There is nothing more exciting than watching an artist develop. Lee Austin Bates aka MUST DIE! has come a long way in 2013, crafting his sound and making a name for himself in the world of EDM. With former releases on power house record companies such as Ultra, Mad Decent, Play Me and Atlantic, it was only a matter of time before this “professional Skull Kid” joined up and rubbed elbows with the greats.
Now this Atlanta based production whiz joins forces with the Never Say Die family, a personal Rager favorite, securing himself a spot among some of the most talented bass music phenoms. For example, Zomboy, ever heard of him? Yeah, we thought so.
Lee’s particular style of music is used as a medium to capture the wonders/horrors of his own life experiences, including but not limited to: “the essence of childhood, manic depression, bad anime and sleep deprivation.” On his Facebook, MUST DIE! describes his sound as “reminiscent of being lost in an 8-bit jungle with a high-grade fever while eating sour candy.”
That is certainly one way to put it, but the only way to really know is to listen.
That is where we come in.
Please, if you like the music, why not buy it? Not all musicians are racking in the dough, so help out our boy and support the artist.
