about

The first joint release from Vancouver, BC peripheral house/techno experimenters Bobby Draino and Xophie Xweetland is built for the (beat-up) boom box and the end of summer. Respective sides are bound by a decayed exuberance and a shared enthusiasm for

Draino’s side is filled out with frenetic, blown out and semi-deconstructed house. Tropical synth stabs, buried 2pac samples, shuffling, maximalist percussion, ultra-scorched textures and a stoked-on-life melodic and rhythmic energy that Omar S might enjoy, these four tracks are barely-contained and big on a smoked out type of opulence.

Xweetland’s granular, ambient techno is a more iced-out, pensive zone, with nod to drone spaces and the lo-fi psych of many West Coast contemporaries, Xweetland’s minimalist beats are filled out with a hazy, phosphorous type of textural noise.

Chrome Split’s gritty vitality converges on collaborative lead track “Thom’s Dream”, a lens-flared and melodic piece of hybrid house that highlights both Draino and Xweetland’s proclivity for treading the borderlands of house and techno.
