A staple within the bass music scene, UK-native producer Tisoki is starting the new decade with a bang. Fresh off a NYE performance at Insomniac’s Countdown festival, Dim Mak producer Tisoki is joined by emo rap pioneer LiL Lotus on “Promise,” a boundary-free composition that integrates elements of bass music with the passion and vulnerabilities of LiL Lotus’ emotive vocals. “Promise” follows Tisoki’s recent single “IT’S OK” and is the second look at the producers’ forthcoming sophomore EP, which is due to drop just in time for festival season.
