The rise of Marshmello has been pretty incredible this last while. His music has created a cult of fans, who are dedicated to the mysterious producer’s music. And it looks like his free downloads are going to be mixed in with a series of releases, with ‘Ritual‘ arriving on Skrillex’s label OWSLA.
But over the last few months, there has been an on going tit for tat between Marshmello and none other than Twitter warrior Deadmau5. The two have been bouncing off each other with in-direct tweets, or straight up war of words and that is set to continue with the ‘Ritual’ official music video. A series of artists make an appearance within the video, but you guessed it, Deadmau5 also makes an appearance, though his mau5 head has been changed a little.
‘Ritual’ itself is a quality new track which reflects the sound which Marshmello has been bringing across over the last few months. Now this one is a little more commercial led, with the vocals of Wrabel being a main focus of the track. These blend in with the solid bass line which seems to rivet through the track alongside the sweet melodies which continue to build on the way up to the drop. And when this one drops, the energy is superb. It just seems to ooze out of the track through the synth built melodies, and the vocals of Wrabel. This mixture is extremely powerful and is set to work wonders. This could also easily be a radio anthem in the near future.
Back to the video however and you have the likes of Skrillex, the cameo of Deadmau5 and many more of the OWSLA crew featuring. ‘Ritual’ is set to be a very big track indeed.
