‘Better Than’ is the latest offering from the rawly talented mind of Brisbane-based 18 year-old producer, Callan Alexander (cln). Having emigrated from South Africa, Alexander joined the apparently fertile, Flume-bearing soil of the Australian production scene, not unlike another lost export, LUCIANBLOMKAMP. After a series of intermittent remixes and clips on his Soundcloud page, Alexander is set to release his debut EP Sideways on June 11, off which ‘Better Than’ is the first single. 

The track warps into an airy and looped-up soundscape woven from the same thread of bass, claps and fluid synths that defines XXYYXX, Giraffage and similar micro-producers who call the Internet home. Even among these parallels, Alexander remains unique. ‘Better Than’ progresses logically and shows an intelligent use of the indecipherable vocal clips that cause migraines in excess. The track sets and exciting precedent for both Sideways and the (post-South African) Australian production lineage.
