stratus - power up ep

Get ready for some of the most ear-blood-inducing tracks you’ve heard in quite some time, as Smog newcomer Stratus releases a three track EP entitled Power Up.

The EP begins with the title track that sounds like if Skrillex and 12th Planet had a baby, and then that baby made actually had some demon Datsik baby inside of it. In other words, it’s pretty fuckin’ filthy.

Next up is “YES,” a melodic trap tune with some middle-eastern influences throughout. “YES,” is definitely the type of track I could see knocking out a festival crowd throughout this summer.

Finally, we have “Bermuda,” a track that is by far the dirtiest song on the EP and a song that is a crossbreed of dubstep, trap, and even a little trance at the top.

Overall, I’d have to say the people at Smog Records continue to prove their quality of taste in young up-and-coming artists like Stratus. As always, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this young talent, as he’s sure to make waves in the year future.
