After 7 years of hard work and endless dedication, the Exploded Drawing family is reaping the recognition they rightfully deserve. 2017 has found the crew expanding into the festival circuit, playing the legendary Low End Theory in Los Angeles, bringing the very same Low End Theory to Austin, receiving recognition in the Austin Chronicle and Texas Monthly within weeks of one another, and releasing vinyl and cassettes via the legendary Fat Beats distribution to commemorate 7 years. Exploded Drawing: “7 Years” Compilation features all of the producers you’ve come to know and love from the crew, an introduction featuring KUTX‘s Art Levy, and it’s all come together on a beautiful full-color gatefold (designed by Michael Scheel) with color vinyl pressings in 2 options. I am so happy for the crew, and forever honored to be among its ranks. Here’s to countless more years of continued fun and hopeful success.

from the digital desk of Fat Beats:
“Anthony Maintain comes to the label via Boston, MA. He moved down to Austin a couple years ago and has been making his own special brand of twisted and dark music as one of the original performers at Austin’s Exploded Drawing. An MC in his own right, this LP showcases his unreal soundscapes through his production, and invites you into a world of terror set to a kick and a snare. Pure Original now out of Texas, he is and has been part of our extended family since the beginning.”
Purchase of this cassette gets you 13 original songs, plus a killer digital version containing an additional 13 remixes from Lo Phi, Soundfounder, Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice, Kinder and more. Support good music.
