After ushering in a new chapter to his cyber whale project with the single “Royalty (feat. Diandra Faye),” bass prodigy Whales returned to Monstercat today with his melodic dubstep single, “Addicted.” The new record puts his diverse stylings on display, mixing airy vocal chops with gritty bass punches for a shimmering festival anthem. Aligned with his project revamp, “Addicted” furthers Whales’ vision to balance his signature heavy sounds with weightless melodic styles that he’ll continue to unveil on the label.
Whales shares, “‘Addicted’ has been in the works for over a year, and I’m so excited to share it with everyone. Being able to play it again at Lost Lands 2022 and seeing an even bigger reaction than the first was so special for me.”
Known for his dark, melodic sound which incorporates elements of fluttery basslines and hard-hitting synths, Whales has become a notable force in the bass genre. His tender harmonies are juxtaposed by intense eclectic melodies and captivating percussion. Each track keeps fans enthralled with a variety of styles including future bass feels and intense dubstep heaters.
Whales has been musically gifted from the young age of 7, when he picked up his first instrument, and later would excel by teaching himself how to master electronic music production. Whales fully immersed himself in music during several hardships he faced during his life, and the struggles he encountered motivated him to produce music that would help him heal and ultimately inspire others.
As an artist who refuses to pigeonhole his vision, has worked with Excision, Shaquille O’Neal, Kayzo and has been featured in Forbes, BBC, YourEDM, and UKF.
His independent tracks and collaborations have gathered over one billion plays, all helping define his unique sound and furthermore supporting consistent demand to play shows worldwide. Most recently, Whales’ track ‘Dead To Me’ peaked in the top 100 on Spotify’s Global Electronic chart and has also reached YouTube’s ‘Top 20 Songs in the United States’ Chart.
With a growing fanbase, curiosity for experimenting with different methods of production, and unrelenting determination for the success of his project, the sky is the limit for Whales’s trajectory of success.
