This is Halloween! This is Halloween!….Altered Halloween!
Champagne Drip, the newest musical incarnation of Los Angeles-based producer Sam Pool, was born out of a philosophy that innovation springs from inspiration. Pool had carved out a unique place for himself in the bass music community; performing under the moniker of SPL for over 10 years and releasing drum & bass, dubstep, and trap-oriented music on respected labels such as Barcode, Tech Itch, Evol Intent, Sub Human, Rottunn, and SMOG Recordings. SPL’s music was fully immersed in sound design, a musical landscape comprised of melodic, dark, and refined touches.
By the Summer of 2014, Pool came to the realization that he had pushed the SPL project to its sonic boundaries and in order to evolve musically, he would need a new project to explore lighter textures and richer melodies. Rooted in jungle and bass music and built around elements of blippy 8-bit sounds, arpeggios, and lush 80s synths, Champagne Drip launched as a decidedly tropical and uplifting sounding project. Operating at first in anonymity, Champagne Drip made a big splash thru the release of official remixes of Bassnectar (Amorphous Music) and Elliphant (Mad Decent). Shortly thereafter, he released his debut EP “Radio Bikini” on Mad Decent in September of 2014.
Over the first year of the project’s history, press outlets were fascinated with the unique sound, but also with uncovering the identity of the secretive producer behind the music. “Radio Bikini” was subsequently remixed by electronic upstarts Big Wild, Lazerdisk, Mayhem, and Son of Kick and released in the Spring of 2015 as “Remix Bikini”. In the Fall of 2015, Champagne Drip released his 2nd EP for Mad Decent, “Journey Into The Champagne Sea”. Whereas his first EP explored more overtly tropical overtones, “Journey” went into deeper and darker musical territory.
After spending one full year refining his sound in the studio, he finally revealed himself as the former SPL in 2016; performing across the US at such festivals as Mysteryland, WTFest?, Imagine, Enchanted Forest, and Lights All Night. Building up anticipation for his next original recordings, Champagne Drip released the stand alone single “Open Your Eyes”, which was featured on the official Bernie Sanders Presidential campaign fundraising compilation “Rave4Bernie”. Official remixes for Grandtheft (Mad Decent), Cardinox (Warner Brothers), and Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE (Mad Decent) followed.
Champagne Drip will be capping off an already busy year with the release of two new EPs; “Poseidon” via Quality Goods Records on November 18, followed up “Of Course I Still Love You”, out on December 10th via Saturate Records. Official remixes for Zeds Dead & Diplo, UZ, and DAWN will also see a Winter 2016 release.

He meticulously eludes genres in order to welcome a variety of enthusiasts to gather and celebrate the rewards of community. Luzcid hopes music can become platform in which the peoples of the world can reconnect and begin to restore our home to a place in which we all enjoy living.
He has already performed in almost every major US city and continues to spread his wings across the music community.Although his production stands proudly on its own ,Luzcid has proven he is one of those acts you need to experience live to get the full picture. He uses ableton live to weld a sonic quilt of sensationally hefty hip-hoppy psychedelic bass music.
His song with Bassnectar “Science Fiction” is a splendid illustration of Luzcid’s ability to collaborate and conceive a fierce beauty with one of EDM’s most revered artists.
