Droog makes Culprit label debut with Spectral EP
Culprit label founders Droog have finally made their label debut alongside young Spanish talent Edu Imbernon. Sure, it’s over half a decade after Culprit began, but in the case of this EP late is definitely better than never. True to its name, the title track is a haunting slow burn of a track that ripples over swells of melody and a tip-toeing rhythm.
A remix by Hot Creations‘ star wAFF opts for a more acid-tinged sound, while Watergate Records’ Ruede Hagelstein opts for a sultry tribal direction layered with lush percussion.
“Smokefalls,” on the other hand, grabs you fiercely by the collar and leads you down a dark and sinister path of chilling notes and a driving beat.
