“Persistence” Pays Off For Local Bass Goddess Whipped Cream With New EP

Whipped Cream, born Caroline Cecil, is one of those success stories that makes us smile from ear to ear when you hear it. Obsessed with music from a young age, but didn’t pursue it until an accident forced her onto bed rest, and the rest is history.

This amazing powerhouse has gone on to play multiple stages at the famed Shambhala Music Festival, including this past year where she played one of the most talked about sets at the Ampitheatre on Friday afternoon. She’s solidified her place at the top of the PNW heap, not to mention she just supported fellow female trap heavy Alison Wonderland in Bangkok. Later this year, she’ll head down to Idaho to support for Diplo at Life in Color.

After churning out production after production, including collaborations with the reigning champion of club rap Lil’ Texas and Portuguese virtuoso Holly, among many others, the one question on everyone’s lips was . . . where’s the EP?

Well, our patience has paid off because on September 19th, Whipped Cream dropped her debut EP titled Persistence, naturally so. Caroline has been working night and day on releasing this absolutely stunning collection of music, each imprinted with her signature sound and “telling a story of self-awareness and untiring persistence,” as stated in the bio of the EP released on Nest HQ.

The title track starts off lush and melodic, gripping you in and preparing you for a journey through sound and rhythm before smashing down into young Whip’s signature frenetic sound. You can almost see her jumping up and down on stage, wild silver blonde hair whipping back and forth, with her classic sneer-grin on her face.

Next, she rallies into Ignorant, which is hands down one of the nastiest tunes to come out this year. An absolute smasher of a tune that evokes a dance floor so grimy you slip into it.

Finishing off the EP is, without a doubt, the stand out of the album—Selfish. Coming out of the gate slow and warping, you can feel the pulse starting to build almost instantaneously, finishing off hard, but still keeping that slow, methodical tempo throughout.

Without a doubt this is one of the best EPs of the year, and we are so proud to share it with you all. Stream it below, and grab it from Nest HQ!
