Inxec & Droog
- Din EP
Culprit | 27.04.2018
Inxec teams up with Culprit label bosses Droog on the ‘Din’ EP, featuring another Culprit debut long in the making, LA’s own talented and tirelessly prolific Dance Spirit duo.
Culprit bosses Droog return to the label as artists with another one of their regular collaborations, following the “Lucent” release with Edu Imbernon last September. This time up is the new music from the artistic pairing that has, in many ways, defined Droog’s production output. Their musical kinship with the Nottingham native Inxec has been cultivated across nearly 8 years and in spite of vast distances that separate them. Rare but creatively intense studio sessions over the years have yielded EPs for Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, Last Night On Earth and Supernature, plus tracks and remixes for No. 19, My Favorite Robot and Noir. With their mantle proven on some of the most admired labels around, the Inxec & Droog team has now come home in making its Culprit debut with “Din.”
Inxec & Droog’s very first song together, “Unhinged” for Crosstown Rebels, set the sonic tone for the collaboration. It’s unabashedly emotive modern mid-tempo techno, brooding yet soulful, harmonic but, at times, dissonant and off-kilter too. The team’s music always strives for originality above all, forsaking the fruitless chase of trends. The three new originals on the “Din” EP show off Inxec & Droog’s range: “Monstar” is one of their brashest, most upbeat tracks, riding a dynamic acid-y bass synth riff, a vocal sample straight out of left field, and a syncopated beat. “Bodyless” is the flip side of the coin – all deep melodic poise, evoking a gentle sense of euphoria. If “Monstar” is the party-starter, “Bodyless” is the remedy for the post-party comedown. “Dega” splits the difference, balancing big pads and a melodic hook with punchy percussion and a rumbling low end.
Rounding out the release is another Culprit debut long in the making. LA’s own talented and tirelessly prolific Dance Spirit duo – known via many releases for Supernature, Superfreq, Rebellion and many others – step up with an epic nearly 10 minute journey, blending their patented crisp minimalist percussion with immaculately placed symphonic touches from the “Bodyless” original.
