Pi Castillo Releases Debut Dubstep Single 'The Most Beautiful Girl'
The composer of electronic music known as Pi Castillo has released his debut dubstep single, “The Most Beautiful Girl.” The track has been released on the Mind-Over-Matter Records label. It has been circulating online lists and EDM blogs since its appearance on May 15 of 2014, and has garnered thousands of listens where it has been featured in that short time. Pi Castillo's “The Most Beautiful Girl” stands out from the ever-growing sea of EDM online for its distinctive 8-bit panache and inspired melody lines. It has also been lauded as having some of the best female vocals in electronic music for 2014 so far.
Pi Castillo cites as main artistic influences such popular musicians as Dave Clarke, Westbam, DJ Misjah, and Carl Cox, but his overall feel and tone are all him. Comparisons between Castillo and other dubstep artists are hard to make, outside of the digitized industrial sounds for which the genre is recognized in general. This is because Castillo's music carries enough attributes from pre-dubstep electronica to make him attractive to listeners of artists such as Fat Boy Slim, Chemical Brothers, and other early pioneers, while retaining all the important qualities that have made dubstep so very popular.
“It's a mix of dubstep, electro, and trap,” the artist writes of his debut. Asked to expand on the lyrical themes of the single, he quips modestly, “It's just another dubstep track :).”
Clearly, the dubstep community agrees that it's much more than that.
Ecamburn at KVRAudio.com writes of Castillo's debut single, “Much to like in this tune. Strong melodies. Very clear structure and direction throughout. The vocals are solid. I like the dubstep elements because they are more understated and subtle than a lot of dubstep tunes. The chorus with the simple bassline and vox is cool.”
Martin and Oscar, junior members at SonicAcademy.com, write, “[Pi Castillo goes] from Avicii in the beginning to Dubstep-Dada Life in the chorus – that's impressive!”
Chinese-German music producer Pi Castillo hails from Hamburg, Germany. He has been making music since the age of 15, when he bought his first synthesizer. “I've been totally addicted to music production my whole life,” he writes.
“The Most Beautiful Girl” by Pi Castillo is available online worldwide. Get in early.
