Over the last two years, Sullivan King has gone from left-field opening act to one of the biggest inspirations for metal/dubstep crossover in all of dance music. Between all his various EPs and singles, he’s kept a consistent drive toward excellence and fan engagement that has enamored him with both tens of thousands of listeners as well as his peers (and critics).
After already releasing a stunning EP this year, Come One, Come All, as well as singles with Bear Grillz and Kill The Noise & Snails, Sullivan King returns with a new solo original and his return to Monstercat, “I’ll Fight Back.”
“I’ll Fight Back” is immediately recognized as a Sullivan King track with Sully’s own vocals in the mix, something that has become a mainstay of his music. However, rather than the swath of heavy dubstep he’s been putting out this year, this new single explores more of his hard electro side and we’re all about it. It’s not quite house, but it’s faster than typical dubstep, so call this whatever you want but it’s still awesome.
The second drop pumps up the tempo and energy even further, actually encroaching on true hard electro territory and guaranteeing both headbanging and moshing will occur – as is expected of Sullivan King’s music in any case.
Any fan of Sullivan King would do right to immediately place this in any of their playlists, just make sure you don’t let it slip into your family playlist for Thanksgiving… or do?
