For the heavy bass fanatics of the dance music scene, many grew up listening to genres like post-hardcore and metal. Nowadays, these head banging types have found a similar sound with fellow scene kid, Sullivan King. His live guitar playing, thrashing songs, and darker aesthetic make for shows reminiscent of the alternative days of lore, while still having a modern dubstep appeal. Sullivan King is rapidly attracting crowds ready to rage, and it’s not unusual to spot a mosh pit or two during his sets.
Wooli follows a similar vein of heavy sounds. With projects like his Evolution EP in collaboration with his mentor, Excision, Wooli has proven he knows how to create bone-crushing dubstep. Wooli and Sullivan King are both well respected at their craft, especially for both being fairly fresh newcomers on the scene. The two have now come together on their very first collaborative single, “Don’t Forget Me,” released via Monstercat.
The song perfectly captures the melodic sound and angst that the emo scene was so fond of while still building up heavily to a “break your neck” style drop, allowing fans to feel a full spectrum of emotions. The lyrics are simple but effective, showing the range of Sullivan King’s vocals and message. Along with some stunning guitar work, “Don’t Forget Me” features powerful synths and driving bass that keeps the pace up without wearing out listeners. The pair performed the track live for the first time recently at Forbidden Kingdom Festival and will likely be showcasing it in their upcoming sets.
