After a summer of touring major festivals like Bonnaroo and Electric Forest, a string of singles with artists like Skrillex and Zeds Dead, and a billboard-worthy promotion, PEEKABOO’s highly anticipated debut album, Eyes Wide Open, is officially here. Promptly arriving at midnight, the 13-track exploration of sound blends elements of hip-hop, trap, and dubstep for a bass-fueled experience that’ll have you feening for more.
While PEEKABOO is already established as an undeniable force in bass music, Eyes Wide Open further cements him as a pioneer in the scene. Separating from the mainstream and leaning into an indisputable authenticity, the Detroit producer showcases his innovative approach through the remnants of his father’s trumpet melodies that echoed throughout his childhood home and the potent influences of a 2010 Skrillex.
The record opens up with the lead single, BADDERS, featuring Skrillex, Flowdan, & G-Rex, blaring through the speakers and setting the tone for the album. Sleepwalk, Like That, and Scared, featuring Zeds Dead, then take over, unleashing a fury of wonky beats and pulsing drops of bass that blast you into the ether.
All I Need Is Bass then brings you back down to bassline through sequences of rhythmic vibrations before Dope sends you into a bass-fueled nirvana you can’t escape. Peekaboo then joins forces with Grabbitz on Going Insane as the trance-inducing vibe continues through alluring soundscapes and spellbinding vocals.
With the next track, You Got Me, Peekaboo leans into his orchestral upbringing as he layers the soulful tones of his father’s trumpet notes over dreamy waves of bass that take you on a trip itself. The album then seemingly transitions into an array of kaleidoscopic bliss driven by the hypnotic melodies of I’ve Been Thinkin before unloading an electrifying clip of headkockin beats on Bumpin and Riddle. As the album comes to an end, the Detroit producer revisits the heavy yet atmospheric vibe that launched his career before Don’t Wanna closes out the record with a melodic dose of euphoria.
With Eyes Wide Open, PEEKABOO surpassed expectations and delivered one of the biggest electronic records of the year. Not only did he showcase his growth as a producer and artist, but pushed the boundaries of bass music to a whole new level!
