Eptic made his debut on Monstercat with ‘Let It Go’ with Dillon Francis earlier this month, and now the Belgian import is back with his second dub-heavy single ‘Power’. The new track is aptly named, and not for the faint of hear – -even before the drop, it delivers a frenetic fusion of stabbing synths and video game-esque sound effects that will make you feel like you’re whopping on Koopa Troopas in Super Mario Bros. Combine this initial energy with a breakdown filled with mechanical, serrating bass lines and spastic vocal riffs, and ‘Power’ is a hybrid dubstep killer that will ignite dance floors around the globe. Both ‘Let It Go’ and ‘Power’ will be featured on Eptic‘s forthcoming ‘Flesh & Blood’ EP. Check out what Eptic had to say about the new release below, and keep an eye out for its animated music video dropping soon:
“I’m not gonna lie, it took me a while to figure out this song. I wrote the drop pretty early on in progress, but I couldn’t get the mix or intro right. It was only after I was about to give up and really reflected on my own production skills that I tried a different approach and could make it work. I’m proud to say that after all this ‘Power’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever made – production and songwriting wise, and it really set the standard for all the other tracks on this EP.” – Eptic
