PREMIERE: HomeSick delivers a rave-ready space rap anthem with “Running on Empty” featuring So Loki
Ahead of his forthcoming release “Burnout 2099” on Defrostatica Records this Friday, March 22nd, Alberta’s resident beat wizard HomeSick has offered up his latest single, a slamming vocal collaboration with Canadian rap duo So Loki entitled “Running on Empty”. Since emerging with releases on labels ranging from Philadelphia-based American grime imprint Seclusiasis to Russia’s rave & bass outlet Internetghetto, HomeSick has been steadily supplying the footwork, jungle, and drum & bass community with critical spastic bangers and destructive amen breaks.
In recent years, he’s been a big favorite of outlets like The Footwork Jungle, Thump, and Red Bull Music (He’s even a Red Bull Music Academy Alumnus from the 2015 session), and with good reason. His style is unapologetic, bold, and raw, with nods to dancehall and dembow just as much as Noisia-style sound design. His music draws influence from intelligent beat-making, but keeps the focus on the dance floor with what can only be described as an infectious but convulsive groove.
Without further ado, we’re proud to present today’s Booms and Claps single, “Running on Empty”. Make sure you cop the full release this Friday when it drops on Defrostatica Records in all the standard retailers! You can pre-order the release in both digital and vinyl formats on Bandcamp right now.
