For David Krantz, aka Futexture, beat making is not about piling drops on top of drops, but rather weaving together a patchwork of intricate, glitched-out melodies to create a dreamy soundscape for us to dance to.
Transmuting subtle vibrational awareness into tangible auditory form is the logical evolution of a lifelong musical obsession for Krantz, a 23-year-old multi-instrumentalist and producer based out of Asheville, NC. His debut full-length album, "The Science of How Things Unfold," mastered by Bil Bless, drops today, April 24 on AfroMonk Records and is available for download via Addictech.
Running the gamut of electronic music, this most recent effort is his most expansive to date, with dancehall grooves, tech house and relaxing downtempo tunes littered throughout. It's truly a breath of fresh air for today's scene. Where all too often composers will trade being genuine and true to your style for the quick and easy, Krantz refuses to compromise.
Tracks like "Allamamous" and "Searching Through the Future" are reminiscent of the marshmallow alien bass sounds of Tipper, whereas "Nightmares and Friendly Tigers" channels the glitchy IDM of KiloWatts.
With tracks this diverse in sound yet still cohesive in outcome, "The Science of How Things Unfold," is sure to be a game-changer for this young producer. Expect big things for the rest of 2012 and beyond from Futexture as he brings his brand of conscious future bass to festivals and club plays nationwide.
