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

David Lee Crow, who you more likely know as Ghastly, was born and raised on a goat farm down in Buckeye, Arizona. After struggling for a bit to make it in the industry, Ghastly met fellow local artist Mija at a show, where they discussed a potential collaboration. They wrote the song “Crank It” and Mija sent it to Skrillex, the founder of OWSLA, who then invited the pair to Burning Man with him, and signed Ghastly on his record label. From there, his career took off. After releasing a slew of both remixes and original music, he began booking festival gigs and climbing the charts. He has since relocated to Venice Beach, allowing him to launch his career as a DJ and producer, creating some of our favorite tunes.

Today, Ghastly is a well-known name in the electronic realm, releasing epic collaborations like “Hawt” with Brillz, “End of the Night,” with Nghtmre,” and “666!” with Getter. Recently, he announced his first headlining tour, along with the upcoming release of his first full-length album, The Mystifying Oracle, set to drop this May.

This week’s Relentless Beat of the Week is Ghastly’s fresh new single, “Black Mamba,” out today. Check it out below.

The track is fast-paced and aggressive, with each element of the song tying together in a massive bassline. It’s very likely we’ll hear this one at many festivals to come, as it’s sure to get an audience hyped.

If you want to catch Ghastly on his headlining tour, you’ll have several opportunities. He makes stops in TucsonPhoenix, and Albuquerque. Don’t sleep on these tickets!
