Bobby Draino "Crux"
Vancouver's Bobby Draino has been steadily refining his brand of raw, blown-out house for some time now. Today, the producer is premiering his undeniably beach-ready track "Crux," a rough, hardware-obsessed slice of bright, tropical house. There are hints of Omar-S's more jovial, synth-heavy moments in Bobby Draino's latest, as well as a back-to-basics approach similar to the ethos of the L.I.E.S. label, a link further solidified by the production's razor-thin tape hiss. "Crux" is part of a split release with fellow Vancouver artist Xophie Xweetland, called Chrome Split, which will be out as a cassette and digital package on August 20 via 1080p.
