Finding her rightful home at deadmau5’s mau5trap label is 22-year-old Bay Area native Lupa. Today, the rising techno star debuts her sinister “For The Ride.” A driving production chock-full of massive 808s and compelling synths, Lupa’s mau5trap debut is unique techno for modern times.

“The goal with all my music is to create a journey for the listener,” says Lupa on her new single. “’For the Ride’ is no exception. The aesthetics of the song are loosely inspired by 90’s racing games, and I imagine the song played alongside an epic chase through a futuristic city. The majority of ‘For the Ride’ was written over the course of about four hours. I was working a summer job at night and taking classes during the day, so my time spent on music was limited. I came up with the rough melody while working and later that night when I got off, I remember running to my apartment to start the song.”
