A lot of the dubstep artists I listened to in 2011-2014, that are still actively releasing, have felt pressure from fans and trends to hop on the riddim train. I don’t blame them, an artist’s gotta eat, y’know? But it still left me wanting for the classic sounds of guys like Doctor P, Zomboy, 12th Planet, and more.


Thankfully, the pendulum is beginning to swing back the other way. In stark contrast to Zomboy’s only other track in 2018, “Rebel Bass,” his new track out this weekend “Lone Wolf” represents a true return to form for the producer.

“The bass music scene, however wonderful and broad, can often get a little tired,” Zomboy told Billboard Dance. “This is only to be expected when something this popular attracts so many new and hungry producers. In the current climate a lot of the groove and energy has been substituted for a harder, simpler and more aggressive sound.”

Calling back to his Game Time and Dead Symphonic days, “Lone Wolf” is a frenetic and wildly melodic ride devoid of any swampy synths or monotonous drum rhythms. The beat is as chaotic as the synths pumping through your speakers, a characteristic of Zomboy’s earlier work that we’ve definitely been missing.

Check out “Lone Wolf” below, and catch Zomboy on tour! Dates below.
