17 Apr YDG – “Warlords” [FRESH BLOOD]
Returning to the Buygore Records sub label Fresh Blood comes a familiar face from the 2017 Fresh Blood Vol. 2 compilation widely known as YDG. Fully loaded with heavy vibrations, a hard industrial feel, and intricate sound designs, YDG’s latest musical effort “Warlords” melds the auditory with the visual. While straying away from his debut Fresh Blood release “1234”, YDG’s new single illustrates his adeptness in producing a boundless range of sounds.
Hooking listeners with a horrific, piercing ringing, “Warlords” is a culmination of bass heavy elements spliced together for a well-crafted masterpiece. What sounds like violent basslines rotating on an axel helps sustain the aggressive energy level throughout the track. Oscillating builds and arpeggiated synths dive into an eerie interlude, yielding a suspenseful sensation as listeners prepare for the explosive conclusion. Possessing a powerful electronic feel, YDG’s “Warlords” displays the jagged edge of experimental bass music.
We got a chance to ask YDG a few questions about his new song “Warlords” and what else he has planned for the rest of the year:
1. How did “Warlords” come together?
Warlords came together pretty quickly actually, I finished it in span of two days. I came up with the idea for the drop first after I found this cool violin sound. After that I knew I wanted to make a evil and heavy sounding track.
2. What is your favorite song you’ve made so far?
I feel like all my unreleased songs are my favorite. My sound has gotten a lot better over the past few months, so all my recent work ends up being the most exciting to me.
3. Which artist is your dream collab?
My dream collaboration would have to be either with Space Laces, Rezz or Skrillex (obviously lol).
4. What are your biggest goals for 2018?
For me I feel like my goals for this year would be to put out my best music, more collaborations, taking more risks, and just strive to reach my full potential.
