What better way to start off the summer with an awesome new EP from David Heartbreak, one of the most consistent and innovative producers in today’s world of bass music. With years of producing experience under his belt, it may finally be David Heartbreak’s time to shine with his brand new release, The Foundation EP. It was only released this week on Skrillex‘s OWSLA record label, and has already received a lot of support left and right.
I think the best way for me to describe how diverse and thrilling this EP really sounds is with some of David Heartbreak’s words of his own, in a recent interview with Moombroton:
“I think if you listen to a lot of different genres, you eventually want to create different genres. I love music as a whole; EDM, reggae and hip hop, so it makes sense to me to fuse the genres.”
And this is exactly what David Heartbreak did with The Foundation EP. The EP starts out with a chill, ambient tribute to reggae and moombahton. This soft paced, relaxing introduction is nothing like the rest of the EP, and gives us a first glimpse at how genre-defying this EP can really sound. I was blown away by the aggressive dubstep/trap energy from “Yardcore Pressure”, which quickly led into the electrifying tracks “Acid Youths” and “Boogie Monster”. I couldn’t narrow down a favorite on the EP, but was more than impressed with each individual track on The Foundation EP.
If you’ve been listening to David Heartbreak for a while now, you may be aware that he has already released over 20 EP’s and is continuing to evolve and build on his unmatched, innovative sound.
