Cyanwave merge found sound with proper dub treatments to create adventurous aural excursions. Approaching from different angles, the Seattle duo’s sound is the combination of Justin Byrnes’ rock history and Keith Kelley’s midwest rave experiences, cultured in a studio petri dish. They use a medium of both analog and digital sources to examine a world of sonic opportunities not confined by genre. The results deliver, whether observed on the dance floor by the naked ear or placed under the microscope by a good set of headphones.

Fresh from the lab, their new EP, Casual Future, is an anomaly when held up against the scientific formulas rampant in today’s dance music landscape. The vocals on the first track, Casual Encounter, are truly existential, grounding the listener in an atmosphere of fragmented electronic frequencies, clattering insect exoskeletons made of marble, and low end techno stabs that eventually give way to even deeper sub bass. Public Address, a collaboration between Santa Fe producers Ben Wright and Andrew Bowen, then restructure the original into a more straightforward groove and arrangement with out losing any of its nuances. Next, “Maintaining The Future” is mechanical and driving, but at the same time heavily emotive with the melodic sounds of a Tibetan singing bowl. Bryan Zentz, who currently resides in Portland, but with a resume of international scope, flips the script with his remix, morphing what was previously a reflective piece into a pummeling act. Cyanwave have their sound down to a science, a natural choice for DJs looking to experiment.
