Dynamic duo RIOT continues their impressive run on Gud Vibrations with one of their most ambitious pieces yet. The release marks the sixth offering on the label in under three years and furthers the sonic realm of their catalog with pulse-racing drum & bass and cinematic soundscapes.

Meditate” expands upon the definition of the word, offering listeners an intricate and ever-evolving auditory adventure. Chunky drums, pulsing bass, and hip-hop-inspired vocal loops combine to set the stage. Roaring jump-up drum & bass elements kick the expedition into high gear with a fierce and furious pace. Layers of bent vocals conjure an uplifting and inspiring vibe before the track transforms once more. Elsewhere, the lush and relaxing instrumentation under the spoken-word vocal narration is nothing short of serene. Orchestral strings further the epicness of “Meditate” while guiding it into the darkness. Bouncing halftime rhythms bleed into devastating dubstep that proceeds to evolve back into a D&B form. Following its peak, RIOT provides a calming outro to allow for a total mental reset.

They provide deeper insight behind the single, saying “‘Meditate’ is quite a journey. Spent a lot of time and effort on the smallest details of this production. From working on it during our live streams, to Slander teasing it live for the past few months now. Gud Vibrations just feels like the right fit. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed working on it!”

Israeli-born and raised production duo RIOT, powered by members Tom Davidson and Daniel Magid, recently relocated to Los Angeles to bring their mix of progressive melodies and heavy basslines to the music capital of the world.
