Autoerotique Drops Free 3-Track EP "Darker Things"


Autoerotique shows no mercy on his fierce Darker Things EP. In addition to the project’s lead single “Run For Cover,” the Toronto super-producer uses shrewd vocal sampling and grimy wubs to offer up “Slew Dem” and “Reverse” in a formidable display of his patented sound. With Darker Things, Autoerotique once again proves he is among the top sound designers in bass house as he continues to find new ways to push the genre forward.
Since its 10/21 release, “Run For Cover” has garnered a substantial amount of industry backing. After its premiere by ThisSongSlaps who praised it as “a lethal dose of his signature production style,” the single caught the attention of numerous heavy-hitters like Dillon Francis, David Guetta, Steve Aoki,Showtek and Afrojack, who dropped it on his renowned Jacked Radio show. “Slew Dem” followed suit, swiftly receiving radio support from A-listers Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Don Diablo, and Dyro, among many others.
Following a Juno Award nomination for his Max Styler collaboration “Badman (Torro Torro Remix)” Autoerotique kicked off 2016 with his Kids Don’t Care EP on Dim Mak. Moving into spring, he was tapped by Major Lazer to collaborate on “The Sound,” which proved to be one of the most popular festival season tracks as evidenced by Calvin Harris’ live support at Coachella.
Autoerotique remained red-hot throughout the summer, teaming up with Steve Aoki on “ILYSM.” The collaboration was featured on the Dim Mak founder’s celebrated 4OKI EP and has been streamed 11.4M times on Spotify. In addition, Autoerotique recently joined Aoki on MTV’s brand new Wonderlandseries to perform “ILYSM” live (watch here). Not slowing down any time soon, he is also planning to release an official remix of DJ Snake and Yellow Claw’s“Ocho Cinco” from the former’s debut studio album Encore. Autoerotique’s high-energy live persona and voracious workhorse mentality are deeply manifested in his genre-shaping Darker Things EP, out now for free on Dim Mak.
