Following explosive singles such as “Salvo” and “Decennary,” rising trailblazer GunFight has just created bass music heaven with “Ride.”
Currently based in Los Angeles and hailing from Austin, Texas, GunFight has been cementing himself as one of bass music’s most exciting up-and-comers over the past years, methodically unveiling single after single while capturing the attention of various industry professionals, as well as an ever-growing and engaged fanbase.
While GunFight’s recent success shines the brightest, the bass music mastermind has been releasing music for almost a decade now, with his debut official EP Infinite landing on streaming platforms back in 2014. Following a small hiatus, GunFight went on to release two albums throughout 2017 with Rouse and Paramount, that nicely displayed his genre-bending style over a total of 15 combined tracks.
Since early 2020, GunFight has been immensely consistent with his music releases while setting the blueprint for how independent artists should go about growing their careers. With almost 30 singles under his belt over these past three years, GunFight has explored a myriad of bass music genres, while maintaining a cohesive visual aesthetic that is extremely well-stylized, and features dystopian, post-apocalyptic and cyberpunk-inspired art.
GunFight’s visualizer choices are as impressive as his music, which has earned him support from the likes of Don Diablo, Cedric Gervais, Jauz, Slushii, Craze, Lost Frequencies and Zeds Dead. Ranging from drum & bass, dubstep and electro house to more niche genres like synthwave, drumstep and midtempo, GunFight’s catalog is unconventional and versatile while being characterized by a unified sonic direction.
GunFight’s brand new single “Ride” makes for the perfect example of his music production prowess and might be one of his heaviest to date. A breaks tune with cinematic intros and distorted drops, “Ride” follows a unique arrangement while transitioning from section to section at light speed.
Eerie atmospheres and groovy drums kick off the single, followed by a buildup that sounds like the soundtrack to a shooter game. The drop is as meticulous as it is explosive, with the final result being a ruthless bass music anthem that we can’t get enough of.
“Ride” marks GunFight’s third single of 2023, and certainly not the last. If his previous years are any indication, we can surely expect a lot more bangers from the talented producer to drop over the coming months, as it looks like he’s far from slowing down anytime soon.
