Detroit home towner/Los Angeles transplant PEEKABOO liberated his version of Liquid Stranger‘s dubstep anthem “Hotbox” via WAKAAN. PEEKABOO constructed an andante, sphinxlike buildup. This causes the creation’s mutinous climax to be magnified; envision Interstate 405 during a Monday at 5 p.m.
On May 4, PEEKABOO’s Matthew Lucas dropped the four-track Imposters EP which garnered attention from the likes of Dancing Astronaut, The Untz, EDM Sauce and Magnetic Magazine. Matthew’s 2017 collaboration with Bassnectar, “Disrupt The System” (ft. Azeem), cumulated more than half a million Spotify streams.
“I was really honored when Martin [Liquid Stranger] handed over the stems,” said Lucas. “He said only do this if you can 100% smash it, so obviously a lot of pressure. I went through three versions of it and finally came out with this one.”
