The leftfield bass duo known as EAZYBAKED just popped out of the underground to release a new EP on Liquid Stranger’s well-respected Wakaan label. The EP, titled Alone with Yourself, is a wobbly seven-track project that shows off the talents of Eric Ray and Andrew Principe (the minds behind EAZYBAKED).
You may already know this duo from the Lost Dogz—an LA-based collective of experimental trap and bass producers that had quite a breakout year in 2018. However, this isn’t EAZYBAKED’s first time on Wakaan. Just earlier this year, their track “Bandzzz” was featured on the label’s compilation album, Convoy.
With the release of Alone with Yourself, EAZYBAKED is sure to receive some well-deserved attention. As the title suggests, this project is rather introspective. In nearly every track, the duo blends thoughtful melodic moments and intriguing vocal samples with heavy, dance-inducing drops.
One highlight of the EP is “Facelift,” a wonky tune with the up-and-coming producer, G-Space. Others like “Vessel” and “Freedom” will take you into the depths of drippy, low-end music. This talented young duo is clearly showing bass fans just what they can achieve.
Relentless Beats will be bringing EAZYBAKED to Arizona in 2019 when they open for Space Jesus’ Temple of Noon Tour. Catch them this April in Phoenix, Flagstaff, or Tucson; tickets for the respective dates available here, here, and here. Be ready to get weird!
