Genre-Defying Electronic Rock Artist Blue Stahli Collabs With Renowned British DJ and Producer Hyper on New Single “Break and Enter” Out August 18
Electronic rock music powerhouse Blue Stahli has paired up with British DJ and producer Hyper on new high-energy single “Break and Enter” out today, August 18 on all platforms. The new electro punk rock single builds intricate layering to a fast-paced crescendo chock-full of heavy bass, raging guitar riffs, and glitchy vocals.
Blue Stahli, known for his genre-blurring compositions and high-octane production style, has garnered a massive global following and underscored many horror and action films like Lights Out, Iron Man 3 and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, as well as video games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Dead Rising 2. Similarly, Hyper has made waves in the electronic music scene with his distinctive blend of cinematic and electronic elements used in trailers and scores.
“Hyper is an absolute legend,” says Blue Stahli. “After he created an incredible remix of the song ‘Upgrade’ (the track I did with composer Danny Cocke for the video game Cyberpunk 2077), we started kicking around the idea of how fun it would be to do a track together and combine our styles into one bass-heavy electro punk monstrosity. Hyper is the electronic embodiment of punk rock and it was killer to get to blend our unique production and writing styles together to bring ‘Break and Enter’ to life!”
“If I were to describe this tune,” shares Hyper, “I’d say that if I was trapped alone by a bunch of muggers down a dark side street late at night, I’d choose this as the weapon to beat them with.”
Blue Stahli is a surgeon of sound. He stitches together chopped up guitars, bass synths, electro beats, and vocal hooks into lush mixes of varying genres with surprising prowess and authenticity. In one turn, his catalog will take a listener from metallic heaviness to electronic ambience. Influenced by movies such as Hackers, Johnny Mnemonic, Bubblegum Crisis, and other 90s cyberpunk, Blue Stahli started making music in tracker programs such as Scream Tracker and Impulse Tracker (which were a big part of the demoscene as well as being used to create videogame soundtracks). The modern tracker, Renoise, continues to be Blue Stahli’s canvas of choice for producing his brand of electronic rock, bass music, French electro and even sophisticated videogame scores in the tradition of the original tracker pioneers.
Beginning in 2009 with his smash single, ULTRAnumb, Blue Stahli continues to blend genres and media having appeared in films and TV shows such as Lights Out and American Horror Story in addition to creating original songs for videogames like Cyberpunk 2077, and appearing in trailers for Destiny 2, and Call of Duty. As an evolving and prolific songwriter, producer, and artist, he has released 11 studio albums including the deadchannel_Trilogy consisting of Quartz, Copper, and Obsidian. He also releases material under his secondary moniker, Sunset Neon. Blue Stahli’s latest release, “Break and Enter,” is a collaboration with DJ and fellow producer, Hyper. The track fuses elements of their electronic rock, breakbeat, metal, and cyberpunk styles together in this electro punk rock single.
