Former Glitch Mob member Kraddy is dropping his first EP since going solo.
He is like GODZILLA to Bassnectar’s KING KONG!!!
Led Zeppelin for the Lazer Bass Generation!!
Take a listen here:
Grab a free track too, a brilliant blues vocal sample glitched out and funked up to high heaven that even Led Zeppelin, a la “Crunge” mode, would be dancin’ to.
Here’s what Kraddy says:
Putting together this EP has been really amazing. When I set out to write it I wanted it to be epic, heavy and classic. Led Zeppelin 3000 was my mantra as I wrote. Thats a high bar, so I poured everything I got into this release and I’m excited, honored and humbled to share it with you.
I’ve had so much help and support along the way I could never list everyone off. From the people closest to me everyday to the guy I hi-5ed from the stage – every one of those people has helped me make this happen. So thanks!!
Labyrinth is the next step in my progression, but not just a step, a stomp. A huge rumbling Godzilla kinda stomp. I know its been a minute since I put anything out so I made sure it was something worth waiting for. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if I succeeded.
The title of the EP, Labyrinth, is a reference to the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. I grew up playing a lot of D&D, and I was a bit of a myth geek so don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of it. Its an old myth about the hero Theseus who enters a huge complicated maze – the labyrinth. At the center of the labyrinth is the Minotaur, a monster that is half-man and half-bull. Theseus must get to the center of the maze, defeat the Minotaur, and get back out alive.
The songs on the EP are based on that myth, each song representing a different part of the story. In the next few blogs I’m going to talk about the songs on the EP, how they came together and where each song fits into the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. Check back in if you’re interested.
Thanks for listening!!!
