Today, ShockOne has given fans the second look into his very own Dark machine world with the release of ‘Bleed Black‘, featuring the vocals of Cruz Patterson.
Speaking on the release of the follow up to 2017’s A Dark Machine, ShockOne explains how he wanted to extend “on themes present in the first single A Dark Machine, Bleed Black goes a step deeper inside the machine.”
“I collaborated with vocalist Cruz Patterson, of Fremantle band Koi Child on this one and what he came out with lyrically continues the Dark Machine narrative perfectly, and is also just straight fire stylistically speaking. I’ve been sitting on this song for a while so I just can’t wait to share it with the world.”
Cruz Patterson adds how he has “been a fan of ShockOne since I was a young bass head trying to bribe my way into DnB events back in Cape Town.” Adding, “So when I heard he was interested in having me feature on a track, I got to work straight away in the hope that I wouldn’t miss such a great opportunity. It’s truly a great honour.”
A Dark Machine was a great single for ShockOne, so it is good to see ShockOne has returned with such a solid effort. ShockOne and Cruz Patterson have put together a solid collaboration of dark, electronic drum beats, filtered with great vocal work from Cruz. 2018 looks to be a big year for ShockOne with more releases scheduled soon.
