Making their Revealed Recordings debut in as otherworldly a fashion as only they know, the crash-landed alien duo Crossnaders venture in to new territory with the self-explanatory new single ‘Tecno’. The track is due for release November 13th, adding yet another complement to the Netherlands duo’s nuanced body of work.
Kicking off with a classic techno breakbeat, looming synths create a war-of-the-worlds type soundscape, before a big build-up drives the energy towards a landscape more familiar with Revealed fans. The declaration “1, 2, 3, emergency!” reintroduces the track’s underground flavour, while the high bpm and oscillating synths give the impression of a spaceship going out of control – the reason, according to Crossnaders, why they wound up on Earth. Having released on various globally recognised labels while working with outliers across the board such as KSHMR, KARRA, and Breathe Carolina, it appears that as soon as they prove themselves in one realm, they reinvent themselves in another with equally as much success, as demonstrated once again by the track in question.
With influences extending from Skrillex to Deadmau5, and from Dyro to Knife Party, it’s no surprise that Crossnaders continue to explore new worlds to add to their musical palette. As their story goes, they send out rescue signals via means of electronic music in the hope of reaching their home planet, perhaps the scintillating ‘Tecno’ flavour of the month could be the one that grabs their attention.
