Anonymous producer REAPER has risen to become one of the key breakout stars in the ever-expanding drum & bass scene in America.
“CALL MY NAME” sees him getting back to basics on an infectious jump up anthem. The single serves as a direct follow-up to his debut album ‘DISRUPTOR,’ which was released on Bassrush Records last year to critical acclaim.
“CALL MY NAME” is a testament to REAPER’s mastery over the drum and bass genre. The catchy vocal hook creates a sense of distinct longing and deep connection. The simplicity of the lyrics amplifies the addictiveness and impact while provoking necessary repeat listens.
Evocative melodies and crisp claps lay the foundation before pulse-spiking risers prime listeners for the energetic drops. REAPER escalates the energy to new heights with driving percussive rhythms, floor-filling low-end, and his signature distorted power riffs. The vocals echo through for an infectious and emotive effect that intensifies the impact. In an era of overproduced bass music, “CALL MY NAME” cuts through with impeccable execution and pristine production. Expect this record to be rattling stages all festival season long.
REAPER reflects on the return to his roots stating: “I spent months cultivating new ideas for the REAPER sound palette. The result overcomplicated my process so much that I returned to my roots and wrote this catchy, energetic jump-up record. It’s a simple idea, with maybe only 15 tracks in the project. That simplicity made it infectious and stuck with me. Sometimes I try too hard to sound over-impressive, which sucks the soul out of the song. ‘CALL MY NAME’ challenged me to stop overthinking and trust the direction and clarity of my less complicated ideas. K.I.S.S.”
The ever-mysterious REAPER has taken the bass scene by storm, quickly catapulting himself into the upper echelon of drum & bass in North America and beyond. He’s hot off a string of European debut shows, including sold-out nights in Paris and Toulouse. The appearances follow an impressive run that featured sets at EDC Orlando, Countdown, Nocturnal Wonderland, and support for Kayzo on his back-to-back North American tours in 2021 and 2022. Festival season is shaping up strong with upcoming performances at EDC Las Vegas, Forbidden Kingdom, and more to be announced.
REAPER’s new single “CALL MY NAME” is available on all platforms via Bassrush Records.
