ORBIT Playlist: Whipped Cream compiles 20 raucous selects, reflects on her sonic rise [Q&A]Whipped Cream Hard Summer 2017

A veritable force to be reckoned with in electronic circles, Whipped Cream has brought her blistering brand of bass from one United States city to the next in an explosive exposition of her high-octane sound. The Canadian-born producer’s festival season agenda included Baltimore’s Moonrise Festival, where she commandeered the event’s Stellar Stage. Whipped Cream’s edgy, dubstep-flecked style of bass music blared from the speakers as the rapidly rising artist delivered a ground-shaking set, which included several sonic sneak peeks of unreleased material soon to come.

Dancing Astronaut caught up with Whipped Cream for a rapid fire Q&A session, complemented by an ORBIT Playlist. Although Moonrise Festival 2019 has concluded, the intense, low-end technics of Whipped Cream’s set expand on her ORBIT Playlist, which arrives as a speaker worthy collection of cuts featuring Bassnectar, Excision, Tory Lanez, ATLiens, and more.

What catalyzed you to want to make electronic music specifically, as opposed to any other genre of music? Did you always want to become an artist and producer?

Honestly when you’re making music on a computer you can make any type of music. I wouldn’t say my project is mainly electronic music–my tastes are always evolving and there will be more records to come in the next few months that will show you what I mean by that.

I believe that I’ve been an artist since I was a young child. When I was a competitive figure skater I would express myself through music on the ice.

Do you recall the first electronic song that had an impact on you? If you do, what was it and what about the track got your attention?

I think the song that had the biggest impact on me was Active Child’s “Hanging On.” I saw it performed live the first time [I attended] a music festival and it completely blew me away.

What was your vision [for the music that you wanted to create] when you first began producing. Has that vision changed at all in the years that have followed your initial entry into the music industry?

My vision was to make exactly what I wanted from the start. Music has always given me purpose. That has not changed since day one.

You overhear a group of festival goers talking about the set you just played. How do you hope that they describe it?

My only hope is that people connect with my music and feed off the energy at my shows, [that] my music is their own experience.

What has been the biggest music industry learning experience to date for you since you’ve been active in the scene?

The biggest thing I have learned is to follow my intuition and always be open to listening and learning. I want to live like a child and create like a child.

What’s next for Whipped Cream as 2019 winds down? Do you have any other projects currently in the pipeline before year’s end?

[I shared] lot of new music [shared at] Moonrise Festival this weekend, and I absolutely can’t wait to debut some [other] new stuff. I’m also looking forward to some time off the road this fall to work on more new music.

Looking ahead, do you have one particular musical goal that you’d like to accomplish in 2020? If so, what might it be?

My goal for 2020 is to be fully at peace and share my art to the fullest [extent] I can.

RL Grime announces debut Sable Valley tour: Research & Development

RL Grime announces debut Sable Valley tour: Research & DevelopmentAmf18a 077

When people think trap music, they think RL Grime.

Ever since Henry Steinway departed from his open-format moniker Clockwork in favor of the RL Grime banner, he has served as the paragon of heavy bass. With numerous genre-defining hits like “Core” and “Tell Me,” his anvil-drops are now the basis point for the genre, and in 2019 he’s using that universal reverence to help curate rising artists via his imprint Sable Valley.

At this point, the label only has less than ten official releases in its catalog, but Steinway just announced a tour that might give a glimpse into what’s coming in the near future for Sable Valley.

The tour is entitled Research & Development, and it features a series of well-known bass enthusiasts like Baauer, Whipped Cream, KITTENS, Boombox Cartel, and more. So far, seven dates are listed with three more stops currently under wraps. Denver, Brooklyn, Dallas, and Atlanta are locked in to see the Sable Valley crew, with more stops around the US very likely to be announced soon.

View the full roster and schedule for the Research & Development tour below. Tickets have yet to go on sale, but you can sign up for info on the official Sable Valley website

WHIPPED CREAM and LICK release moody collaboration, ‘The Greatest’ [Stream]WHIPPED CREAM 2

Rising artists WHIPPED CREAM and LICK collaborated for a deliciously dark release on Zeds Dead’s own Deadbeats imprint. “The Greatest,” is moody, sinister dubstep—gripping and explosive in nature.

