ON DECK: Druid Cloak

Bringing together fantasy fiction and bass music in a way that would even make an uruk-hai skank.

There is nobody in the game like Druid Cloak. The mysterious, Ohio-based producer has wrought a world unto himself that merges the dense atmospherics of fantasy fiction with the heady heaviness of bass music. His aesthetic is effortlessly unique, so nerdy that it immediately weeds out the posers, and more importantly than anything: it brings the bassweight in a way that would even make an uruk-hai skank.


Cloaky's ON DECK debut comes outta the gates with a Throwing Snow remix of his notable "Wraithebone Falls" tune off of Lore, a release in the series of conceptual EPs telling the tale of Josef Wolff, the Druid Cloak sporting protagonist who sits at the core of DC's work. From there, the mix is a veritable smorgasbord of discovery that champions tech-ed out, hip-hop influenced bass sounds from a whole host of artists we were unacquainted with, much of which was released on his own Apothecary Compositions.

Everything this guy does is fire, probably some blue-flamed fire that you have to roll an 18 to put out, but fire none-the-less.
