Chicago’s Stratus is ready to show off the results of a lengthy stint in the studio with a new EP including Grim Ripper, premiering exclusively on LessThan3.
After dropping releases on SMOG, OWSLA, and Ultra, Stratus has decided to leave the labels behind for his latest, an aptly named piece of electro house built to deliver the uninitiated EDM fan to the grave. Damp, clicky bass rumbles and acid lines dominate the visceral banger, for which Stratus said the inspiration was simple.
“Pure Ignorant Big Room–four key words that rotated in my head while writing this one,” Stratus told LessThan3. “I wanted to make the drop as stimulating and in-your-face as possible.”
Grim Ripper will be out June 16 on Stratus’ Juiced EP.
