Ethereal vocals and gritty bass production can oftentimes gel in fascinating ways. Gaszia and Sooski’s new joint EP, Pre-Faze is a strong testament.
Gaszia achieved success in electronic music as one half of boundary-pushing duo X&G, who announced their split earlier in 2022. Over the past eight years, X&G’s brand of bold and experimental bass music took them to stages across the world and led to numerous high-profile collaborations, like one with Skrillex and Boys Noize’s Dog Blood.
Now, Gaszia has made his return to tastemaker label KUMO Collective, teaming up with British singer-songwriter Sooski for Pre-Faze, a three-track EP that solidifies him as an act to watch.
KUMO's 100th release, Pre-Faze is a mesmerizing journey through heavenly vocals and otherworldly bass production, masterfully blending the styles of the two artists. The EP’s opener “Ride” is driven by Sooski’s moody and elegant vocal performance, while Gaszia’s maximalist production takes the front seat.
