Space Wizard touches down into bass town on new three-track EP, ‘Cosmic Conjuring’
Mike Munnelly, aka Space Wizard, has been bringing new energy to the underground bass since emerging into the scene in 2016. We’ve had Munnelly on our radar since early 2019, eventually including him on our Rising Bass Spotlight, alongside a host of underground rising stars that are now steadily climbing the industry ladder to success.
Landing in his new home of Denver, Colorado amidst his own nationwide tour, Space Wizard looks to accent his remarkable rise with equally evolving production. On his latest EP, Cosmic Conjuring, he offers his patented wonky, experimental beats that coincide with emotional compositions throughout an interstellar story.
Space Wizard’s sound stamp has developed its reputation as one that blends together the new and old world styles of bass music. It’s this stylistic approach that has allowed him to pick up co-signs from the likes of Liquid Stranger, Mersiv, and Subtronics; the latter of which took him on a nationwide tour and slotted him as support at Red Rocks. Cosmic Conjuring holds onto to Munnelly’s signature stamp, while pushing the boundaries toward a newer, more aggressive style.
From it’s opening with “Overload” and the jarring “Drifting” to the wonky, off-kilter beats of “Impossible Meeting,” the three-tracker stands as a testament to this so-called “new era” of sound for the young artist. At the same time, there’s still those same classic Space Wizard elements that lure the listener into opening themselves up to this newer page.
Speaking to the EP, and even praising his visual artist for the project’s artwork, Munnelly explains this shift further in a press statement:
“Cosmic Conjuring is basically me turning a new page and going after a more aggressive sound while still keeping the things that make my art unique. I’ve worked really hard to separate this not only in vibe, but production quality as well from my previous releases. Aesthetics for the visual side were just as important with me making renders in unreal and working with John Pethick to create a unique EP cover. All in all, I’m super excited for this ep to be heard”– Space Wizard
The EP artwork is amazing, to be sure, but to see an artist outwardly recognize their graphic artists is something more in the industry ought to take note of. Despite already releasing on Subsidia, Bassrush, Cyclops Recordings, and WAKAAN, Space Wizard has chosen to step out on his own for this independent release and that much is certainly signaled in this more paralytic style.
