Drezo shares ‘Dead,’ the harrowing lead single from his forthcoming EP
Drezo‘s formative rise through the west coast’s flourishing underground house and tech scene has been an impressive progression to watch unfold. The LA-based producer has brought his infectiously eerie, warehouse-primed brand of house music to labels like Mad Decent and OWSLA, but for his latest project, he’s taking the full control of the reins with a new independently released EP, Jaded, out in full July 14. To roll out the forthcoming three-track collection, Drezo has dropped off a blistering new original cut titled “Dead.”
In signature Drezo fashion, the track opens with a pumping kick and a textured hum that gradually builds into an aggressive growl leading into the break. The “Guap” producer chops up a characteristically punchy yet simple sample selection on his latest, as “Dead” drops into an oscillating barrage of snarling chords designed for packed festival tents and sweaty after hours club floors alike. Much like his mentor, Dillon Francis, who has recently adopted a label-free release strategy, Drezo is coming in full force on his own this summer with Jaded, and if “Dead” is any indication, it’s going to be high caliber tech house quality from one of the genre’s brightest prospects.
