Australian future bass King, Moonbase, is back with an electrifying new single and news of a brand-new EP.
The new cut ‘Dummy’ is vintage Moonbase – his patented dark, booming aesthetic, a mix of industrial beats, ear-bleeding drones, and a peer into the sonic dimension he reigns over supreme. The single is the first cut from a new EP – COMMANDER I – which is out August 9 via Dew Process, TRENCH, and Universal Music Australia.
As its title suggests, this new EP is one in a back to back series of COMMANDER EPs, with COMMANDER II set to drop later this year. They both follow on from the acclaimed release of the Avalanche EP in May, the record that marked Moonbase’s return to the music scene after battling brain cancer throughout 2018.
“I originally launched my career by making dope instrumental tracks and I wanted to hone in on that vibe,” says Moonbase. “Amongst all the talented rappers and singers I’ve worked with in the past, experimenting with my sound has always remained central to me. In order to usher in a new era of Moonbase music, I felt returning to my roots is what I needed to do most.”
Having already worked with the likes of Anderson Paak, Cakes Da Killa, Miss Blanks, DVNA and Merky Ace, as well as having received accolades from international outlets like Pitchfork and Skrillex’s taste-making blog Nest HQ, Moonbase is ready to continue his rise to prominence off the back of the Avalanche EP.
