Since his debut on mau5trap with “Lullaby” on the We Are Your Friends Vol. 4 compilation, Black Gummy has proven himself as a major force to be reckoned with. The LA native received, what many consider, the gold standard of production education – studying sound design under the renowned Steve Duda, and honing his strong technical abilities at Southern California's Icon Production School, home of alumni like JAUZ, NGHTMRE, SNBRN, and more. BlackGummy has just released his debut EP, Singularity, which was inspired by the idea of technological singularity, or the belief that artificial intelligence will, one day, surpass human intelligence.
While the idea of singularity may seem out of place on the record, it clearly stands front and center on the dark, gritty, industrial production on the EP. The lead track, “The Machine,” opens with a vocal sample declaring the path towards singularity before breaking down into glitchy synth stabs and crisp basslines. Other tracks like “Plucking Technology” and “Alarm” showcase BlackGummy's vast production ability. Get the EP here.
