Caroline Cecil, the Canadian export has been carving out her upward trajectory as a producer over the last five years, steadily building her profile behind a trap-inspired style that captures an expressive west coast influence. Now, she’s positioned for a true breakout moment, signing on to the Prodigy Artists family as their newest recruit.
Joining the same team as some of dance music’s most in-demand artists of the moment, including JOYRYDE, SLANDER, and NGHTMRE, Prodigy’s lofty ranks and tightly knit team should prove to be a fitting home for WHIPPED CREAM as she reaches the next chapter in her career. In a statement, Prodigy Artists co-founder Will Runzel expounds on the new signing,
“The first time I saw Caroline perform, I knew I was in the presence of a generational talent. Once I heard her speak about the project I saw a long-term and unique vision that only the greats possess. She won’t fit any performer archetype on the market today and I promise you won’t see anything like her on the festival circuit this summer or any other summer.”
With new management and booking powers now driving the project, as well as a number of high profile appearances slated for the summer including Electric Zoo and HARD Summer, expect major moves from WHIPPED CREAM’s camp moving forward.
Made Event‘s titanic New York-based festival, Electric Zoo, is celebrating its tenth birthday this Labor Day Weekend, August 31st–September 2nd. To mark the momentous double-digit occasion, the wildlife-themed event has added two more headlining artists in Alesso and Tiësto to join the star-studded cast of talent that already tops the 2018 bill: Kaskade, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, and Virtual Self.
Whipped Cream explores the dark depths of the bass music spectrum with “She” — a single that refuses not ground itself in any one genre category. This unique aspect, which seems the blossoming producer combining elements of drum ‘n’ bass, trap, and electronica into a cohesive work, elevates “She” above the daily mediocrity of trap singles. Released on Brillz‘s Twonk label, the single’s haunting atmosphere and “anything-goes” mentality, along with the percussion and arrangement concocts a truly dystopian them from top to bottom.
Canadian-bred Whipped Cream has emerged as one of the hottest trap acts on the LA circuit. Between raging live shows, steady popular releases, and a tasteful online presence rapidly consumed by her fan base, Whipped Cream is constantly converting bass fans into loyal followers.
Whipped Cream is one of the fastest rising producers from the LA trap scene. Her unique productions have earned her a fervent following, and she continues to outdo herself with each release.
Whipped Cream’s latest is the EP Persistence, released on NEST. The EP’s first two tracks, “Persistence” and “Ignorance,” show a more experimental side of the artist, utilizing more techno elements in her music to bring out dark bass sounds. “Selfish” takes these vibes ever farther, showcasing a single that feels like spiritually-infused acid trap with a massive drop to top it off. Whipped Cream went out of her comfort and dared to be different, the result is more than on point.
