ZEKE BEATS debuts on WAKAAN with new four-track EP Vigil. Transversing the realm of chaos and innovation, Vigil is anything but ordinary. ZEKE BEATS demonstrates his vast expertise and precision production with four unstoppable tracks that easily stand on their own. Each track offers a refreshing sound that stimulates the listener. “Cheeky” is overrun with seismic bass-lines and his rampant signature scratching while “Vigil” explodes with unnerving synth-work. “Unhinged” is suitably titled with its manic sound design and “Selektah” warps the senses with its glitchy bass-lines and effervescent nature. Overall, ZEKE BEATS’ Vigil EP is a distinguished addition to his discography.
ZEKE BEATS adds: “During dark times throughout our lives, we must remain resilient and vigilant for what is important… The Vigil EP will take you on a journey from tongue-in-cheek to complete chaos & destruction. Don’t sleep on this 👁”
If these tracks sound familiar, they have been performed by WAKAAN label head Liquid Stranger and ZEKE BEATS on his first phase of his headline ‘Vigil’ tour. In addition, ZEKE BEATS has kept busy with large scale festivals across the country such as Wobbleland, Bass Canyon, Evolutions Festival, and more to follow.
