We haven’t really heard much of a new peep from Echo Park musician and producer Crywolf since his Skeletons EP last year, and we’re definitely hungering for some of his heart crushing, breathtaking music. Though we’ll have to continue waiting, we’re more than grateful that LA production prodigy AWAY has brought Quantum Immortality back with a profoundly stirring, darkly atmospheric new remix. The glitchy haunting, pensive brooding remix is a potent mixture of towering progressions and heart stopping drops. Grand and cinematic, AWAY’s remix leaves us wondering… is there a chance AWAY and Crywolf might come together for an official collaboration soon? Their styles meld together so seamlessly on this melancholic future bass and melodic trap remix.

If you’ve yet to set aside some time to listen to Crywolf’s latest EP, Skeletons, you’re making a grave mistake. The brilliant Echo Park musician and producer is at the forefront of the “post-EDM” movement with his visionary song crafting and emotive delivery, and the pioneer has pummeled our hearts and touched our souls time and time again with his music. Skeletons is a poignant and profound journey of the heart, and it features this sensationally atmospheric, regally operatic aria named Silk, which features ever bewitching Mothica on aerial fluttering guest vocals, whom I’m gutted to have missed at SXSW last week (but I did see a lot of Mothica stickers around). Sadly, I also missed Crywolf’s DJ set at Get Buzzzed despite really wanting to make it out to the Brew Exchange. Fortunately, I’ve seen this incredible virtuoso back home in San Francisco, and I was thoroughly blown away by his live set. Crywolf’s Skeletons EP can be streamed in full via Soundcloud, here. Purchase from iTunes, here. Alternate stream of Silk via Soundcloud can be found below.

I just about lost it last week when I was afforded an early preview of this tune, the latest single from colossally talented singer songwriter and producer Crywolf. The Echo Park based musician sends chills through me with Weight, a windswept acoustic ballad whose aching emotion weighs heavy on heart and soul. I’m much convinced there isn’t much Crywolf can’t do. I’m nearly sure his array of cinematic and atmospheric electronic opuses could move mountains, much less us, and his ability to belt his songs out with that exquisite voice while playing a million (okay, maybe a few less than a million) instruments is plain ridiculous. Now he gives us this, a desperately exposed, vulnerably haunting, bare-all sort of rousing ballad on which Crywolf melds acoustic folk with indie rock. Weight comes from Crywolf’s Skeletons EP, due out March 10th on Okami Records. The record, sure to be one of the most powerfully stirring releases this year, can be pre-ordered on iTunes

Windswept couldn’t be a more appropriate name for a Crywolf song. The Echo Park singer songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist has proven himself a master storyteller and an epic troubadour with the sweeping sagas he’s given us in the past, songs that spanned both space and time with their wealth of staggering emotion. And, if you’ve ever experienced those sprawling songs live at a Crywolf show, you know just how brilliant this sonic genius can be from the stage as well. New song Windswept begins with tender harmonies, but as always, it gradually blossoms and builds into great cathartic peaks, seamlessly melding acoustic and electronica for a grandiose symphonic experience. Crywolf seems to bare all on Windswept, leaving his vulnerable heart out for all to see and feel. In turn, we find out that we are all but kindred spirits in this human condition. Windswept is a free download, here.

Who else but Echo Park sonic virtuoso Crywolf could deliver a track that lives up to a profoundly deep name like Quantum Immortality? Crywolf’s balance of the instrumental ornate and the electronic gripping has always been complex and powerful, leaving its imprint deep within our soul for all eternity. Quantum Immorality is a vibrating, quivering, thundering concerto as engaging as it is exhilarating. This tidal wave is dark and dauntless, creeping then marching with brooding confidence. Crywolf gives us a timeless sweeping burner that examines desire, fear, and death. Quantum Immortality is out now on iTunes.

Crywolf’s debut album Cataclasm is the sort of tour de force emotional ride that surely draws tears. If you haven’t caught the Southern California producer perform his music from a stage, you need to. It’s just as gut wrenching and riveting if not even more so as Crywolf sings, plays instruments, and mixes altogether. This week, a music video has been release for Cataclasm track The Hunger In Your Haunt, a majestic marching, ambient sweeping beauty. The lush forest from which he exudes such impassioned anguish and tormented sentiment within the video is the perfect pairing for The Hunger In Your Haunt’s sorrowful melodic bass. Stream Crywolf’s Cataclasm in full on Soundcloud and purchase from iTunes.

On Friday, August 26th, those at 1015 in San Francisco will witness a trifecta of immense electronic talent as cln, Crywolf, and ILLENIUM regales a sold out crowd with each of their sets. I’ve caught two out of three the last time they played in the Bay, and they were intensely magnetic, stirring up a great amount of deeply overwhelming emotion with their music. There’s no doubt Crywolf will be incredible again, as he was last time at Popscene, delivering his mix of live and electronic elements, all at the same time, while pulverizing hearts with his heart rending vocals, too. As the show approaches, Crywolf has unleashed a stunning cover of PVRIS’ hit song St. Patrick, making it all his own with his cinematic electronic approach. The beautiful sweeping cover is a free download, here.
