Sitting Down With REAPER, Drum & Bass’s Masked Advocate, at BUKU
For those of you who have not heard of REAPER, now is the time to familiarize yourself with one of the most exciting acts to burst onto the dance music scene with their unique flavor of Drum & Bass, bringing the style to the forefront for bass music enthusiasts across the spectrum. Currently on tour with fellow bass artist, Kumarion, REAPER performed at their first-ever BUKU Music + Art Festival this past weekend and joined us for an interview following the b2b set.
While their journey has only just begun, their impact is already evident, having amassed millions of streams across digital platforms with no sign of slowing down. The live side of the project launched in January 2020, debuting with Brownies and Lemonade at 1720 Warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles. Following the debut, REAPER had a massive 2021 festival season performing at Insomniac’s EDC Las Vegas on the BASSpod as well as Nocturnal Wonderland, EDC Orlando, Excision’s Lost Lands, and many more. REAPER also provided huge tour support for Kayzo in select markets from coast to coast, adding key club shows in between. With the present momentum behind the project and an arsenal of unlimited Drum & Bass weapons — REAPER is primed and ready for a massive 2022. REAPER is the voice of the future, the culmination of over two decades of bass. Their music is a portal to the new era, a gateway to Drum & Bass.
During the interview, they talk about their excitement for the continuation of The Uprising Tour, which is happening through the next few weeks, so be sure to check it a stop near you. They also talk about their ongoing love for Drum & Bass, which they will forever be a proponent of, and why they want to focus on bringing that love to stages across the country. And if they were to ever decide to leave the music industry, we could anticipate seeing their name on movie production crews, though we may not know it’s them sans mask.
