Blanke Unveils “Crashing Hard” ft. Casey Cook As First Single From Debut Monstercat EP, ‘Emergence’



JP Orchison has taken the Blanke project from his native Australia to the world. Now the genre-bending producer releases his vulnerable melodic bass record, “Crashing Hard” with singer-songwriter Casey Cook, the first single from upcoming debut Monstercat EP, Emergence, due next year. 

“Casey and I have been meaning to work together for a long time. She’s an incredible vocalist and we have worked on similar projects and songs before but never one directly with each other. When she came to me with the idea of the song I jumped on it straight away and was blown away by the messaging and the emotion emitted. It was easy to work together and flowed so effortlessly.” – Blanke

“Crashing Hard” follows Blanke’s Monstercat debut with “Used To Losing You,” a collaboration with helloworld, Luma, and JT Roach, and “Talk To You (feat. Sofia Quinn).” This newest installment is a return to his anthemic-melodic side. “Crashing Hard” captivates listeners with Blanke’s cathartic melodies illustrating an emotional tale paired with Casey Cook’s heartfelt vocals. Straight away, the therapeutic chords unravel sensations of newfound happiness while Casey reflects upon her unparalleled emotional depths in a tumultuous period navigating through a backdrop of poignant news, woven with the exhilaration of new love. 

Fans can hear “Crashing Hard” from Blanke live at his upcoming stops including Home Bass Festival, Apocalypse Festival, Ember Shores, and Wildlands Festival. If one thing is certain, this isn’t the last time you’ll hear from Blanke on Monstercat, as his debut-label EP, Emergence, is set to arrive in 2024.
