Wakaan locks in a heavyweight collab from Champagne Drip and Lucii that hits us right where it hurts. With Liquid Stranger’s own Ascension EP having just dropped, it’s obvious that the imprint ain’t holding nothing back as Champagne Drip and Lucii elevate the proceedings with an emotionally charged single, aptly titled “Me and You.”
Bringing on the shivers right from the get-go the slow churning bass groove slowly unwinds as Lucii’s own goosebump-inducing vocals pave the way for the cinematic core of the tune proper. The real magic of the collab is in the way the melodic elements swerve and linger, revealing elements of each producers’ eclectic style. Just when you think you’ve got hold of the power of this one, the walls wobble and the bridge bring on a deep-seated existential pain that demands to be heard on a big rig under the nighttime sky.
It’s a powerful testament not only to the power of the duo in collab mode but to the versatility that bass music as a whole is capable of. With Wakaan leading the way and Champagne Drip and Lucii bringing their a-game, it’s cuts like this that will make even the most battle-hardened rail-rider fall in love once again with the deeper side of the genre.
