Join me in welcoming back on of Bass Musics most promising stars, Lookas, in the highly anticipated drop of his single “MERCY” out now on his very own Loko Records. Since being announced as one of Rolling Stones Top 10 acts to watch in 2016, Lookas has taken the Bass Music game by storm proving a force to be rekoned with. Since dropping the bone-chilling remix to “Tsunami” by DVBBS and Borgeous back in 2013 and later releasing as an official remix in 2017, commissioned by Ministry of Sound, many have been left with a crooked spine. More recently, he’s known for his hugely popular original “Apollo,” a collab with Crankdat titled “Game Over” and he’s also the producer on the Krewella’s current soaring single “Be There.”
After about a year-long hiatus from making music, he's back with “Mercy” and has a full EP coming out next month! In his year off he saw the rise of Trap/Bass from a subgenre to one of the most sought after sounds at festivals and radio stations. Fans are eating this stuff up! Well, welcome back homie! He finessed the crap out of “Mercy”. The melodic hybrid tune starts off slow. He had me a bit confused at first. Then WAM! It exploded with a high-pitched energetic drop, containing all the makings of a festival trap hit. In a genre that seems to be taking over soundwaves, Lookas has found what shows shades of a Trap anthem with this drop.
Lookas didn't skip a beat in his return to the game. “Mercy” is not all Lookas has in store for us this year, the next month holds promise of a very exciting EP project that will most certainly leave bass fans across the globe foaming from the mouth. Peep “Mercy” below and be on the lookout for Lookas and Loko Records as they continue their regin on Bass Music.
