Pressure Ft Hvdes, Darksiderz @ CrybabyOakland 9/8/22
Supported by electronic & rock staples including deadmau5, Bring Me The Horizon, Senses Fail, Svdden Death, Kill The Noise and more, HVDES brings a blackhearted yet thrilling aura to the next generation of electronic music. With deep roots in her local alternative & punk scenes, HVDES possesses a versatile grasp of music across the spectrum, beginning with her earliest talents as a classically trained pianist. Armed with her influences in the rock scene and a laptop, HVDES found her sound by expressing her authentic self — turning the darkest corners of her life into music. She offers a strikingly sinister sound that resonates on the dance floor. Much like the ruler of the underworld, the sheer intensity of HVDES’ trademark sound represents her fierce persona. There’s a reason HVDES has released on labels such as Kannibalen, mau5trap, Monstercat, & more: she’s carved out a lane for herself and herself alone with her own gritty, raw, & signature style. In 2019, HVDES embarked on her first international tour across China, has toured across the U.S. & unleashed her pivotal Stand Alone Complex EP via Kannibalen. In 2020, she released her song "Fallout" which in 2022, she co produced and co wrote the major re-imagination by Bring Me The Horizon & Masked Wolf. For the misfits and the misunderstood, HVDES delivers both a comforting and cutting-edge perspective on the dark side of life. Creating beauty where there’s pain, the sound of HVDES cuts deep in all the right places.
