Buzzing on our radar for quite some time now, on the rise producer LICK, presents today a massive seven artist compilation EP on Synesthesia Records. The Synesthesia label comes to us from Paris, France and was recently created by well known feature account, The Golden Search.
Seven bass heavy tracks are among the Blood Moon collection, each more soul piercing than the next. LICK leads the EP with his track OVER. The song comes in with a striking vocal and cinematic melody that leaves us begging for more. LICK then drops us in to his signature bass lines and eerie layering. We have no trouble forgetting an ex while jamming to this unforgiving anthem.
Next up is Canadian producer, ZABO with Schizophrenia. ZABO has perviously released with the Synesthesia label and knows exactly what unique sounds to include in his mix to keep the heavy vibes rolling. The song quickly builds into a heavy, bass-driven drop, that captivates the listener, and solidifies the purpose of the track title.
Following ZABO, Social Kid presents Crystal Satellite. This track mashes a dreamy melody and with a shockingly heavy bass. Social Kid plans to follow up this release with several collaborations and a heavy dip into experimental mid tempo.
Half way through the compilation, we are struck with LA based producer duo, No Etiquette with Traveler. Listeners must buckle up for this one, for it transforms your everyday experience into a deep journey a dark and mysterious new world.
Once we return from our trip with No E, we fall into the certain intensity of KRILLA’s track, Malice. Malice is defined as the intention or desire to do evil. This is portrayed in the sinister introduction of the song. The drop reveals the aggressive side to KRILLA’s production through punching drums and a thick distorted bass-line. The drop is then complimented with an evil hip-hop styled bridge.
SWARM comes in next with his track Breathe. Derived from samples of SWARM’s own guitar playing and mashed with unique synth layers, this track births a sound we cannot resist. SWARM has been teasing his 5 track EP set to release before the end of the year and will then turn his focus to touring come 2019.
Closing out the EP strong, all the way from Denmark, is Voliik with Eclipse. Eclipse is part two of Voliik’s three track series, the last of which we can expect in October. This track starts with a weary melody that drops into a heavy pass with several memorizing qualities. Where will the story of this series take us next?
LICK has assembled seven extremely talented producers that carry a similarity to that of the dark and vibey industrial characteristics congruent with the LICK brand to be featured on this EP. Capitalizing on the momentum of this recent EP release, Lick has seized the opportunity to mark the launch of his new project, the DARK VIBE ORDER (DVO). DVO is a group of individuals that exert a genuine appreciation for and allegiance to the same heavy and atmospheric sounds that make up the movement.
In addition to the launch of DVO, LICK continues to dominate the scene with a full tour schedule booked to close out 2018. He has also been hinting loads of unreleased music. You can catch LICK with Zeds Dead on the deadbeats tour in Las Vegas come early October, getting spooky with Arizona at BOO this halloween, and ringing in the new year at Lights All Night in Dallas. LICK will also be joining forces with the Deadbeats label once again for a follow-up EP succeeding his smash hit, REVOLT and popular feature mix on deadbeats radio earlier this year.
