Polish electronic music usually flies under the radar, but MYSTXRIVL and enjoii plan to change that with the release of ‘Pure White’ pulled from UK wave label, Liquid Ritual’s forthcoming Volume 2 compilation LP due on Wednesday, May 29.
Known for their bombastic breakdowns and ethereal aura within the underground bass and wave community, MYSTXRIVL and enjoii have forged a grunge heavy affair that blends vivid vocal stems with brutal bass. ‘Pure White’s baroque structure is designed to flaunt Poland’s surging wave scene. The propulsive progression elevates the single from the underground into a new era of European dance music.
Wave’s prevalence around the world has been on the rise as local scenes continue to evolve. The likes of BBC Radio 1 (UK), Mixmag (UK), Complex (UK), triple j (AU), FBi Radio (AU), Stoney Roads (AU), FUXWITHIT (CA) and Block fm (JP) have all recognised Liquid Ritual artists and releases as the “ones to watch.” Liquid Ritual and the wave community they have built has advanced the avant-garde genre into the mainstream.
This international attention hasn’t gone unnoticed, with tastemakers such as RL Grime being an active follower of the r/wavepool sub-reddit, as well as performing wave at renown festivals such as EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival). Additional support from heavyweights, Hardwell and Porter Robinson have all added Liquid Ritual releases to their setlists.
“Sorry to disappoint, but there’s no inspiring story or glamour around the production process… We’re just two friends who made some music together. Fun fact, a majority of ‘Pure White’ was written in enjoii’s kitchen.” – MYSTXRIVL on ‘Pure White’
