Following a massive year for Riot Ten, which included the release of his Hype or Die: Emergence EP and his house-focused BLKMRKT Vol.1 EP, the El Paso-based producer kicks off 2021 with ‘Poppin.' It is the first single off Riot Ten’s highly-anticipated forthcoming sophomore album, set to drop this year on Dim Mak.
‘Poppin' is Riot Ten’s latest bass-heavy single which sees him team up with Montreal’s CHRMNDRS, who was recently featured on Buygore’s Summer 2020 compilation. The two producers forged their talents together to create a festival-ready thrasher of epic proportions. To make the track really pop, Riot Ten called upon his close friend Krystall Poppin to add her energetic vocals.
“I'd been wanting to make a new obnoxiously hype record for when festivals return, and as you don't see many female rappers on dubstep songs, I reached out to my long-time friend, Krystall Poppin, to bring the vocal heat. Teaming up with CHRMNDRS, one of my favorite up-and-coming producers right now, was the cherry on top. I've been playing this one out in my live streams and mixes for a while and the response has been huge. Beyond excited for this to finally drop!” – Riot Ten
