G-REX and Buku collaborate on Dual Continuum EP via WAKAAN. Following their lead single “Collide,” G-REX and Buku deliver one of their most exciting collaborative projects via WAKAAN. The three-track EP is an exemplary work of their combined production prowess. With two brand new tracks, G-REX and Buku offer a ravenous mixture of their styles. “Exotic Matter” features rousing percussion breaks, granulated synth-work that pierces through the warping atmosphere. Although the shortest of the three tracks, “Fifth Dimension” unleashes old school rave breaks, unrelenting energy, and a torrential downpour of bass destruction. As a whole, Dual Continuum serves G-REX and Buku’s forward-thinking concepts in a concise yet eruptive EP.
Following the release of their EP, G-REX and Buku can be found live on their nationwide Dual Continuum tour. Get a taste of their live sets with the Dual Continuum Tour Mix. Packed to the brim with unreleased IDs, wonky collabs, and all realms of bass, the mix tempts you further.
