Track Of The Day 9/9 – Memphis LK

'Whip'

Melbourne riser Memphis LK has built her world from the ground up.

Completely self-taught, she’s a DJ, songwriter, and producer, blending club tropes with future pop elements to locate her own voice. Breakout single ‘Letters In Concrete’ became a colossal viral moment, swiftly followed by her emphatic debut ‘EP 1’.

New single ‘Whip’ continues her journey, blending DNB elements with dazzling melodies. The bubbling vocal comes straight from the heart, with ‘Whip’ providing Memphis LK with a space to assert her own worth.

Zipping to its finale, ‘Whip’ is a self-styled anthem for “bad bitches” that seems to lodge itself in your sub-conscious from first play. Memphis LK comments: “Making dance music, I’m drawn to sounds that have conflicting moods, contrasting the hard and the soft. That’s ‘Whip’. It’s kind of a breakup anthem for bad bitches.” 

She continues: “The day I started making this song, I was carrying a 15L water bottle up the stairs and I tripped and put a hole in the wall. So every time I look at the massive hole in the wall I think “Oh cool that was the day I made ‘Whip’.”

Tune in now.
