Much like our faves Sepalcure, Graze is two fairly different producers, both well established in very different scenes. Christian Anderson (who you may know as future-bass producer XI) and techno veteran Adam Marshall met when Anderson put out a record on Marshall’s New Kanada label and the musical chemistry was immediately apparent. You can pretty much read the story in New Kanada’s release sheets; NK34 is an XI record with an Adam Marshall remix, and later that year NK42 is the first Graze EP. It was a promising hybrid of techno, house and bass tropes, but it was their LP that really got me on board. Infectious, driving tunes that balance bedroom production details with big room aspirations.
Dark Sky is just as big of a deal to us. The UK trio makes quintessential UK Bass music. Their 2012 Black Rainbows EP on Black Acre was my intro to what I thought was tech house, and lead me to believe the genre was a lot more interesting than it actually was. Turns out this is pretty wild, garage-y tech-house. Dark, funky tunes that brutalize dancefloors. But Dark Sky has many facets, and their In Brackets EP for Brooklyn’s own Mr. Saturday Night label displays a more cinematic, downtempo-influenced approach. It wouldn’t sound out of place mixed between Four Tet and label-mates Archie Pelago.
