First Listen: Crankdat unfurls emotionally charged, dynamic single, ‘Falling’

First Listen: Crankdat unfurls emotionally charged, dynamic single, ‘Falling’Crankdat Steven Haddad

Crankdat has returned with newest single “Falling,” sure to be a new fixture in his live sets. The Ohio-based music maker is known for his multi-colored production propensity. Whether he’s releasing rock-ready electronic tracks, heavy-hitting dubstep, or lighter crossover tunes, Crankdat has a proven track record lending his green thumb to multi-genre production vines. “Falling” serves as a continuation of his audacious experimental pursuits.

Initially, the listener sees Crankdat tap into his ethereal side thanks to an opening primed with lofty vocals and matching, minimal bell synths, which allow the poignant lyrics to shine through. A minute into the release, a quickening of pace yields an uptick in energy and the entrance of exasperating video game synth work, a seamless addition to the release’s chosen label housing, Monstercat’s sprawling trophy case of game-y tunes. The drop sees Crankdat draw from a variety of inspirations including monstrous ad libs and an ebbing and flowing bass line that keeps the listener engaged through moments of reprieve from the harder-hitting elements.

Crankdat recently spoke to Dancing Astronaut about the release:

“‘Falling’ was a ton of fun to produce.  I haven’t done a melodic song since ‘Do You Mind,’ and I really wanted to make something powerful that also makes you feel something.  The last drop is one of my favorites I’ve ever done.”

“Falling” follows Crankdat’s two-track Halloween-centric EP, Fearworld, as well as his return to Monstercat records.

Crankdat releases monstrous ‘Fearworld’ EP just ahead of Halloween

Crankdat releases monstrous ‘Fearworld’ EP just ahead of HalloweenCrankdat Mo Bamba Re Crank

Crankdat is known for his ability to procure hard-hitting dubstep songs right alongside lighter crossover tracks, wielding finer elements of his harder style and welding them into delicately crafted vocal-led releases. The Ohio-based artist has just released a two-track EP titled Fearworld, just days before Halloween. The dark releases are the perfect pair of songs to get listeners in the mood for the day fine-tuned for freakishness.

If Halloween could be embodied by a track, “Horror Hour” would be the perfect releases to enlist for the job. Crankdat employs an eerie choir alongside a meticulous build until the track explodes into a monstrous drop. The main event features screeching synths, heavy bass, and shrieking vocals all of which imbue a nostalgic, gamey era of dubstep that lingers long after the song’s conclusion.

“Phantom Cry” is arrives ready to spew its dastardly delicious entrails. Crankdat twists dubstep screeches like a howling beast alongside foreboding organ emissions. Manic cackling and shrills synths ring like a bass-riddled omen.

NGHTMRE douses Alison Wonderland and Dillon Francis’ ‘Lost My Mind’ in melodic dubstep

Few producers could rethink Alison Wonderland and Dillon Francis‘ lethal collaboration “Lost My Mind” with the unbridled audacity of bass connoisseur NGHTMRE. The DJ/producer has risen to the upper echelons of the dance space for his improbably impactful bass cuts. His take on the high-profile original surely doesn’t spare listeners from the heavy drops they’ve grown accustomed to from the Gud Vibrations boss.

Juxtaposed with Wonderland’s light, emotion-filled vocal moments, not dissimilar to the original, NGHTMRE’s rendition is tender at times, though torrential at its core. The track is apt to become a seamless addition to his prolific festival repertoire for the remainder of the summer and thereafter.

NGHTMRE is fresh off a multi-pronged remix package for his A$AP Ferg collaboration, “Red Light,” featuring offerings by Holy Goof, Effin, and Crankdat. NGHTMRE’s remix is out now on Francis’ IDGAFOS.

NGHTMRE has taken his career to the next level in 2019, especially when it comes to showing off his versatility. The producer has teamed up with everyone from A$AP Ferg, to Lil Jon, to Shaquille O’Neal under his DJ Diesel moniker, staying true to the heavy-hitting bass ethos he’s built through his catalog while creating a new dynamic via hip-hop collaboration and further infusion into his style.

Earlier this year NGHTMRE showcased this new direction with collaboration with A$AP Ferg, “REDLIGHT,” which is undeniably one of his biggest hits. He’s continued to celebrate the single’s success with a fresh batch of remixes from Crankdat, Holy Goof, and Effin that make the single more friendly for a festival main stage. This new batch follows up a recent re-work from Flosstradamus.

Each remixer puts their own unique spin on the “REDLIGHT.” Crankdat twists the release into a dubstep sizzler with screeching synths and heavy drops. Holy Goof goes the bass house route, while Effin also stays true to his low end-fueled aesthetic for his rendition.

NGHTMRE recently announced a new contest for those who are fans looking to see him live and win a new comic book. The contest enlists fans to create a video to accompany “REDLIGHT,” and ten winners will be selected to win two tickets to a show in addition to NGHTMRE’s comic book.
