For his long-awaited single, “Mawlee,” Riot Ten combined his talents with former G-Unit rapper Young Buck as well as hip hop/EDM artist DJ Afterthought for a show-stopping, in-your-face bass track.
The wait is over Sept. 17 when “Mawlee” drops via Dim Mak Records.
The hype surrounding “Mawlee” has grown for months as videos that teased the intriguing collaboration circled social media, leaving fans begging for more.
At just under three minutes, the track’s sultry bassline puts listeners into a trance as Young Buck’s explosive vocals punctuated by trumpet bursts send shockwaves that will wreak havoc on dance floors and the entire festival scene.
“Mawlee” comes after an already groundbreaking year for the El Paso-born dance music artist. Riot Ten released his sophomore album, “Hype Or Die: Homecoming” this summer before embarking on the nationwide Hype Or Die 2021 Tour that runs through December.
“Creating this song was honestly the most fun I’ve had with a record in a long time. Experimenting with all-new sounds while keeping it simple – yet engaging and effective – was really a test. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Getting Young Buck on the track, who I’ve been a fan of for over a decade, was the icing on the cake. He absolutely nailed it. My boy Afterthought came in with the finishing touches. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a record since ‘Rail Breaker,’” said Riot Ten.
To say that “Mawlee” matches the energy of “Rail Breaker” is remarkable. The 2017 single became one of the most played dubstep songs of the decade and set the stage for Riot Ten’s 2018 hugely successful debut EP with Dim Mak called Hype Or Die: The Dead. Yet the collaboration between Riot Ten and hip hop powerhouses Young Buck and DJ Afterthought is certainly a pivotal movement for Riot Ten’s already illustrious career in electronic dance music.
“Electronic music gives me this undeniable party vibe that brings out the beast. The energy of this record is unmatched,” said platinum-selling rapper and “Mawlee” collaborator Young Buck.
