Under his alias Boyfriend, Lithuanian Vytis Gruzdys is no stranger to making serious waves with his energetic mix of tropical-inspired rave destroyers. Here under his own name he goes down a different road, more like the one he showcased on 2012's Zebra Katz x Boyfriend collaboration on Senseless, since streamed over 1.5 million times around the world. These four tracks slice up shards of hip hop, grime and analogue synth work to create something for the club and the iPod. 'Stay Gold' is a lush analogue instrumental with shades of early grime meeting acoustic drums.
'Reach for More' features Baltimore MC Rebel Conscious sounding half way between Soul Sides and Kendrick Lamar. 'Untitled' is a dramatic, cinematic piece of hip hop which has already been snapped up for the soundtrack of upcoming feature film, 'We Will Riot'. Last but definitely not least 'Writer's Bench' is a minimal dance floor workout blending tech influences and deep, deep garage.
