Over 3 years ago, I discovered the soulful bass music maestro, Gladkill, and I was blown away by one of his first remixes. Fast forward to today, and now, this budding artist has his new Accolades EP to add to his lengthy catalog of outstanding music, countless tour dates under his belt, and a new record label, Foundations Recordings, to call his own.
With this release, Gladkill stays true to his musical roots, while traversing through bass music, hip hop and trap influences, R&B, deep house, garage, 2-step and downtempo for a diverse collection of six new songs. It’s an impressive and refreshing release from front to back, and the strong vibes will keep you coming back for more. Purchase the EP on iTunes and pick up the GDD™ exclusive free download of “Let U Go” HERE.
This week’s guest mix comes courtesy of the Oakland resident and bass music maestro, Gladkill. After seeing him kick off his Summer festival season as a headliner for the sold-out Lucidity Festival, I was certain that we needed to feature him. If you’re not already familiar with Gladkill, he has built a name around his soulful brand of melodic dubstep that provides for an emotive, down-to-earth vibe. He launches his brand new mix series, “Sessions,” that serves to showcase some of his new original music while exploring sonic and spacial territories.
In the midst of this guest mix and his recent performances, he has been deep in the studio gearing up for a stacked schedule of more live dates and festivals including Lightning in a Bottle, Shambhala, Bounce Festival and Enchanted Forest, among others. Enjoy this mix, and keep an eye out for future installments of his mix series, as well as a new release due out in Fall 2013.
