Vancouver-based Joachim Speidel and Stuart Brookes, better known as WE ARE FURY, have teamed up with Bowen Sanderson A.K.A. NXSTY, and Quebec rapper Wasiu to create a festival-ready trap anthem. With both parties having support from the likes of Skrillex, Excision, The Chainsmokers, Illenium and more, "Mortal" is the perfect example of balance between boundary-pushing sound design and melodic lyricism. This song has been a staple in both WE ARE FURY and NXSTY's summer festival sets, and now its time to bring that energy to you.
WE ARE FURY commented on the track saying:
"We heard of this 18-year-old from Vancouver who was making crazy music a year ago and we decided to reach out and see if we could make something. NXSTY has a very distinct sound and we think he is next up from all the bass artists in Vancouver. He is an absolute beast in the studio and working on 'Mortal' together was refreshing as well as super fun. Funny enough, we linked with Wasiu on YouTube comments and he sent us back the verses shortly after. It was game over after that."
