The boys are back on Phobiq and introduce us to yet another page of their production story.
“Crank” kicks things off with a bubbling bassline, before letting plucky stabs take control while loopy samples provide the necessary momentum. The apocalyptic, arpeggiated breakdown acts like the extra icing on the cake.
“Optimus” is up next and holds the cavernous vibe down with heavy use of droned-out synths, grinding hats and eclectic sonic manipulation.
