Straight out of the 2021 gate, longstoryshort is making a strong case for Artist to Watch in 2022 inclusion just 15 days into the new year. For those who bookmarked the New York native, per Dancing Astronaut‘s 2019 and 2020 recommendations, this—of course—comes as no surprise. For the past two years, longstoryshort has coordinated a charged campaign to take over the bass house space, and his genre supremacy has become increasingly clear with each release.
“Dystopia,” distributed by Pilot Records, is a jaunty piece in this purpose-directed puzzle and now nestles in among longstoryshort’s 2020 string of singles such as “Raw Uncut,” not to mention the dastardly Warehouse Weapons EP.
