Visionquest founder and A&R Ryan Crosson and Parisian artist Cesar Merveille, as solo artists, have dropped releases on the likes of Cadenza, Desolat, Little Helpers, and MDRNTY, before launching their Merveille & Crosson project in 2011 with their debut album, DRM, on Visionquest. The album enjoyed wide-spread acclaim and spurred on a fruitful partnership that has also included a stunning Resident Advisorpodcast.
On Dreamstate, the pair present three intricately programmed cuts that aim straight at the dancefloor in their typically off-kilter style. From the deep and wonky title cut to the tripped-out glitches of "Time Constraints" and the driving groove of "Guns," Dreamstate is a welcome return from the pair and a standout addition in Visionquest's recent output.
Ahead of next week's release, you can pre-order Dreamstate here, with "Guns" streaming in full via the player below.
