Bass music’s sweetheart Hi I’m Ghost released “Spookier Riddim” on Monday with the Riddim Network, a long awaited sequel to the group’s debut hit track that got them recognized by dubstep fans worldwide. Championed on tour by Snails, Riot Ten, and Figure and featured on various Spotify bass playlists, the original Spooky Riddim broke into the mainstream with a serious shockwave. Ghost’s adorably spooky take on an otherwise scary genre was refreshingly new. However, the title doesn’t lie, this track is spookier.
With basslines and melodies that truly capture riddim, this track is an absolute banger. An eerie piano emerges with ominous chords that elicit horror until the sense of dread is drowned out by a satisfyingly pumping rise. Then it hits hard. The sound design and use of rhythm in this track is phenomenal. Hi I’m Ghost have done great job in pulling off a difficult feat, making a sequel as notable and iconic as the original. These guys have been on a roll recently, recently collaborating with Figure and getting booked for a multitude of EDM music festivals this summer. Make sure to check out Spookier Riddim below if you’re in the mood to get spooky.
