Mersiv begins rolling out highly-anticipated debut album with dark downtempo number, ‘Forest Creature’
The past month has been a busy one for Mersiv, who is in the fast lane to “EDM” superstardom. Heading into his third straight weekend of shows, it is safe to say the bass music creator is positioning himself rightly toward being the “King Of The Underground,” so to speak. This weekend, Anderson Gallegos makes his descent onto Mishawaka Amphitheater for two deleterious evenings of Pretty, Dark, Loud madness, which is the titled to his incoming debut studio album. He will be doing so with a newly released track under his belt called “Forest Creature,” which he debuted live while at Sound Haven.
Released today under Mersiv’s MorFlo Records label, “Forest Creature” is the first official preview into Gallegos’ upcoming Pretty Dark Loud album. The all-instrumental song features fellow Colorado producer Killa Nova as the two combine to pull on a range of jungle and tribal sonics. Mersiv’s most recent sets, most notably his Sound Haven “Slow Down” set, already serve as indications of how much he has been evolving his sound, and the new single is no different.
The track intros with coos and caws that one might hear in a Jurassic Park simulator, which all float over a rather mysterious flute melody. Listeners are then beckoned in with those signature Mersiv bass flares, as the sonic forest around them thickens. In an Instagram post, Mersiv dubbed “Forest Creature” as “the dark single from the album,” which induced some instant online speculation among his rapid fanbase.
Does this mean we can expect Pretty Dark Loud to matriculate into a three-part sonnet? One that contains a dark side, a pretty side, and a loud side? Only those attending Mersiv’s official listening party inside Denver’s The Black Box this Sunday, August 15 will know.
As fans lie in anticipation for the release of Pretty Dark Loud, they should be keeping their eyes and ears peeled to the live music scene for any and all previews of this collection which is sure to be nothing less than groundbreaking.

The Mersiv Sound Project is the brainchild of Anderson Benoit Gallegos. The Producer/DJ has been developing a unique Pretty Dark Loud style of bass music since he started his musical journey in 2015. The intentions of this project are to bring people into the present moment through a Mersiv experience.
The Mersiv Sound Project took off at Electric Forest 2018, where his multi-set showing displayed budding sound and his affinity for live performance. In Summer of 2019, he debuted with the Digital Eden EP, and subsequently landed his breakout-single, “Beautiful & Filthy,” with the WAKAAN label (1.6 Million+ Stream on Spotify). This would spur the 50-plus date Beautiful & Filthy Tour, and highly anticipated sets at Shambhala, Bonnaroo, Zeds Dead’s Dead Rocks, & Okeechobee Music Festival.
Gallegos is also head curator of MorFlo Records, a platform designed to showcase those tapping into flow through art. Leading into 2021, Mersiv crossed the threshold of 2 million plays on Soundcloud and averages 110k+ monthly listeners on Spotify.
This Fall, Mersiv is set to unveil his debut album, Pretty Dark Loud, which will deliver his full interpretation and defining moment for the Mersiv Sound Project. Through this pivotal chapter, he looks to put his undisputed stamp at the forefront of the Freeform genre of EDM.
