Relentless Beat of the Week: Ghastly – ‘Black Mamba’

Ghastly, also known as David Lee Crow, is proving this year that he’s the ghost with the most. The last few years have been busy for the Arizona-born artist with self-released singles and track drops on Buygore, Dim Mak, Mad Decent, and OWSLA. 2018 is looking even crazier for Ghastly as he recently announced not only his debut album (complete with 13 songs) but a tour as well!
The Mystifying Oracle is an album that Ghastly says he wrote, “through some of my happiest and darkest times and put every bit of those emotions into each song.” Ghastly’s singles give you a taste of his producing abilities but seeing him live truly sets him apart from other bass house producers. At his recent performance at the Van Buren in October he told us he pretty much played his entire new album for us, and now that a release date (May 4th) has been revealed, I’m counting down the days until I can finally hear the tracks he played during that set again. His first single from the album titled “LSD” is coming out this month, so we have something to listen to on repeat until the full album is out.
Following this already exciting news, Ghastly blew us away by revealing the dates for a tour he also calls The Mystifying Oracle. This tour will feature new “Oracle Stage production” as well as very special guests that Ghastly is keeping a secret for now. When a producer brings out his own stage production, you know he’s really going to throw down.
