DJ/producer Riot Ten just released his latest single, “Ready For War,” the fourth single from his forthcoming album, slated to drop in July via Dim Mak.
The collaboration between Dogma and Riot Ten features the ferocious vocals of Joe Buras, lead vocalist for Born Of Osiris. The end product is “Ready For War,” blending mind-boggling dubstep with heavy metal muscle.
Talking about the track, Riot Ten shares, “‘Ready For War’’ is one of the hardest records off the upcoming album and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Dogma and I had planned on working on something heavy for a while and getting Joe Buras on vocals was the icing on the cake. This track is for the gym rats and headbangers alike. Pure energy!”
Originally from El Paso, Texas, Riot Ten burst onto the electronic music scene releasing his debut EP, Hype Or Die: Headbangerz, featuring his gigantic hit “Like Kanye,” with Bunji Garlin. In 2017, Riot Ten signed with Dim Mak Records, followed by dropping “Fuck It” and his monster global hit “Rail Breaker.”
In 2018, Riot Ten released his EP, Hype Or Die: The Dead, which debuted in the Top 10 of iTunes’ Dance Album charts. The following year, he released his debut album, Hype Or Die: Nightmares.
Last year saw Riot Ten drop the Hype Or Die: Emergence EP, along with his BLKMRKT Vol. 1 EP. So far this year, he’s dropped three singles from his impending LP, including “Don’t You,” “Poppin,” featuring Krystall Poppin, and “Get Out” with STARX, featuring Blupill and Dopeboylo.
With sold-out performances around the world, Riot Ten has appeared at EDC Las Vegas, Coachella, Lost Lands, Nocturnal Wonderland, Electric Zoo, EDC Mexico, Global Dance Festival, Electric Forest, Bass Canyon, and Imagine Music Festival, among others.
“Ready For War” opens on surging metal guitars thrumming with sinewy dark colors, followed by the entry of Buras’ annihilating voice, chock-full of grating, rasping textures. The heavy dubstep rhythm infuses the harmonics with hammering intensity as the guitars snarl overhead.
Riot Ten has it going on! The combination of dense metal and boiling dubstep with Joe Buras’ scalding timbres give “Ready For War” swashbuckling oomph.
