2020 marks a decade of collaboration between Nottingham’s very own Chris Sylvester – perhaps better known as Inxec and Los Angeles based production/dj trio (also Culprit label bosses) – Droog. The successful creative relationship started back in 2010, at the infamous after-hours den & studio space, The Bunker and that very first session produced much of what still remains this collaboration’s signature release – the “Westbound” EP that was released on much-acclaimed label Crosstown Rebels. Over the past decade, stops have been made on labels such as Get Physical, Last Night on Earth, Supernature, My Favorite Robot, No. 19 and others as the quartet convened and reconvened for intense exchange of ideas, usually in Los Angeles and always shoulder-to-shoulder.
Now we get Inxec & Droog’s second release on Culprit, coming hot on the heels of last year’s release “Din.” The new single “Crenshaw” continues to explore the emotive soundscapes of the deeper strains of techno and house.
The B-side title track “Crenshaw” is on offer as a premiere right here on Discobelle – the 10-minute long track is named after the landmark boulevard traversing Los Angeles – and on it, we find a sound that manages to incorporate a subtle symphonic touch to the grooved out and highly hypnotizing track.
