Later this month, the increasingly active D’Marc Cantu will issue the third outing on Richard Fearless’ Drone imprint, the “Decay” b/w “Rival” 12″. Ahead of its release, the Ann Arbor-based producer has let loose a stream of the record’s hardware-driven b-side cut. Said to be the result of an unedited session recorded in one take on Cantu’s Volca drum machine, the six-minute “Rival” builds in a methodical fashion, as static-lined hats sneak in behind tuned percussion patterns and deep, pulsing kick drums. As the track pushes along, it begins to grind down further into swelling layers of reverb, though those are eventually reigned back in as “Rival” enters its final phase and Cantu pulls apart the track’s analog rhythms.

D’Marc Cantu’s hypnotic new rhythmic tool can be streamed in full below before the Michigan producer’s “Decay” b/w “Rival” 12″ officially lands on January 26 via Drone.
