Blanke Unveils Groundbreaking Debut Monstercat EP ‘Emergence,’ Reflecting Personal Growth And Creative Breakthroughs

Multi-genre producer Blanke today unveils his highly-anticipated debut Monstercat EP, ‘Emergence.’

Music festival attendees are bound to encounter Blanke’s music, whether they find themselves at the melodious atmosphere of the main stage, or at the electric energy of the bass stage. 2023 was a milestone year for Blanke, as he made unforgettable performances at events and venues including Lollapalooza (Chicago and Paris), EDC Las Vegas, HARD Summer, Lost Lands and Empower Field in Mile High Stadium (opening for Illenium on his Trilogy:Colorado Show) to name a few. He’s landed major collaborations with renowned names in the dance scene such as REZZ, Zeds Dead, Seven Lions, Gryffin, and created official remixes for Sullivan King (“Someone Else”) and Ray Volpe, with his viral take on “Laserbeam” under his Drum & Bass alias, ÆON:MODE. He’s also caught the attention from media including LA Weekly, The XLNT Show, Magnetic Magazine, and more.

The official launch of his ÆON:MODE project serves as a testament to his craft in pushing boundaries of soundscapes beyond norms, redefining the limits of musical expression while demonstrating that artists need not be constrained by a single genre. This belief extends to Blanke as well as showcased in ‘Emergence.’ Including hit singles “Crashing Hard” with Casey Cook, “Heaven” with Rival and KC, and “Heavy Heart (feat. your friend polly)” with Grant, the EP welcomes the immense musical diversity of Blanke. Collaborating with Au5 in “Turmoil,” the track drew inspiration from trance-inspired influences leaning in with more powerful bass drops, while “Alphane” delivers a dose of intense heavy-hitting metal. “Data” originated as a feedback submission via AUDIA, a valued member of his Patreon community. This record not only introduces a bass house tempo to Blanke’s repertoire but showcases his influential role in the scene, positioning him as a mentor.

Aptly named ‘Emergence,’ the EP blends a mixture of polarizing emotions and energies, symbolizing the resilience found in the aftermath of challenges. It conveys a poignant yet hopeful narrative – amid chaos, beauty is bound to arise, echoing into themes of renewal and cyclical transformation presenting an aspect of depth and darkness that can precede change. The accompanying visuals display a city consumed by plant life, highlighting rebirth and growth.

Blanke shares, “The ‘Emergence’ EP is a diverse representation of my musical journey over the past year. There have been a lot of ups and downs, personally and creatively, and this EP shows a breakthrough of my own personality, passion, creativity and skill that I hope will resonate with whoever listens to it. Every story has an intricacy that we cant see.

Fans can catch Blanke on his current ‘EARTH TO THE STARS: EMERGENCE’ tour, where he’ll head to venues including NOVA in San Diego on March 29th and The Midway in San Francisco on March 30th with support from acts such as an early set from himself as ÆON:MODE, Fairlane, EDDIE, and others.
