Origin: United States
Although the origins of G-REX can be dated back to 2015, 2018 was certainly a breakout year for Detroit native producer, Jake Sweeney. As he worked to perfect his brand of high energy trap and bass fused with sinister dubstep sound design, he honed in on a deep dark sound that has become a recognizable signature in his music and earned him the respect and support of leaders in the scene. In September 2018 he released one of the biggest bass music tracks of the year, “Babatunde,” as a collaboration with friend and fellow bass music phenom, PEEKABOO, on Liquid Stranger’s record label, WAKAAN. He then followed up with his debut four track RIFT EP, also on WAKAAN, as well a recent collaboration with Ghastly.
2019 sees G-REX’s first major tour appearance as support on Liquid Stranger’s 36 date INFINITY TOUR January through March, the release of his second EP, and a handful of singles including official remixes and collaborations with major players in the bass music scene.
While many continue to regurgitate the same stale sounds, G-REX is here to usher in a new era of cold-blooded bass.
