Having perfected the balance between dark and immersive bass music over the years, the genre-blurring DJ and producer known as Champagne Drip returns to Bassrush Records with his new cut, “Screw Up.” After a decade of mastering the art of production, Champagne Drip’s talents have earned him releases on some of dance music’s largest imprints—including SMOG Records, Mad Decent Records, and Wakaan Music—proving just how versatile he really is. Whether he’s come for blood or offering up some euphoric, melodic vibes, he’s certain to always bring that next-level drip.
Opening up with a raw and minimalistic bassline, “Screw Up” immediately captivates listeners and keeps them wondering what’s waiting just over the horizon. Quickly moving to the drop, CD comes in with a pulverizing bassline that’s dripping in glitchy, heavy vibes that serve to distort your senses the second they make impact, before he lets up with a drum kick breakdown to ease the tension. Just then, the second drop wastes no time and comes straight for the kill with one more taste of the head-spinning drop that’s meant to transport you to a different dimension.
“I’m super stoked to have Bassrush as a home for ‘Screw Up,’” Champagne Drip tells Insomniac. “I also love how it was woven into the trailer for Countdown NYE; that was dope!”
