Hekler (real name Shaun Bacus) has always taken a unique approach to his music. Toiling away tirelessly in the studio, Hekler brings a prolific pallet of influences, spanning hip-hop to bass music, ambient pieces and much more. He looks to masters of their craft, like Lorn, Mike Dean, Lisa Bella Donna and Clams Casino, to propel his robust productions forward. His cornerstone tracks like “Astral featuring Jeleel,” “Transparency,” and “404” afford listeners a look at what can happen when bass volatility and expert composition live in explosive harmony. Harrowing bass, bouncy toplines, and genuine artistry all live under one roof in Hekler’s house. Industry support continues to pour in for Hekler, alongside collaboration recruits from Ekali, GRAVEDGR, YOOKiE and more.With high-profile sightings at EDC, HARD Summer, Bonnaroo, Red Rocks, Rampage Festival, Escape—just to name a few—Hekler’s keeping ears perked cross-continentally. In early 2023 one of his most important, undertaking yet, his debut LP ABYSS on Bassrush Records, followed by his most recent body of work; ‘HEK SZN’ EP also out on Bassrush Records released Oct 2023. Hekler continues to have one lucid, overarching goal: to harness each ounce of artistic background and wisdom at his disposal. At the top of 2024 his release with OddKidOut ‘Original Steppa’ featuring Scruffizer has already garnished wide support, receiving Bass Arcade cover on Spotify on release day and several other editorial playlist support.
