REAPER continues to cast commotion and mystery as the masked producer makes his fourth appearance on Bassrush Records with “IMY” featuring Bella Renee. The poised DJ, named one of Dancing Astronaut‘s Artists to Watch in 2021, is restlessly ascending the ranks of bass music by virtue of his annihilating drum ‘n’ bass crossovers such as his May rework of Nitepunk‘s “Miracle” and his three-track MILITIA EP, released in July. Speaking on the single, REAPER shared,
“‘IMY’ is the intersection of some of my favorite elements of dance music. The angelic vocals that lead into heavy, churning basslines perfectly describes the resilient attitude of the song. I’ve always been impressed that Bassrush seeks out and shares drum and bass, and I’m excited that they will be expanding their dnb palette with the release of IMY. Can’t wait to bring some dnb flavor to some Bassrush events soon!”
The anonymous drum ‘n’ bass phenom voyages through a battlefield of emotions and rhythms as “IMY” combines distorted guitar melodies, impassioned vocals, and high-intensity drum grooves in order to generate unprecedented grounds for the UK-originating genre. The single yet again underscores REAPER’s constant efforts to bring drum ‘n’ bass to higher prominence and honor. Hear him in action below.
