DRRTYWULVZ releases new EP ‘Imaginary’
DRRTYWULVZ, pronounced dirty wolves, is the electronic brainchild of Austin-based producer Levi Witt. The budding producer’s sophomore EP, Imaginary, is full of unique basslines, uplifting melodies, and downtempo ambience.
“Throttle” is my personal favorite on Imaginary, as it seamlessly incorporates a beautiful ambience with delicious bass whomps. “Lullaby” keeps up the whompy vibe as its bass spirals around a lullaby of euphonic sound. “Rise” is one of the most up-beat tracks on the EP and its ideal for shredding up a psychedelic dance floor.
The 6-track EP exemplifies the producer’s versatility, as it’s appropriate for both the dance floor and the reflection at the end of the night. Levi has been producing music for many years now and his strong musical background is reflected in the versatility of Imaginary.
“I began producing music early in life, I was a drummer in a church band around the age of 12, which soon transitioned into garage bands and various solo music projects involving guitar, piano and synthesizers,” Levi said. “I recorded and engineered my first full-length album when I was 14 years old with an old PC my parents had. I moved to Austin for audio engineering school when I was 17, and the electronic music started to happen.”
If you’re a fan of this sound, keep an eye out for DRRTYWULVZ full-length album that is already in the works. Levi said he plans to switch up the style of the next release to portray a more energetic, danceable tone.
“Both of my first EPs (Imaginary and PUP EP) have focused on ‘beautiful’ or ‘feel good’ sounds, though the next release will be a lot more energetic and danceable, along the line of Psydub, Glitch Hop and Downtempo Bass music,” Levi said.
DRRTYWULZ will be sharing the stage with Space Jesus, and one of his musical inspirations Kalya Scintilla at The Parish in Austin on March 30th. He also plans to make festival appearances this summer so keep an eye out for great things from this budding producer.
