Whipped Cream beats are anything but soft and sweet like the producer’s dessert namesake. Her original tracks and live sets often boom with a heated variety of dubstep, midtempo, and trap. WC fuels this sonic fire with her own flaming energy, urging crowds to bring it all to the dance floor. Reaper is of similar bass royalty, this time marrying dubstep and drum & bass for a formidably destructive sound. The two have combined efforts for a track they’ve titled “Shouldn’t,” which you should stop everything for and listen to below.
“Shouldn’t” yanks listeners into a d&b dark dreamland after high-pitched distorted feminine vocals that tease “I shouldn’t really.” Whipped Cream & Reaper’s 175 BPM collab demands instantaneous footwork from audiences with belligerent growling bass and effortless rhythm in the sound design. In the first drop, drum & bass shoots you into an aggressively fast-paced bpm, while the second satisfies grueling bass fans with a full and furious smack in the face. Grounded in violently fun synths and samples, “Shouldn’t” is approachable enough to entice non-d&b fans to experiment with a long-revered genre.
