Ephwurd is back with a new banger which fuses new sounds with old roots in a classic 90s dance style tune appropriately dubbed “Hectic” alongside LA-based bass breaks producer Swage. Swage has seen releases on Dim Mak and Play Me Records, as well as collaborations with Ghastly and Hami. Though his technical prowess may be new, it’s still expertly refined and adds just the right vibe to this buoyantly heavy release.
“Hectic” instantly begins with savory harmonic synths chopping to its relentlessly uplifting beat. Vocals by SNAP drift into the mix pointing out the obvious, “It’s gettin’ kinda hectic”. The pressure rises and the song finally breaks with a snappy refrain before building once more into an abrasive yet minimalist halftime dubstep drop. The style stays true to its nostalgic essence yet remains classically Ephwurd.
This collaboration is a first for Ephwurd and Swage, but we sure hope it’s not the last. “Hectic” is a surefire hit to be tearing up dancefloors this season. If you haven’t already, give “Hectic” a listen, out now on Ephwurd’s own Eph’d Up Records.
