Following his debut album ‘MANGOTALE‘, Shawn Wasabi Reveals a New Stunning Single ‘i dip’
In his new single ‘i dip’, Wasabi returns to unveil another layer to his animated universe. ‘i dip’ is a dance-floor-friendly bop that conveys themes of personal adaptation, having the confidence to grow and knowing when to move on.
The new track features a representation of Wasabi’s growth as a producer, breaking through the confines of his DIY electronic origins, experimenting with genres and adapting to new techniques. Influenced by the 808 bass line commonly found in hip hop and pop productions, Wasabi harnessed this classic as his primary melody, coloring the track with floating ornamental sounds.
The track draws further inspiration from the golden era of social media, a time when the Blog House explosion helped dance music to blossom without borders through MySpace and MP3 blogs.
Originally a 1970’s fad that found resurgence in the early 2000s, the mood ring mimics Wasabi’s inspirations for ‘i dip’, offering an ideal metaphor for the themes of transformation throughout the track. The mood ring’s change color acts as a reflection of what lies beneath, leaving nothing else to do but ride the currents on the surface.
In May of 2020, Shawn released his first full-length project, MANGOTALE, a 12-track LP supported by an entirely female cast of collaborators including Chevy, Satica, Raychel Jay, and more.
