As experimental as Gavin Russom can get, his Crystal Ark project has seemingly become the place for him to play with long-form electronic music traditions. Building on disco and classic house, “We Came To (House Mix)” is dance music in stretched out forms, drawing out hypnotic loops and steadily building drums across the track’s near nine-minute run. It’s functional but also worth multiple, headphone listens to discover all the subtle layers Russom stacks as the track winds up. The “We Came To” singe is out right now on DFA.
