Bass music queen Khiva continues her 2022 hot streak with the release of “Blood Bank”, a rocking deep dub banger featuring some tasty rap vocals.
Khiva is a name that has gained more and more popularity over the last several years, and rightfully so. The Deep, Dark & Dangerous resident has been captivating both fans and artists alike with the ingenuity and expert craftsmanship that she pours into her art. Her unparalleled energy gives listeners an intimate experience that they’ll hold onto for a while – I, myself, am one of those listeners, having just witnessed her set at last weekend’s Bigfoot Electro festival in Tennessee. It was my first time ever seeing one of her sets and I am very much hooked onto her project and her sound now.
In addition to Bigfoot Electro, she has already played festivals such as Lightning in a Bottle and Okeechobee, while also supporting Boogie T‘s Red Rocks show in April and Ternion Sound‘s DEF Boiler show in February. She has some amazing sets lined up this summer for big festivals like Sonic Bloom, Electric Forest, Outlook Origins, and even Holy Ship! Wrecked. Attendees will want to make sure they circle Khiva’s name when deciding which sets to catch at these festivals. Not convinced yet? Check out the recent Playlist Takeover she put together for HeardItHereFirst to peep what she’s been bumping in her sets as of late!
Release-wise, Khiva put out a beautiful track on Valentine’s Day this year titled “Love Note” and prior to that released a two-track remix EP for her single “Swampmonster” which featured a VIP from Khiva and a stomping remix from NotLo.
“Blood Bank” is the latest tune in Khiva’s exquisite discography that once again reminds us just how talented she is. After a quick intro with a clean, hard-hitting drum loop accompanied by a hazy trumpet in the background, she jumps right in with some unbelievably fire rap lyricism. For just over two minutes, we travel through Khiva’s world via the words expressed in her art, not giving a damn about what anyone thinks and having fun while doing it. I love the blending flows of her lyricism and the instrumental in this. They come together perfectly and the end product is something that will be on repeat for a while for me.
