Wakaan added yet another uncanny release to its catalog this past weekend, as Australian-born producer Hydraulix dropped his huge new single ’Spanner’ on the label.
A frequent collaborator on Disciple Records and Quality Good Records with names like QUIX, Eliminate, and Moody Good, it was high time to see the talented producer come into his own.
’Spanner’ is a hybrid of trap percussion and new-school breakbeats that’s really dynamic. As soon as it picks up to a fever pitch, the intensity backs off shadily and clicking coils trail over the silence before another wild barrage thunders away at its own pace. It’s challenging and drips with sound design confidence of an artist aiming to break new ground.
