Perry Wayne is rising fast. With several hits on record labels such as Subsidia, Disciple, and Dim Mak, his heavy style and increasingly distinctive sound design have earned him the support of artists such as Excision, SLANDER, and Bear Grillz, as well as a slot at the coveted dubstep Disneyland, Lost Lands music festival. His latest release, “Embers,” out now on Gud Vibrations, is part of an EP being released via the record label, founded by SLANDER and NGHTMRE. Releasing a monster collaboration with Riot Ten last year, and with an EP on the horizon via Gud Vibrations, Perry Wayne is rapidly building his catalog of bass music bangers and blazing an impressive trail through the world of dubstep. When asked for comment on his newest single, Perry Wayne had this to say:
“Embers” is the second installment of my EP coming with Gud Vibrations soon! I’m very excited to be a part of the Gud Vibrations Family, and share this art with all of you.” – Perry Wayne
The tune begins with a rhythmic guitar lead and drums before a vocal cuts in, the vocalist sings about lost love, stating “I know I couldn’t save you, but I cannot let go” and “you’re stuck in my head” setting a tone of heartbreak and loss for the track. The vocal fades out just before the drop, and a bone-crushing bassline cuts in, bringing savage heaviness and wild aggression.
Perry Wayne showcases the sound that has driven his meteoric rise in the world of dubstep, with violent but not too chaotic sound design and brutal snares, driving the juggernaut of a tune forward. Truly, a blessing for headbangers and those who love to mosh, “Embers” smoothly and expertly blends melody and aggression. The vocal cuts back in as the first drop concludes, repeating the refrain once more before leading into a second drop. That second drop is as heavy as the first, with an altered synth lead, but the same complexity and aggression.
“Embers” is a distinct high-energy dance floor destroyer that is certain to be included in the heaviest of sets come this summer’s festival season.
