Graze melds the musical mannerisms of Adam Marshall and Christian Andersen, members of a growing squadron of Canadian electronic ex-pats, in Berlin. But, both also have roots in Toronto’s scenes. Founder and curator of the New Kanada label, Marshall secured his trailblazer standing through a steady stream of lush techno constructions. For his part, Andersen was initially influenced by drum ‘n’ bass and metal, before taking to the choppy waters at the confluence of bass music and techno. Andersen brings his striking rhythms and warm bass beds while Marshall corrals it all into impeccable sequences. On their new EP, for New Kanada, they retain Berlin’s techno spirit while throwing in the best of London: a medley of garage and drum ‘n’ bass in small doses, propped up by ubiquitous basslines.
