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

Published

on

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!

Nytrix And Au5 Reunite For Melodic, Bass Single “Always In A Nightmare”

Nytrix And Au5 Reunite For Melodic, Bass Single "Always In A Nightmare"
Prepare to enter the matrix with Au5 and Nytrix‘s brand new release “Always In A Nightmare”, the powerful follow-up to their first collaboration “Only in a Dream”. Through cinematic soundscapes that create a video game-esque sonic journey through light into the dark and back, the single bends both genres and minds. Au5 delivers a combination of glittering melodies and electro and trap-influenced basslines that serve as the captivating backdrop to Nytrix’s equally stunning vocals. “Always In A Nightmare” showcases both artists’ respective talents, which have only gotten better since their original team-up. The official music video takes the track’s digital reality inspired sounds one step further, creating a real audiovisual experience for fans. Let’s hope Au5 and Nytrix make this series a three-peat! “Always In A Nightmare” is out now on Monstercat; check out what both artists have to say about the new track below:

“Working with Au5 is always an artistically expanding experience. I feel like we both really aim to make a story through soundscape and lyric. In a way, when we made these songs, it was almost like working on a large painting. It was also fascinating to make Part 2 of a song. I have never done that before.” – Nytrix.

“Upon hearing the acapella, I was immediately inspired to get to work. The song kind of writes itself when I hear a vocal acapella that I strongly resonate with. Collaborating with Nytrix is always a blast. We tend to gravitate towards a similar sonic aesthetic, and we both have a strong artistic vision. I’m looking forward to seeing what our next big project beholds!” – Au5

LA-based producer and singer Nytrix has crafted a signature future bass sound that has found a home on labels such as Monstercat, NCS, Dim Mak, and Proximity. He first exploded onto the scene in 2015 with his debut EP “Take Me Higher,” which climbed the Billboard Dance Chart to #7 and featured remixes by the likes of R3HAB, Sikdope, Dave Aude and D.O.D. His love for visual art is evident in the music videos for his tracks, which he directs and edits himself. The video for “Take Me Higher” aired on MTV clubland, broke into the Top 100 Chart on Beatport and was featured on Tiesto’s “Clublife” radio show. Nytrix is also vocally skilled, lending his voice to the successful viral hit “Stay Here Forever,” which has amassed over 1.5M views on YouTube. This triple threat has been expanding his imprint by opening for heavyweights like Carnage, Afrojack, and Kesha, as well as performing at venues such as Sundown Music Festival alongside, R3HAB, Cedric Gervais, Tommy Trash and NGHTMRE. Austin Collins, better known as Au5, has been releasing music for over 9 years, with over 100 songs released on Wakaan, NCS, Monstercat. Music has always been a lifelong love affair for Au5, who started playing piano at the age of 4, which he quickly followed with bass guitar and music production. After touring with Infected Mushroom, Liquid Stranger, Seven Lions, and more, Au5 has created a reputation as a skilled artist whose sound is constantly evolving. Keep your eye on both Au5 and Nytrix – two names we expect to be in many headlines this year.

GRAVEDGR
is notorious for producing some of the heaviest music in the game, but it seems he’s outdone himself on his newest single “MOVE”. Teaming up with German producer Krischvn, GRAVEDGR takes his listeners on an intense sonic journey that begins with warped, menacing vocals that build into his most hard-hitting drop yet. The cacophony of reverberating basslines, screeching synths, and heavy kickdrums make “MOVE” a track that was born for live sets, which is precisely what GRAVEDGR wanted. “MOVE” is his first collaboration with Krischvn, who has previously released on Dim Mak, and Never Say Die. It’s also the final single release before the upcoming debut LP “6 FEET UNDER,” which will be released on February 21st. GRAVEDGR is currently on the road for his “6 FEET UNDER” tour, so snag your tickets for the chance to get rocked by his new track in person!

“The song was made intentionally to create the wildest and craziest mosh pits. When you hear the song, you are supposed to MOVE – NO ONE STANDING STILL!” – GRAVEDGR
