The Perth production heavyweight follows up his A Dark Machine single with another great track.

Late last year, Perth production heavyweight ShockOne returned in a big way with the release of A Dark Machine, an incredibly vibey new track featuring fellow Perth figure (and ShockOne's sister) Reija Lee. "In the end, the vocals we recorded that day, which were just supposed to be working demo takes, ended up being the final takes you hear on the song, which I find quite amazing," he said in an interview last year. "She totally nailed that performance, and so much of the emotional power of the song comes from her vocals." Now he's back, teaming up with Perth hip-hop figure Cruz Patterson for another cracker track Bleed BlackBleed Black inventively bridges the world of drum 'n' bass and trap in a way that only someone like ShockOne can, with an energetic and bassy production proving the perfect platform for Patterson to add a hip-hop tinge to the single through his guest vocals. "Bleed Black is the second look into the Dark Machine world," says ShockOne on the track, possibly hinting at a more elaborate Dark Machine world still to come. "Extending on themes present in the first single A Dark Machine, Bleed Black goes a step deeper inside the machine." Dive into the track below ahead of a show at Perth's Belvoir Amphitheatre next month for Hidden, which boasts an all-star line-up including Wiley, JOYRYDE and more.
