Bass authority Crankdat is back with a special treat for fans, dropping his first electro house single in nearly five years, with “Power Stone” on Monstercat. Created to bring some diversity to his live sets, the track’s high-energy distortion sits between the aggressive dubstep and melodic bass styles he’s been praised for. “Power Stone” follows last month’s “Ding Dong,” his cheeky take on the Sidetalk “Bing Bong” videos that earned support from heavyweights like DJ Diesel, Zeds Dead, and Illenium.

Crankdat shares, “My new song “Power Stone” is a 130 BPM electro house record that I made to put some energy into my live sets. Hope you guys like it!”
Earlier this month, Crankdat played to a packed crowd at Avalon in Los Angeles, alongside TYNAN, Cyclops, and Careless Castle. This weekend, he’ll make his in-person debut at Tomorrowland on the Monstercat Stage, followed by an Ibiza play in August and a November run in Houston and Dallas with Tisoki and Cyclops. Needless to say he’s returning to the live arena in a big way, with more dates to be announced soon.
Gear up. It’s what fuels the Crankdat project to its very core and embodies what 22-year-old Christian Smith is inspiring others to do on a daily basis. In just a few years, the multi-faceted Ohio-based artist has amassed nearly a quarter of a billion total streams, toured 4 continents, and has played hundreds of shows — more than a dozen of which reside in Las Vegas where he holds a Hakkasan Group residency. His originals and remixes dominate the festival circuit with heavy rinsing from Marshmello, DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, and many more. Beyond producing and DJing, though, Smith is a true creative. From designing his own artwork to animating and executing his own live show visuals, the Crankdat experience is coming from none other than the creator himself. He is the physical embodiment of what he preaches, having an independent mindset and self-starter mentality that encourages hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
