“The OG” marks Ghastly‘s first release of the calendar year, as well as his first official release with Kannibalen Records. As the festival circuit begins to restart, the LA-based DJ offers a hardstyle gem as the flagship single on his forthcoming EP. The Prodigy Artists signee is scheduled to perform at Ubbi Dubbi in Dallas on the weekend of April 24, the first major dance festival to take place in the US in 2021.
Farmhand-turned-electronic-heavyweight, Ghastly’s mission to define dance music by his own standards is sharply upheld by “The OG.” The hardstyle bass record, which precedes an impending four-track EP due later this year, opens with a beautifully dark melodic soundscape that gradually morphs into a high-octane festival hit. The track’s eerie vocal samples soon become immersed in an intensifying build up, racing toward a frenzied, yet intricate bass drop.
Prepare for Ghastly’s triumphant return to festival stages—and his upcoming EP—with “The OG” below.
