A Hundred Drums, the dubstep project from Gabrielle Watson, has become a household name in the bass world over the past year. A HIHF-favorite, she has had an incredible and well-deserved breakout year in 2021. Her debut Deadbeats release, Enough is Enough, was a powerful message to the community as she took you on a journey through both historical learning and bass-fueled sound. Today, A Hundred Drums returns to Deadbeats for her next big single, “If I Have To.”

Teaming up with vocalist Saule, A Hundred Drums returns to her roots of a true audio experience. Percussions are heard immediately as Saule brings forth a beautiful entrance. Seconds later, the dark and unique beat punches you right in the chest. Bass, drums, and low ends are combined with some of the craziest sounds possible. This remains heavily consistent with what she has been able to offer in her past works. When the bass hits you the hardest, you’re left gasping for air.

A Hundred Drums combines all elements of her signature sound and amps it up to another level on this new Deadbeats assisted single. The addition of Saule brings an emotional pull like none other and proves what kind of talent is brought to the table when A Hundred Drums collaborates with a just as passionate artist.

This year, A Hundred Drums will be playing the biggest stages in the country, like Ultra Music FestivalElectric ForestLightning in a BottleBonnaroo, Okeechobee, and tons more. We are so excited to see what amazing things she continues to do throughout 2022.
