At this point, Fryar and Houman need to make it Facebook official and fuse their individual brands into one giant voltron of cutting-edge bass.
Matthew Fryar and Houston Harrelson have already released their Duality EP via Wavecraft Collective, the southeastern bass crew to which they both belong, which sports other members like FRQ NCY, Dugosh, and Ghost Litter. Now the pair take their sound international with a forthcoming EP on legendary experimental bass label Saturate Records.
Tomorrow, fans will get to hear the Crossed EP in its entirety, though a couple previous singles have been premiered elsewhere this summer. We have the privilege of debuting the last track from the EP, “Ricochet,” which if I may say so myself is most emblematic of what this duo is capable, and evocative of Saturate's most shining moments over the years. Both Fryar and Houman have a handle on the sound designery aspects that send tingles up the spines of their contemporaries, but don't get bogged down in the granular synthesis and overt showmanship that neglects the desired effects of a proper dance floor banger.
Fans in the southeast can see their dual weaponry on display this fall. Fryar and Houman play a special B2B set in Asheville, North Carolina as part of illanthropy's Halloween show October 25th at Asheville Music Hall.
Crossed is out August 13th.
