Devotees of graves know that the DJ/producer has been lacing his high-energy sets with emo/post-hardcore cuts since long before the genre became an en vogue punch up across the electronic space. This journalist even once received a compliment from graves on her Bring Me The Horizon t-shirt at a festival. True emos know a real one when we see it.
Today the artist teams up with vocalist Bishu for the genre-liberating "Tear Me Apart" on Thrive Music. Combining melancholic guitar licks with Bishu's yearning vocals, "Tear Me Apart" careens towards a negative space drop, dissolving into a frenzy of synths and booming drums. In honor of the release, graves has prepared a grab bag playlist of sonic textures ranging from trap and electro to incendiary rock favorites. Click play below and kick into your weekend proper.
