I’ve been naming Los Angeles by way of Florida production and vocalist duo Bonnie x Clyde as one to watch for the past year, and the EP they dropped earlier this month serves as fine vindication of my conviction. Their five track Wanted EP is out now on Interscope, and it features this emotionally charged behemoth of a tune named Hooked. If anyone’s hooked on anything, it’s me on this Bonnie x Clyde. A breathy ethereal yet vigorously dominant fusion of melodic dubstep, future trap, and gritty bass come together for a massively cathartic journey. Hooked’s precipitous drops and aerial climbs are beautifully breathtaking. Bonnie x Clyde’s Wanted EP can be purchased from iTunes. You can stream Hooked via Soundcloud below, too.
Elk Road, the Australian producer and founder of Deer Lane Records, straight crushes it on his dark glowering, torrid bounding new track, Come Down. Elk Road even turns in his own vocals on the infectious track despite linking up with guest talent for his releases in the past. The ruddy, muggy house on infectious Come Down and Elk Road’s own raspy seductive voice bring to mind similarly racy brooding tracks from esteemed producer ZHU. The sizzling jam is out now on iTunes. Alternate stream via Soundcloud available below.
