Pacific northwest native Austin Kane, better known as Warden, combines a plethora of genre’s from jackin’ house, to berlin techno, trap and more to create his new EP, ‘Emerge’. As a man of many sounds, this four track EP is truly a breath of fresh air for listeners of all genres alike.
Made up of previously released singles ‘Control’ and ‘Black’, the EP is also comprised of tracks ‘Disfunction’ and ‘Work’. EP standout ‘Black’ is an eerie and wistful track that bridges the gap between bass music and techno. ‘Disfunction’ opens with upbeat synths topped with robotic vocals that build into hard-hitting basslines. ‘Control’ brings a dance-infused flair into the mix with bass infused beats falling into pulsing electro-drops that are sure to keep listeners quick on their feet. Progressive House track ‘Work’ brings fast-paced synths with booming kicks while captivating listeners with one simple question, ‘can you work?’
‘When it comes time to start writing an EP I like to approach it with a solid idea of how I want the atmosphere to feel. I really wanted to create a sense of dark creepy unease followed by powerful heavy drops. I also like to combine different elements from different genres to challenge the listener into maybe liking something they never thought they would. Emerge really sets the tone for what’s to come with Warden and I hope everyone is ready. Enjoy.’
Never scared to infiltrate a new range of sounds to captivate listeners with, Warden establishes a dark and heavy atmosphere filled with slick basslines for ‘Emerge’. Warden possesses a diverse and unique sound with influences that range from techno, drum and bass, and even hip-hop.
With releases on Fresh Blood, Pinnacle Collective, and Fool’s Gold the growing support for Warden’s artistic ability knows no bounds. Having toured with Borgore, and sharing the stage with the likes of Marshmello, Adventure Club, Deorro, Steve Aoki and more, it is quickly becoming clear that Warden is the one true bass medium.
