Canadian DJ/producer Mickhel Patterson has been producing his signature blend of bass-centric music since 2015. Known as Gl0bal, his major releases from 2017 and onward have garnered firm support from industry titans like DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, Hardwell, Krewella, Chuckie, Dillon Francis, Major Lazer, and fellow Canadian dubstep legend Excision. After signing to Flux Pavillion’s imprint Circus Records in 2019, Gl0bal released his esteemed Insomnia EP and positioned himself as an artist to watch in the upcoming year.
After stirring much excitement with the release of his two lead singles “WYN (Watch Your Neck)” and “Believe,” Canadian-based producer/DJ Gl0bal is finally unveiling his highly-anticipated Insomnia 2 EP via Circus Records. Released at the beginning of June 2019, Mickhel’s first 4-track EP Insomnia was his debut contribution to the imprint. Insomnia 2 EP offers a cohesive soundscape that’s reflective of Gl0bal ’s signature bass and trap sound.
The first track “WYN” on Insomnia 2 brings classic trap vibes while hyping up listeners for the rest of the EP. The next track ‘‘Darkness’’ rocks the house with thumping bass drops, sinful synths, and supernatural vocals. Previously staring on NBC’s hit show The Voice, Gaby Borromeo‘s eruptive vocals make an appearance in the EP’s third track “Darkness” along with Gl0bal‘s polished bassline. The fourth track “My Will” is another highlight of Gl0bal’s signature bass and trap sound on top of a rap overlay. In collaboration with Alex Cortes, the final track “Tonight” on Insomnia 2 infuses a wrecking bassline with passionate vocals that stirs the inner emotions of listeners.
This project is really important to me because I feel like it showcases my individual story and sound as well as serving as a second chapter for Insomnia. The records on the EP are pretty personal to me and I hope listeners will be able to hear how my sound is continuing to evolve when listening to Insomnia 2. -Gl0bal
