MUST LISTEN: Champagne Drip demonstrates tenacity and strength in ‘Obelisk’ EP
Today’s crowded electronic music landscape can feel a lot like a jungle. It’s no easy feat hacking away at weeds in order to discover artists with a truly intriguing sound. That’s why LA-based Champagne Drip is increasingly causing a stir within the rising tide of free form bass music, lending an entirely new meaning to the experimental – yet melodic – agenda. Touching down on Liquid Stranger’s renowned WAKAAN imprint for his latest EP Obelisk, Champagne Drip builds on his growing reputation as a remarkable producer.
Combining flawless sound design with pummeling bass hits and unique synths, Obelisk EP embodies WAKAAN’s “weird and wonderful” mantra to immaculate pedigree. There’s nothing run of the mill about Champagne Drip’s signature production style, as Obelisk whirls through four energetic, feisty tracks poised to cause outright mayhem in any setting. It’s not only about dance floor appeal though, as Obelisk EP breaks down genre barriers to bridge the gap between gritty bass and melodic artistry.
Having released on Deadbeats and Quality Goods Records in the past, and released official remixes for Bassnectar, Zeds Dead, and Diplo, it’s only right that Champagne Drip’s talent continues to go recognized under the mighty WAKAAN stamp.
