DJ-producer, Sullivan King, has been capturing the world by storm with his unique metal bass sound. The talented producer is currently on the road with popular music star, Excision, on his Apex Tour. He recently released his new EP, The Demented, which has strongly left an impact on the dubstep/bass community. He is definitely an artist that everyone should listen to at least once in their life. If you are looking to break your neck continuously without any breaks, then his music is the one for you. We recently met up with the artist after his performance at South Florida's newest music festival, Forbidden Kingdom. We spoke about his performance, The Demented EP, New Music, his love for the guitar, and much more.

“First, I wanted to thank you for doing this interview. This is the first ever Forbidden Kingdom Music Festival. What was it like to be a part of the first experience of it all?”

Sullivan King
“It was really awesome. I played last year here at the same venue with Excision on his Paradox Tour, but this was kind of like a somewhat bigger production and there's a little more of a theme and everything. Everybody was super excited for the lineup. It's always cool to have more people on it and being able to hang out with all your friends and you just get a better vibe. So it was really cool.”

EDM Sauce
“That actually brings me to my next question. So you're currently on Excision's Apex Tour and you're opening up for him. How is it like to be able to perform with him again?”

Sullivan King
“It's definitely one of those kinds of dream come true things when I first got into music, being able to do a whole cross country tour with basically the biggest name in Dubstep right now. We've just been having a great time and meeting the other two guys, HE$H and SQUNTO, have been awesome to hang with and perform with every night. And, of course, me and Jeff have tracks together, so we've gotten to go up and perform, “Wake Up” together and it's just been really cool to see how the crowd reacts to that.”

EDM Sauce
“You recently released your EP, The Demented. What inspired you to create it?”

Sullivan King
“Good question. I mean, it was really just a few songs and ideas that I was working on that didn't necessarily fit in with the whole Dubstep community for the most part, sort of the sounds that people were gravitating towards. It was something that I kinda vocally wanted to challenge myself with, wanting to kind of structurally change things up. It was kind of just inspired by pushing things out of the normal kind of build up drop kind of thing.”

EDM Sauce
“Aside from The Demented EP, is there any new music coming our way?”

Sullivan King
“Tons of new music! Way, way, way, way, way too much music! We're actually trying to figure out how we're going to fit this all in. I just did a really awesome cover of “Save the World” that's going to come out soon. We've also got a collab with Kai Wachi and a lot of originals. We've got a lot of really cool stuff.”

EDM Sauce
“Obviously, from what I saw from your performance, you are an expert at playing the guitar. How long have you been playing the guitar and why did you choose to learn it?”

Sullivan King
“I've been playing a little over 13 years and I kind of started playing because I was bored and wanted to do something other than just sitting at home. Something to change things up. My brother started playing drums and I thought, okay, well maybe I'll hop on guitar or do something and we'll jam. It was a sort of a pass the time kind of thing growing up. I've developed a huge love for it. There's definitely some stepping stones that you have to take in order to really get to a point where you can say okay, maybe I can actually do this thing.”

EDM Sauce
“This may be a little off topic, but is there a particular song that you're currently listening to right now?”

Sullivan King
“I'm really excited about the new Periphery record. They just put out a new song called “Blood Eagle” and it's a very heavy sort of progressive metal track. That's definitely been something that's been on my playlist for the last few days.”

EDM Sauce
“Is there any collaborations you would love to do, maybe with any metal or alternative bands?”

Sullivan King
“For bands? Absolutely. There's a ton of people I'd loved to work with. I'd love to do something with Bring Me the Horizon. Like I said, Periphery is really awesome. I'd love to do something with really anybody in that realm. For the most part, I really enjoy the vocalist from Like Moths to Flames. I think he's got a really awesome voice. Definitely something like that would be great.”
