Crankdat, JT Roach team up for charged Monstercat collaboration, ‘Better Without You’
After a relentless release schedule that stretched across the duration of 2020’s lockdowns, Crankdat took a brief hiatus before bestowing fans with his first track of the year, “Better Without You.” The new cut features singer/songwriter and electronic mainstay JT Roach, arriving via Canadian electronic powerhouse Monstercat.
Serene, melodic, and subtle in the intro, “Better Without You” blends Roach’s captivating vocals with a chugging build-up, culminating around Crankdat’s buzzing future-bass arrangement as the track pushes forward. With a multi-layered approach, distorted vocal chops, and crisp percussion elements, the track is an electric comeback for the lauded producer. Touting bass blow-outs that level crowds with battering low-end, as well as tracks that boast a more atmospheric and uplifting appeal, “Better Without You” is easily tacked on to Crankdat’s versatile catalogue.
