One of five record labels housed under the mega Audiophile Music Group, Audiophile XXL specializes in bottom-heavy house grooves packed with a healthy dollop of 3am weirdness. In their own words, the output is all about the “bassier side of tech-house” and all the “weird sounds in-between.” Their next release comes from L.A.-based Steady Rock, who’s debuting on the label with his bleepy, bassy Grippin’ 6 EP. Today, we’re previewing the pulsing G-house vibes of the EP’s title single.

“‘Grippin’ 6’ has a gritty vibe to it, but also a playful, groovy mood; it’s a good track to get people in the mood to party,” Steady Rock tells Insomniac. “I used good ol’ Massive and Sylenth making the EP—if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I also used my voice a lot to create a sound that takes too long for me to create in a synth. Sometimes, it’s better to just sing it!”

“I’m glad to see the crowd loving the tune,” he adds. “I had a chance to play this at Space Yacht recently, and it went off. Made ya boy crack a smile, fosho!”

Available April 20 via Audiophile XXL.
