Exclusive: Shadient unveils thrilling ‘COLLIDER’ on Mad Zoo
Distortion is the name of the game in Shadient‘s latest piece of work.
Following a successful debut EP in April of last year after signing with Mat Zo‘s Mad Zoo label, Shadient has continued to impress with a massive remix of Virtual Self‘s “Ghost Voices” in June and a heavy take on WAVEDASH and QUEST‘s “Devil Music” in July. His music knows no bounds, and he’s proven time and time again that he’s an up-and-coming force to be reckoned with.
Shadient’s newest, “COLLIDER,” is out on Mad Zoo on Aug. 16. “COLLIDER” pushes the electronic music envelope with its foreboding builds and distorted synths. It’s perhaps his heaviest release to date, folding eerie vocal clips into its sinister atmosphere. Incorporating a deep bass that kicks the listener in the teeth from the first drop, Shadient demonstrates why he’s been drawing attention since his first release in late 2015.
“In July 2017, I’d just returned back from playing a show with the Mad Zoo crew in LA, both my first DJ set and first time visiting the States,” Shadient says. “I flew home incredibly inspired and wrote “COLLIDER” within the space of a couple weeks. This tune was probably one of the ‘easiest to produce’ tracks I’ve ever made! It all came together so naturally. What can one expect after spending a few days in the studio with Mat Zo!”
The respect is mutual, it seems, as Mat Zo calls Shadient “one of the most original producers in the game right now” and says he’s “lucky to have him be a part of Mad Zoo.”
