Chela Omen and Scrufizzer share their bass music summer anthem ‘Rio’

UK producer Chela Omen is debuting with a fresh take on the underground sounds driving the UK. With promises to dive into electric vocal hooks, dark soundscapes and relentless breaks, Chela’s ambitions are to set the dance scene alight.

Moulding underground production and ferocity with addictive contemporary dance energy, the debut of Chela Omen sees him collaborate with UK icon Scrufizzer for a frenzied bass music track that shatters the room with floor-filling energy. ‘Rio’ is a melting pot for sultry female vocals, fast-paced rap flows, and screaming synth design.

Each hit of the bass is a punch in the chest, and each kick drum is there to shake the speakers. The electronic design is nestled on top, harnessing the ability to create visceral screams. In amongst all this dark, pure break energy, Chela leaves plenty of room for a festival-ready celebration with the vocals. A truly exciting first moment in the industry.

Chela explains, ”’Rio’ is meant to be a bit of escapism from the stresses of normal life and I wanted it to be one of those tracks that listeners can put on to get a taste of summer coming through their speakers and forget about everything else for a minute. Music is a massive escapism for me both in making it and listening to it. When I was producing this tune everything seemed really bleak at the time and that’s what initially inspired the female vocal lyrics, just wanting to get away from everything for a bit. I then hit up Scrufizzer and we went studio where he put down a playful response to the female vocal which completed the tune.”
