    Edgewoode returns to Deceast for his second single on the label with two tracks of funked-out, 808-laden bass music. “Me x You” opens with sparse percussion and soft synth pads before the bass hits and a masterfully melodic lead takes over. Tastefully programmed 808 drums anchor the progression, with just enough hi-hat and snare workouts to fully represent Edgewoode’s hometown Atlanta influence.

    “Ride or Die” brings a decidedly dirty south vibe with its razor-sharp horn stabs, booming 808 bass and skittering drums. Once again, Edgewoode’s music chops are on full display with another great, funky synth lead. This song easily fits in alongside a wide array of likeminded music: “Ride or Die” could be a lost instrumental from Outkast’s Aquemini sessions, a production by Dr Dre’s latest protege, or the other half of a split single featuring Joker on the A side.

    Both of these are well suited for the headphones, the club, and especially the ride. We hope you enjoy the music and can’t wait to share more from Edgewoode in 2013.

    About Edgewoode
    Edgewoode is a new music project from Anthony Rotella, a producer and DJ well-known for his longtime contributions to both drum & bass and dubstep under his Mayhem moniker. As one of the longest-running American bass music artists, Anthony has a long list of achievements as Mayhem. He’s released music on marquee labels like Ram Records and Human Imprint, played a crucial role in establishing forward-thinking music scenes in his native Atlanta and across the United States, and collaborated with highly respected artists like Noisia and Phace.

    Anthony has established Edgewoode as an outlet for his music that isn’t defined by the aggressive, dancefloor-oriented mindset he’s known for as Mayhem. This is the second outing of his Edgewoode persona on Deceast and we’re looking forward to helping him diversify as an artist through this new project.
