Sullivan King Gives Iconic Lyrics A Rock & Bass Makeover On New Track “Save The World”

Sullivan King
With his new track “Save the World”, LA-based artist Sullivan King puts a Rock and Dubstep-influenced spin on some of dance music’s most iconic lyrics. Although hard rock instrumentals and growling, dubby basslines aren’t necessarily what comes to mind upon hearing the title, Sullivan pulls it off flawlessly; the result feels entirely original with the only the very slightest sense of deja vu, guaranteed to send listeners into a frenzy when the track reaches its hedonistic apex. Sullivan King – who plays the guitar instrumentals in the track, sings, writes, and produces all of his own tracks – reflects on his inspiration for “Save the World” below.


“One of the first electro house tracks I heard was Knife Party’s remix of SHM’s ‘Save The World’ which was definitely a massive part of my intro into early 2010’s dance music. For years I wanted to find a way to make that song my own for live shows. I don’t play a lot of super well known Top 40 dance songs so when I end up throwing something like this in a set, I love giving it my own take. I toyed with ideas for this for over a year and wasn’t ever really jazzed on any of it. The day before the first show on this year’s Apex Tour with Excision, I wanted to bring something different into my sets. I finished this in about 3-4 hours and drove to Las Vegas for a show the next morning to test it out.”

Sullivan King is not about playing by the rules. The 24-year-old artist has made it his artistic work to found the “metalstep” sound, a fusion of the influential bands of his youth and the avant-garde, ever-evolving world of electronic music. King grew up listening to rock bands like From First to Last, Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for My Valentine, and Metallica, finding a sweet spot in crossing those elements with sophisticated sound design and heavy-hitting basslines. His unique music production style has helped him stand out from his peers and gain support from prolific tastemakers like The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Excision, Zeds Dead and more. “Save the World” follows Sullivan King’s “The Demented” (Kannibalen Rec.) and 2018’s “I’ll Fight Back” (Monstercat), “Shake The Ground” w/ Snails, Kill The Noise (Slugz Music); “Dropkick” (Kannibalen) and “Wake Up” w/ Excision. Stay tuned for more new music coming soon from this exciting and multi-talented young artist!
