Long before EDM, The Crystal Method (pictured) rattled the music world with their abrasive sound that melded electronic and rock. Their latest collaboration with Refracture, Going In, returns to that ’90s sensibility in full force.
UK breaks and bass producer Refracture brings The Crystal Method (pictured) back to their breakbeat roots on this track with chunky percussive breaks that reverberate like the duo’s early hits Busy Child and Keep Hope Alive. Cut-up vocal snippets pierce the surface throughout to give the track an updated lift into today’s bass-centric mania, while mid-range piano riffs comprise a catchy melody. It’s a nostalgic ode to a scene that’s been missing some solid breaks for far too long.
Going In is released alongside Refracture’s Come On as part of his EP that is out on Audiophile here.
