Lavier has provided three more reasons why he deserves your undivided attention on his latest body of work, Artifacts.
Not many artists can confidently say they have mastered multiple genres. For Lavier, on the other hand, all styles are fair game. From trap to lo-fi, this artist is no stranger to pushing boundaries with his sound. Lavier has been continually turning heads in the underground bass scene. His talent and determination are only going to keep on piquing the curiosity of those around him for years to come.
2023 has already proven that people crave Lavier. Other respected artists have dropped his tracks left and right so far this festival season. Not only that, but his name keeps appearing on lineups across the globe, like those of Elements Festival and Autumn Revival. To top it all off, just last weekend, he blessed the lucky ears present at Sound Haven with classics as well as fresh, new tracks that left them eager for more.
He didn’t make fans wait long to hear the newest delectable tracks they’ve been hearing at countless sets. He’s released his latest EP, Artifacts via the well-respected Wormhole Music Group. With his recent EP Simple Questions, Long Answers dropping just this May, it was quite a pleasant surprise to be able to revel in more new sounds so quickly. This three-track EP packs an impressive punch of variety within its short runtime.
Dark and dirty is the main course on Artifacts, and “Plug Me In” is up to the plate first. Tiptoe along to the intro before you’re greeted by the sonic equivalent of strobe lights. A feeling of uncertainty creeps into the back of your mind as each eerie layer passes by.
“Midnight” comes in and kicks the dirty side into high gear with a sexy assortment of percussion that’ll leave you utterly speechless. Last but certainly not least, “Ugly” is not here to play games. Morphing the dirty and dark themes seamlessly together, this track emits enough low-end frequencies to satisfy you for weeks. Addictive wordplay will put you in a trance as each passing “yeah” comes intertwined with deep, warbled bass that transports you deeper into Lavier’s clutches.
Artifacts is out everywhere now. Head to Spotify or your preferred platform to take a journey with Lavier in the driver’s seat.
