Raging Blue (Ocean Crawler) both verbally and sonically describes exactly what I imagine when I listen to this track. The ambient seaside foliage, layered with the deep atmospheric and detuned synths, make it feel as though you’re floating up and down through the raging blue waves of the ocean. The breakdown brings us to a calmer, more gentle current; while both drops slap you in the face like a tsunami hitting a sailboat in the pacific.
This new Wynde Up release is a well maintained consistency of the style you have personally developed since we first met. With a blend of ear catching – emotionally gripping structure, and a unique arrangement combined with the “10,000 leagues under the sea” type bass in your drops, this is one seriously hard hitting bass track.
Christian: Let’s start right at the beginning. Give our fans some brief insight into you as a person and an artist. What do you do outside of music, what first drove you to start up the Wynde Up project?
Wynde Up: I honestly don’t do much outside of music haha. I play videogames in between projects but I try not to, I can get sucked into them easily and end up doing that more than music. As for the Wynde Up project, I used to produce under a different name while I was figuring out how to even make music at all. I started making house, but I found a love for trap and started shifting into that more. As I started getting better at producing, the bar for quality was raised and I decided to start a new alias to go along with that.
Christian: What sparked the initial inspiration for such a creative production, and what gave you the idea for the two part name?
Wynde Up: Inspiration for the track actually comes from the game Sea Of Thieves. I was really into that game for a while, I love the pirate/ocean theme and I spent a lot of time playing it. I’ve made one other ocean themed track before, also inspired by the same game. I had originally named it Ocean Crawler, which is the name of an enemy type in the game, but during production I actually had a vocal sample that said the words ‘Raging Blue’. I ended up not keeping the vocal but I liked the name so I kept them both.
Christian: In such a unique and stand out production, you’re sure to stir up some emotions in the listener. Did you create this track with a particular feeling in mind that you hope to portray to your fans?
Wynde Up: I did, yeah. I really tried to portray a sort of a grand pirate ocean adventure with twists and turns. Kind of like telling a story.
Christian: You’ve had numerous releases this year, spanning multiple different styles of underground bass, and always maintaining that same deep, energetic Wynde Up vibe. Which was your favorite track to work on this year and why do you feel this way?
Wynde Up: My favorite song to work on this year just came out with my friend Arriel. It’s called Jazz Reference VIP, that song took so long to work on and was 3 or 4 years in the making. It changes BPM 3 times. I had to make separate project files for each part, bounce the whole section, then try and work them together. Lowkey, a nightmare to make but I’m happy with how it turned out and I’m glad it’s seeing the light of day.
Christian: What are a couple major musical goals of yours for the near future? What direction do you see Wynde Up heading in for 2022?
Wynde Up: I have some goal labels I’d like try and get on such as Phuture Collective, Jadu Dala, and Quality Goods. The top top label would be Deadbeats but I definitely got my work ahead of me haha. I’d also like to get into playing more shows, since those are making their return.
Christian: Can we expect any other releases or announcements soon that you’d like to tell our readers about right now?
Wynde Up: My song Jazz Reference VIP comes out 10/14 thats all I got for now haha
