Listen Now: PEEKABOO “steps it up” with new tunesManiac EP PEEKABOO

Who is PEEKABOO? Those well-versed in all things bass music have likely heard of this enigmatic new act, who made his break by way of a surprise Bassnectar collaboration that sent fans into a veritable frenzy. Since the aforementioned tune, titled “Disrupt The System,” PEEKABOO has only continued to disrupt in his own ways with a series of jarring and forward-thinking bass productions.

His latest EP, MANIAC, sees the young producer in top form as he offers up four unique, left-field new pieces of music that are built for utter destruction. In particular, we’re drawn to the EP’s closer, “Step It Up,” which really ups the ante for his artistry. Three minutes of experimentalism seem to fly by as the ears are greeted with wobbly, abstract runs of bass and hollow hits of synth. He drives the track forward with encouraging vocal clips, expertly placed before each drop to elicit maximum frenzy.

“Step It Up” and the rest of MANIAC will be available on digital shelves as of July 13.

[Premiere] Shlump Teases Upcoming Album with ‘Maniac’ [Wakaan]

Shlump has had a meteoric rise over the last few years, and for very good reason. He routinely churns out block-rockin’ beats, his live performances are utterly insane, and he constantly strives to level up. While he’s currently on tour with Liquid Stranger, Bleep Bloop, and Perkulat0r, he still finds time to create.

In fact, he’s got an entire album in the works. Entitled Like A Drug, it will feature nine brand new original tracks from this champion of West Coast bass. The full release won’t be available until November 16th, but never fear; the first single is here! ‘Maniac’ is quite an appropriate title, too, as the track is straight up bonkers. Shlump’s style usually has a distinctly trap-influenced vibe, but this time he branched out and went full-on dubstep. Minimal, percussion-based intros and interludes quickly give way to raucous synths that grind across rails of sub-bass. The sound design here feels like a natural evolution of this beat hustler’s style; a similar vibe, but with different execution.

Check out the stream of ‘Maniac’ after the jump and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the full album when it drops on Wakaan next month!
