Champagne Drip is a bass producer focused on rich melodies with a laid back mentality. Also known for his other alias “SPL”, producer Sam Pool is not new to the bass world. Previously known for a darker sound, Sam Pool started releasing under Champagne Drip in anonymity. Consequently in order to be able to explore the potential of uplifting bass music. With two EP releases through Mad Decent and remixes of his music from artists such as Big Wild, Lazerdisk, Mayhem, and Son of Kick, everyone was looking to uncover who was bringing this new fresh twist in the bass community. In 2016, after spending more than a full year refining his sound, Sam Pool finally revealed himself to be the mysterious Champagne Drip.
Champagne Drip is currently celebrating the release of his EP, “Millennia”, through the Deadbeats record label created by Zeds Dead. This EP brings the joy of four smooth sounding compositions that share the same vibe. All the while maintaining their own intricate identity.
The first track, which shares its title with the EP, delivers a welcoming and magical vibe accompanied by vocals from Hollis. Diving into the second song “Show me the Stars”, things begin to feel less playful and a bit more serious. Thought provoking bass lines, and a back and forth between two synths lure the listener into a world of wonder. The third step in this journey is labeled “Blue Science”. Filled with funky variations and rhythmic switch ups this is an exciting tune with great potential of rocking dance floors by offering all DJ’s a tool that maintains the energy while bringing a breath of positive through the room. The journey ends on a serious note with a production titled “Scattered”. Introducing a heavy and hard hitting bass, this is the most intense part of the release.
Following the release of “Millenia”, Champagne Drip is kicking off a run of international shows.
