It’s always refreshingly pleasing to see a new female act emerge triumphant into an industry otherwise dominated by men, especially in the cut-throat electronic scene that moves so quickly it can make and break acts in a matter of moments. Los Angeles newcomer Kalipzo caught our attention by opting for a carefree, all-encompassing attitude into both her life and music, as well as being a strong advocate for both women’s and LGBTQ rights.
After the hurricane of Dubstep from a few years ago, a lot of its audience grew tired of the bass-heavy sounds and moved onto the next trend. Inspired by everything from the likes of witchcraft to Rage Against the Machine and Benny Benassi, Kalipzo effortlessly proves that there’s still so much love and passion for these bass music genres.
Initially starting out as a Dubstep producer, Kalipzo found her footing in the production scene where she met the Low Freqs crew, which inspired her true calling: Bass House. Having shared the stage with genre heavyweights Feed Me and Wolfgang Gartner, her music shares the same gripping complexity and intelligent syncopation that’ll have you moving in no time.
Latest cut I Like Cake is a tongue-in-cheek heavy hitter that balances it’s not-so-serious lyrics with an emphatic constantly evolving production, reminiscent of Feed Me and Kill The Noise’s I Do Coke. With such an impressive release for an emerging act, keep your eyes peeled for Kalipzo.
