After dropping a trio of dubstep-inspired projects, DJ Muggs announces an upcoming project with producer Andrew Kline, under the moniker: Cross My Heart Hope To Die. Both are set to drop a self-titled EP, using the same title, which they say “will change your perceptions of art, and challenge your expectations of music.”
Muggs and Kline come from two, very different musical backgrounds. While the DJ is known for his work with Cypress Hill and in the hip-hop world, Kline has played guitar for hardcore punk band Strife for two decades… as well as moonlighting as a producer.
Together, they took their love of a dark, cinematic music and worked together on his new, genre-bending project.
The Cross My Heart Hope To Die EP is the first release from the duo, set to drop April 2nd on Alpha Pup Records. It will feature four driving, ethereal songs, anchored together by the vocals of singer Brevi.
“The interactive street art side has been manifesting for almost a year. Unsuspecting pedestrians in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, and Vienna have been enjoying, and participating in this project — often without even knowing it,” says the official press release. “Cross My Heart Hope To Die wants to manipulate the way people find music, to bring back the thrill of discovery. Something sorely needed in a digital age where we are constantly bombarded with aural stimulation.”
The duo are prepping upcoming gallery exhibitions and a series of videos shot all over the world to showcase the project as a whole.
