Ren Zukii joins the ranks of WAKAAN with undeniable presence in her reigning EP, Monarch. The experimental bass producer is a serious addition to the esteemed label with her introspective and unorthodox approach. Monarch sonically translates to a vehement body of work, cohesively spiraling through a number of interchangeable genres. Featuring four solo tracks, the EP presents a cutting edge, euphoric body of work.
Ren Zukii introduces the EP with “Deadmen,” a menacing motif that transforms into full-force experimental bass destruction. Then, demonstrates her penetrating sound design in “Monarch” with sharp synth-work and explosive percussive elements. “Reign” emerges from the depths into a sinister drum & bass heater while “Solomon” concludes the journey with sultry synths, striking bass lines and fragmented DNB grooves.
Regarding the extensive debut, Ren Zukii shares:
“The Monarch EP is a culmination of 6 years of my journey in music. I realized I could never really just write one style of music so I set off to combine everything I love about the experimental bass music scene. A lot of the inspiration for this EP came from listening to a lot of metal and watching Quentin Tarantino movies. It’s chaotic, emotional and visceral and is the first of many to come.”
Monarch EP by Ren Zukii was released on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, via WAKAAN.
