Premiere: i_o – Warning

It should come as no surprise that mau5trap has a reputation of quickly identifying some of electronic music’s sharpest rising talents. Under the careful watch of deadmau5 himself, the label has been instrumental in the rise of artists such as REZZ, Rinzen, and now, i_o.

For his first release on mau5trap — part of the label’s We Are Friends compilation series — the producer unleashed his electro-tinged techno tune “Warning.” Percolating arpeggios slowly announce themselves before building a concussive, rigid drop. It’s a powerful debut for the artist and one that marks i_o as a name to watch going forward.
