Kantor continues to widen the scope of what to expect from him in “Blasted.” Yet with this difference in mind, the solo electronic DJ/producer distinctively builds in cues that are clearly familiar – an eclectic balance sonically all things considered.
Recognizably well-mixed and mastered to give the song a squeaky-clean pop, “Blasted,” envelopes certain hot mid-tempo trends while instilling an imaginative spin on the vibe. The drop comes and proves just how much personality one release on it’s own can have. Metallic elements work themselves into the grain of a 128 framework, a refreshing juxtaposition to an over-the-top intense energy-drop some may go for. The vitality level here falls within a reasonable range, allowing the details within to stand out more with sophistication and grace.
Honored by repeat support from A-list names such as Alison Wonderland and a stream count-per-song always going into the hundred of thousands at a healthy pace, Kantor has achieved a streak of success and recognition that can only be attributed to a working model of music.
“Blasted” is a record I believe fully encapsulates my style: the true combination between bass music, techno, and house. I have always wanted to combine those 3 genres and this truly reveals to the listener what type of journey they are going to be taken on in the coming months and years. This is just the beginning of that journey, so expect to hear insane basslines, thick kick drums, subtle melodic elements, and tons of crazy percussion!
Kantor is the culmination of a revolutionary live performance, impeccable production, and an entire virtual world presented in the form of music videos. After having an extremely successful career with his other alias touring with Kendrick Lamar and Steve Aoki, as well as being supported by the largest DJs on the planet such as Tiësto, DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, Baauer, Afrojack, among many others, Kantor decided to focus on a new project that captures the sounds, performance, and visuals he dreamed of for many years.
Kantor invented his own launchpad that’s literally performed on through dance, creating a totally unique experience for the audience and enables him to showcase his skills as the inaugural DDR world champion when he was only 14. Kantor combines the sounds of techno and bass music–and everything in between–to bring the listener into an entirely new world of sounds.
