"Are your shoe laces tied tight? Do you have enough free space to bust a move? Be sure to ready yourself appropriately, because pressing 'play' on FATHERDUDE's debut EP The Balance may cause sudden bouts of arm jabbing, twirling, two-stepping, and/or other forms of freestyle dance expression."
Over the past year, FATHERDUDE has become a breakout artist with songs totaling over 12 Million plays between Soundcloud and Spotify and another 5 Million on YouTube. He has been called one of "The 10 Singer-Songwriters Shaping Electronic Music Right Now" by Skrillex-helmed tastemaker blog Nest HQ, alongside other rapidly emerging acts like K. Flay, Kiiara, and ROZES. The Harlem-based singer is now ready to take a stand with his new EP The Balance, out June 10th on etcetc Music. Ornamented with punchy synths, bouncy basslines, and soulful vocals The Balance sees FATHERDUDE breaking through the confines of traditional electronic music, and coming onto the global scene with arms in full swing.
“The Balance is the beginning of FATHERDUDE defining his own sound…It’s a pretty great statement at that.” - Nest HQ
Excited for what the future has in store, FATHERDUDE says, "This EP, The Balance, is a testament to the great producers and musicians I work with." And the talent is real. Grammy nominated hip-hop producer !llmind (Drake, J.Cole, Kanye West) is featured on two cuts. Brooklyn rap figurehead Joell Ortiz of Eminem-founded Shady Records makes an appearance, demonstrating FATHERDUDE's diverse appeal and local influence, and the EP also features buzzing musician-focused dance music makers Brasstracks, future bass pioneer Infuze, and forward-thinking producer Konrad OldMoney (riff-raff, Pegboard Nerds).
