As of late, his recent releases on Cyclops Recordings, Subsidia Records, and Bypass Audio have skyrocketed his trajectory as an artist at a sharp upward trend, amassing hundreds of thousands of streams. Catching the attention of the masses and searing his vision into their minds with his one-of-a-kind approach to music production.
Today, he adds another mind-bending tune to his discography titled “Hit’Em Wit” as a dual-label release on Riddim Network and High Caliber Records.
Hit’Em Wit slaps listeners across their jaw-dropped faces with its immense power and nasty drops. Packing a mean punch in the brief but brutal 2:15 duration, DEUCEZ gets his point across loud and clear.
Combining menacing and hair-raising build-ups with brassy drops, DEUCEZ puts it down with this new heater in no time.
Doing what he does best, the track holds it down as a powerhouse release and undeniably is going to move crowds and shake asses this festival season. He mentions to us in the interview below, that when he first debuted the track live, the crowd went crazy. Naturally so, because here in the storm we had trouble keeping our shit together just typing this article. So, with that being said, get ready for a beatdown by DEUCEZ with Hit’Em Wit.
Let’s Chat w/ DEUCEZ About His New Tune – “Hit’Em Wit”
What was going through your head when the idea first came to be for Hit’Em Wit?
DEUCEZ: “At first I was experimenting with some sound design and post processing until I made the main bass and thought “wait a minute, this is sick” and decided to write the entire track around it. To me it really “smacked” which inspired the vocal “Time to Hit’em wit the” and I’m extremely excited that I’ve been able to record/process my own vocals to put into my tracks to really capture the vibe I’m feeling.“
How does it feel to lock in a release with both Riddim Network as well as High Caliber Records?
DEUCEZ: “To be honest I’ve always lowkey wanted to release with riddim network because of being a riddim artist but also adding in the homies at high caliber it really became quite clear that it couldn’t have been any more perfect!”
When you first debuted this track live, where was it and what was the crowd’s reaction?
DEUCEZ: “I want to say I debuted it in Montreal, the crowd absolutely loved it and lost their minds!”
What’s next for DEUCEZ?
DEUCEZ: “To be honest we have some really cool things in the works right now that my team and I are extremely excited and passionate about.”
