Gammer brings down the hammer in ‘The Drop’ EP
UK hardcore heavyweight Gammer has teamed up with Monstercat to release his forceful, four-track EP, The Drop. Though Gammer has been a consistent name in the hardcore scene for over a decade, he has only recently begun to venture beyond the characteristic sound he — and his fans — knows and loves.
The Drop showcases Gammer’s affinity for hard-hitting production, in line with the US’s recent wave of appreciation for heavy dance music. The EP showcases Gammer’s deep-seated devotion for hardcore, while he explores new avenues — particularly dubstep.
The most synergistic track on the EP is “Stay Tonight,” featuring Dylan Matthew, which is divided between rapid, pounding hardstyle kicks and dubstep breaks. Gammer toys with brostep in “The Drop” and again in “Let’s Get Crunk,” which turned heads when DJ Snake opened his Coachella set with the tune this past summer. Finally, Gammer ensures his Happy Hardcore fans can keep their feet flying across dance floors with, “Stay Tonight.”
