Sturdy psy-tech here from Huddersfield-based producer Mark Holbrook. Lead track 'Lucy in the Sky' (thankfully not in any way a Beatles cover) samples some wigged-out American nutters going on about connections to the divine while Holbrook smashes out massive synth chords with one hand and waves his lighter furiously in the air with the other. Support tracks 'Hallucinations', 'Sonic Overload' and 'Beside Me' all follow a similar psy-trance-influenced path, with Holbrook showing off an impressive knack for euphoric keyboard work and weirdy-beardy samples, should you like that sort of thing.
Genix’s productions always sound like they’ve been late night fretted over, regularly resulting in something that fair mushrooms out of the speakers. No exception, ‘Lux’ initially walks the high-wire between dark echoing, phased & delayed tech-trace and more atmospheric pad & chord-led arrangements. Break-side shafts of uplift filter in, but nothing that’ll quite prepare you for the overt uplift that’s but two minutes around the corner.
Brixton resident, B£AMS, drops a selection of short ideas on his '£300 STERLING' beat tape, featuring 10 super-sharp, chunky blasts of heavy set hip-hop. A quick-fire brace of mean, raw shit to bump in your cherry red Vauxhall Corsa.
Never to be pigeonholed by genres, here underground hard dance star Geck-o makes a trap remix of a Eurodance track! And it’s great.
