In just over a year since their apparition on SoundCloud, helloworld has already racked up some serious accolades. A collaboration with Pauline Herr to kick things off, a release on Slander’s Heaven Sent Records, and an official remix for Flux Pavilion are among the standouts from the artist’s impressive discography, and the rest of their individual work shines just as bright. A glitchy, mechanical and euphoric take on bass can be used to describe helloworld’s sound, but each track is so much more than that, and the artist’s brand new EP, warning signs, is all one needs to fully grasp the extent of their talent.
Comprised of the two previously-released singles ‘warning signs’ and ‘dive in,’ the warning signs EP is a five-track journey into the sound of helloworld. Utilizing influence from genres spanning from trap to dubstep, the warning signs EP is an eclectic mixture of styles that demonstrates the producer’s knack for creating something special. Choppy, cascading rhythms are common themes in each production, yet each one takes a unique approach, whether in its melodies, percussion, or beyond, to make the project cohesive from start to finish, but not repetitive. From the crunchy, rugged bass that takes center-stage in ‘dive in’ to the softer, vocal-driven portions in ‘falling down,’ the project offers something that will resonate with many.
Don’t miss the warning signs EP, out today via Bassrush Records.