“The Greatest” begins with ominous trumpet-like synths and works into a drum line drop, not before a chillingly deep vocal chop claims, ‘I’m the greatest.” The track only intensifies as it progresses, an irresistible trait of a headbanger’s delight. Primal and electrifying, LICK and WHIPPED CREAM’s joint effort is a declaration from both artists, staking their claim in dirty dub game.

Listen to WHIPPED CREAM’s stunning set at EDC’s Circuit GroundsWhipped Cream Sourced From Her Facebook

Closing out a stage at EDC Las Vegas is an intimidating task for any artist, but the burgeoning WHIPPED CREAM did so with ease. The Canadian-born bass artist held nothing back as she took the festival’s Circuit Grounds stage for its final run, giving onlookers a final, enormous burst of energy with cuts like Gesaffelstein‘s “Pursuit,” Skrillex‘ remix of “Humble” by Kendrick Lamar, the RL Grime/What So Not classic “Tell Me,” and an array of her own originals. The set riled the crowd and instantly became a cult favorite among EDC goers, and now the cult favorite performance has been releases exclusively on Apple Music for all to hear and relive.

WHIPPED CREAM has seen skyrocketing success in recent years. After five years cutting her teeth on the circuit, the past couple have seen her taking the stage at mega festivals like Ultra Miami, Shambhala, and Lollapalooza all while selling out tour stops across North America. On the musical front, her recent re-work of ZHU’s “Desert Woman” ended up becoming a huge hit, while she also received widespread support for her second record on Mad Decent, “Time.” She’s established herself as a key talent to watch as she continues her ascension into the top ranks of bass music.

Following the dark and cinematic “You Wanted It,” WHIPPED CREAM flexes another twisted soundscape, “Time,” with the soothing heavy-hitting bass rumbling alongside DeathbyRomy’s ethereal vocals. The hauntingly beautiful track has been released on Diplo‘s Mad Decent imprint. Through orchestral chord progressions, menacing harmonies, and complex drum rhythms, WHIPPED CREAM continues to push her production talents toward the edge.

“‘Time’ is a record that was created to make you feel something,” WHIPPED CREAM said of her new track in a release. “When I sent Romy the record I told her to write something as if you were trying to change the world. She came back with these lyrics that sent chills all over my body. We hopped in the studio a short time after and she absolutely bodied the song. Such a joy to work with a vocalist who can complete your vision.”

Electronic artist WHIPPED CREAM has been defining her status as one of the top-tier talents to watch out for in 2019, and her most recent remix of ZHU‘s “Desert Woman” shows she has no sign of stopping. Drawing early inspiration from the likes of Boys Noize, Dog Blood, Eprom, Baauer and others, WHIPPED CREAM has been making major moves in the past few years including signing to Prodigy Artists —home to JOYRYDE, SLANDER, and NGHTMRE— and a string of music releases including her Persistence EP

WHIPPED CREAM’s remix fleshes out a sinister revamp of ZHU’s track with a hard-hitting drop that gives it all. Building up with slowed-down vocals, intense reverb, and percussive shakers, the artist delivers a frenzied, multifaceted remix with a perfect balance of glitch and punchy bass that refuses to be anything close to formulaic. Transforming a track like “Desert Woman” into an unrecognizable listen is no piece of cake, but WHIPPED CREAM’s depth as a producer continues to prove no boundaries to her evolving trap sound.

Vancouver Island-based producer WHIPPED CREAM displays her flair for the dark side with her newest single, “You Wanted It.” Inspired by her personal life, the track is ominous yet energizing, and it’s the perfect representation of WHIPPED CREAM’s hard-hitting style.

The track itself features cinematic soundscapes and her own vocals. The build is nothing short of soul-grabbing with heavy bass notes coupled with intense staccato chanting that envelop the listener. The producer spoke about her motivation behind creating the track in an official release, stating, “‘You Wanted It’ is about the memory of someone who is toxic still lingering in my mind. It’s a song to myself. I wanted it…but not anymore.”

“You Wanted It” is the beginning of a big year for the producer, and it’s out now via Mad Decent.
