Bass music phenom and Wakaan prodigy, Sully, debuts his latest work, “Duck Hummus” today. Spanning just over 3-minutes in length, the single propels his reputation for dark, melodic dubstep as well as his status as one of the more promising up-and-coming acts in the genre. Sully (real name Chris “Sully” Sullivant) developed his production skills early on as a student at Icon Collective. While attending, he was named Student of the Year in KSHMR’s class, and was ultimately featured on the Sounds of KSHMR Vol. 3 sample pack. Sullivant would deliver his first track as Sully in March of 2019, “Frequency Shift.” The track fused neuro-dnb with wobbly bass production, offering fans something new and exciting. Last November, he followed up his hyped debut with a 7-track Break the Floor EP, which found its release with Wakaan.
“Duck Hummus” continues Sully’s penchant for high-octane single releases, and offers fans insight into this next stage of his career. The track opens with a pitter-patter drum arrangement, accented a few moments later by a wonky introductory bassline. 20 seconds in, the collective beat picks up and builds like a progressive rock track. At the :45 mark, cascading drums orchestrate a hyped build into the drop. The drop itself sonically resembles his past work, coalescing wonky bass rhythms with a driving production pattern. “Duck Hummus” is fit to move crowds and incite headbanging mobs, but in a time of social distancing, it will do in validating the hype behind this talented young producer.
Quote from Sully:
“The name “Duck Hummus” started as a joke from a group of fans to describe bass music a few years back. That same group of fans always tried to convince me to name a song after the term over the years and I always declined. While I was on the Ascension Tour, I wrote this track on an off day before a show at the Orange Peel in Asheville and named it “Duck Hummus” as a joke. After playing it out live and listening to the song more, I realized that the sound design started to feel like the track title so I just rolled with it. Who doesn't love hummus anyway?”
Los Angeles-based artist Chris “Sully” Sullivant is the next rising talent making waves in the bass music scene with his dark, yet melodic approach to producing. Early on, Sully spent time pioneering his musical identity at Icon Collective. Despite not releasing any music for almost two years, the producer stayed far from quiet. While attending Icon, Sully was recruited to work on KSHMR’s latest sample pack “Sounds of KSHMR Vol. 3” and was named Student of the Year in his class. In March 2019, Sully released his debut single ‘Frequency Shift’, which has accumulated more than 100,000 plays and caught the attention of the bass music community for its unique, hard-hitting melodic bass grooves. Sully followed up his debut single with the releases of ‘Break the Floor’, ‘Coast to Coast’, and ‘Quake,’ which have all resonated a positive response to his arrival. Last Fall, Sully played his first string of shows alongside LUZCID & Champagne Drip on the Double Vision Tour, then followed it up by providing support on the ASCENSION Tour w/ Liquid Stranger. Now that he is graduated and sitting on more music than ever, Sully is emerging from the shadows and into the spotlight as one of bass music’s most promising new producers.
