The bad brothers of bass music, YOOKiE are returning to Kannibalen Records with the eclectic talent that is Miami’s Nitti Gritti. Together they are ushering listeners to the end of the world with their Earth-shattering cataclysm, “Apocalypse.”
Unrelenting, unforgiving and full of bone-crunching basslines, “Apocalypse” will annihilate dancefloors across the globe. With YOOKiE’s heavy sensibilities and Nitti Gritti’s own savvy for making hits thanks to collaborations with top A-list acts like Diplo, Enrique Iglesias and Bad Bunny, this leviathan is alluring in its minimalist composition, yet striking in its power. An aphotic atmosphere ushers us forward in the intro before dark, divine drums rumble ominously. Before you know it, the bass explodes in an all out mind-melting anthem.
“This is the soundtrack for when the world ends.” – YOOKiE
“YOOKiE told me about this world ending bass track because they used one of my 808s in, and then we just decided to finish the track together. I’m stoked to release this monster!” – Nitti Gritti
YOOKiE consists of brothers Anthony and Christopher Alfaro from New York. With releases on Never Say Die, Kannibalen Records, Disciple, Bassrush, Spinnin, Firepower, and Buygore, these bass brothers have long been top talents in the dance music world. Despite their young age, they’ve shaped the world of trap and dubstep with their jaw-dropping productions.
Pushing a hybrid sound, these two have brought their heavy hits all over North America on their own headlining tours and through such festivals as EDC Las Vegas, Ever After, Goldrush and more. With support from such acts as Annie Nightingale, Black Tiger Sex Machine, NGHTMRE, Excision. Borgore, Seven Lions, Zeds Dead and many more, YOOKiE have cemented themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the dance music community at large.
