A lot of artists have had a great 2018, among them riddim and dubstep artist SVDDEN DEATH. (Yes, we’re now differentiating from riddim and dubstep. Get over it.) While SVDDEN DEATH is by no means new to the scene, thanks to tours with Snails and Borgore, and plenty of festival bookings, his clout has rocketed up this year.

In 2019, SVDDEN DEATH is going to set sail on his first Holy Ship! in January. Before the big day – coming up in just a few weeks – we caught up with the young bass blaster to ask about his past year, what he expects in 2019, and more.

Listen to his latest EP, VOYD Vol 1, and keep scrolling to read our interview below.

As the year comes to an end, what do you know now that you wished you knew 12 months ago?

I wish I knew that flat earth was real so I didn’t spend all my time thinking about sitting on a big ass ball.

What sorts of experiences are you looking forward to in 2019?

I’m really excited for all the festivals I’m playing, and Holy Ship at the beginning of the year. I’m really stoked for taking new elements into my live performances as well.

Speaking of Holy Ship, are you excited? Have you ever been on a cruise before?

I’ve never been on a cruise or a ship of that caliber. I’ve learned how to sail small ships but at the end of the day I’m terrified of the ocean lol. There are squids in there. I am really excited to be on the ship though, everything I’ve heard makes it sound like an insane experience.

There are so many bass artists on your ship, who do you think you might hop up and do an impromptu B2B with?

I would love to b2b with my boy Snails.

You’ve just done a remix for Marshmello & Bastille. Were you a fan of the original?

I’m a huge fan of the original, and I was really stoked to give my own spin to it. I put a lot of effort into the remix and making it sound good at a quarter of the speed as the original as well as adding new melodic and heavy elements. Overall I’m really satisfied with the outcome.

What plans for your music do you have in 2019?

Voyd vol 2.
