Crave’s latest premiere comes from Heavygrinder, who return this week with the Setsuna EP (order). The Los Angeles duo of DJ Heavygrinder and partner Nek0 meld electronica and metal for an unholy union, purist preciousness be damned.
After having made a presence at festivals such as Coachella and EDC, Heavygrinder releases are a regular presence on Beatport charts, with the collaboration with Yoji Biomehanica “Alone” reaching the #1 spot on the Hard Dance chart, the single “Lovesick Hypocrite” reaching #16 on the Electro House chart, and “Children of the Night” topping at #5 on the Dubstep Top 100, just to name a few.
“This new EP signifies the beginning of a new chapter in the Heavygrinder story,” Nek0 explains before the project’s release. “We’re fusing our blend of Metal and Electronica with Kawaii-Metal and Japanese-Pop, and the result is something fresh which we are very proud of. There’s also a new look to the group — as portrayed on the EP’s artwork — which is itself a story to follow along with our future releases.”
