On March 10, mashup king turned DJ/producer Kap Slap released an energetic new single “Gone,” on 3LAU’s charity label BLUME. Even at 100 bpm, Kap Slap flawlessly delivers his unmistakable production to “Gone,” mixing in dance, pop, and rhythmic elements and adding false drops to continuously build the track.
“Justin has been a good friend of mind since we first started making mashups back in 2009 so to release this track on BLUME really brings things full circle. The work he’s doing with BLUME is incredible, and it’s a huge honor to be helping him bring this vision to life,” said Kap Slap to YourEDM.
“Gone” is the first non-3LAU release off his non-profit label, BLUME. 3LAU founded the label in April 2016 with the mission to unite music listeners worldwide around philanthropic causes and initiatives. Last year, 3LAU and BLUME reached their goal of raising $200,000 for Pencils and Promise. BLUME’s current objective is to raise $30,000 for the ACLU, and the profits from Kap Slap’s single “Gone” will go toward reaching the goal.
“With BLUME, we wanted to offer other artists the opportunity to release their records to benefit BLUME-supported philanthropies. Being very involved in A&R for the label, I was looking for extremely unique, yet accessible records. Jared (Kap Slap) and I have a long history together, as we both started our journeys through dance music with mash ups. And when he sent me “Gone” – just to see what I thought- I knew immediately that it was the perfect way to launch signing other artists to BLUME and getting their support for our philanthropic initiatives,” said 3LAU.
