Landing on March 23rd via Universal Music Sweden is ‘MAYDAY,’ the newest piece of work from multi-faceted phenomenon The Fat Rat. Having spent considerable time establishing himself as a major force within the YouTube and gaming community, the German artist is now pushing his electrifying original sounds across the globe.
‘MAYDAY;’ with vocals from Colorado hailing singer/songwriter Laura Brehm, comes at you with gripping melodies and atmospheric beats. Brehm’s ethereal tones ripple with ease over the surface of The Fat Rat’s otherworldly production, making for a dreamy combination of talent. Here he builds energy through drawn-out strains of synths, softly pounding drums and a twinkling top-line.
The tune lands after an exciting 4-day scavenger hunt for his worldwide fan base, which has been teased through an alternate reality game. A series of mysterious YouTube videos titled Transmission XK-794 were released with distorted images, symbols and sounds leading to a trailer of the single.
The most recent reveal was via Trap Nation, with 18 million subscribers paying witness to Transmission XK-794_2, which included an inverted shot of The Fat Rat himself. Fan anticipation for ‘MAYDAY’ hit fever pitch as they raced to identify both its producer and featured vocalist, before finally getting to enjoy this incredible piece of work.
