Carnage is taking the House scene by storm with the debut of his new alias GORDO and new track “KTM,“ out now on Ultra Records. “KTM” has spearheaded the launch of the GORDO project by expanding Carnage’s expansive body of work into House music. With numerous sold-out GORDO shows already under his belt, including the iconic Club Space in Miami and 2021’s Super Bowl Weekend in Tampa, GORDO has paved the way to being the most buzzed-about house DJs of 2021. “KTM” consisting of groovy bassline and catchy vocals, has been in the works for over 3 years while gaining work-in-progress support from some of the world’s top DJs, including Sebastian Ingrosso, FISHER, Diplo, and Joseph Capriati.
“There is no question that ‘KTM’ is the one track that defines exactly who I am as an artist in this exact moment in time. This song came together after years of self discovery through music and being open minded to new ways of life and inspirations. This is the beginning of the new me.” – Diamante Blackmon/Carnage/GORDO
Carnage has made a name through breaking the rules and staying true to himself. The Hawaii-based artist established himself as the reigning champion of hard bass and trap music with early hits, later being one of the first artists to transition electronic music into hip-hop, rap styles, and now House music. Before launching his label Heavyweight Records in 2017, Carnage put out hit after hit such as “I Like Tuh” with ilovemakonnen, “Bricks” with Migos, “Down for Me” and “Guala” with G-Eazy, “Homie” with Meek Mill and Yung Thug, “Learn How to Watch” with Mac Miller and MadeInTYO and “iShyne” with Lil Pump. After taking a break from music and touring in 2018 to focus on his mental health, Carnage dove right back into it with his hits “Letting People Go,” featuring Prinze George, and “Wait For Me” with G-Eazy and Wiz Khalifa. In partnership with the RAICES foundation, the music video for “Letting People Go” raised awareness for immigrants at the US / Mexico border and retraced Carnage’s family’s voyage into America, as covered by TIME and dozens of other outlets.
