While he did drop off an original on Excision’s Subsidia label and a remix for Liquid Stranger last year, LICK has remained mostly silent for over a year. Well after a few festival announcements from Bonnaroo, Electric Zoo, HARD Summer, and more, LICK returned in a big way with his new single. “IN THE DARK” is an ethereal dubstep banger featuring Calivania on vocals. With anthemic drums and Calivania’s towering vocals leading into a unique but massive drop, this one is ready for the big stage. Hopefully this sets up more new music from this emerging presence in the bass music scene, but only time will tell what LICK’s up to.
