After teaming up with Cesqeaux and Ben & Fil for the explosive single "Losing Myself," out on Martin Garrix's STMPD RCRDS, young producer and DJ Perk Pietrek just enlisted Stereotype for another track titled "Willow." Though released via UZ's label Quality Goods Records, the heavy hitter doesn't mark the producer's first collaboration with the imprint. He was discovered by the trap OG back in 2017 and appeared on their annual compilation, before remixing UZ & Elliphant’s "Stockholm White."
If he hadn't done so already, with "Willow" Pietrek definitely sets himself on a ones to watch list. It's an impressive effort, with a unique combination of melodic and atonic elements that are seamlessly put together. The track kicks off with playful chords and an exciting ambience, before more percussive elements are introduced. Perk Pietrek and Stereotype don't waste time as the drop comes quickly, which is filled with metallic-sounding samples that are expertly manipulated, vocal chops and distorted bass stabs. Not surprisingly, it has already received support by some of the biggest names in the scene. Don Diablo played it out at Lollapalooza 2019, and Marshmello and Skrillex unleashed it in sets at Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas and Decadence.
Petr Pietrek started releasing music as early as 2013. Having moved through a lot of different styles, the young talent from Singapore has come a long way before switching up his sound and starting to release music with Martin Garrix's STMPD RCRDS, Yellow Claw's Barong Family, and now UZ's Quality Goods Records.
