Canblaster "Clockworks"

It was just last month that we gave word of the forthcoming EP from the exciting young producer making jams under the name Canblaster, and now we can share with you the first track to leak from the tunesmith's Master of Complications EP. After a few spins of the fiery "Clockworks," one specific word comes to mind: big. From the get-go, Canblaster unleashes a massive dance beat, which he quickly pairs with bubbling sonics and, whaddaya know, the tick-tick-ticking sounds of a clock. But it's after the first drop that "Clockworks" really takes off. The Frenchman alternates between a stuttered rhythm and a smooth house groove adorned with crisp percussive noises—switching between those hyped-up and classic vibes for most of his frenetic song. That mix of refreshing, club-ready sounds is further proof of the strengths in Canblaster's schizophrenic production style, and speaks even more to why we love his work the way we do. (via RCRD LBL)
