About this item
The last time we heard from Jex, he was cruising through dancefloors with his 2015 slapper "Studio E" on Running Back. Three years later, Jex returns with "Bad Timin' Vol. 1," a four-tracker made for working DJs on the newly christened Bad Timin' label. Ranging from the scorched-earth acid of "Zone Phased" to the melancholic deep of "FEE WIFI," the EP has a bit for all club dwellers and party freaks.
A pleasant and fun-loving ethos characterizes the EP, but that's not to say that Jex dunt take it deep. His ear for a wobbly lead or squelchy b-line is second-to-none, while rampant and intricate drum programming ensure the tracks are powered with a solid rhythm section. Basically this is ideal fodder for DJs working long nights and extensive circuits - all four tracks are highly utilitarian pieces, no languishing in self-absorbed ambience or spoken word cuts here; just four belters for extended mixing and dancing pleasure - get involved!
Matt says: Gotta love records like this... four tracks, all collated in sympathy with each other for the working DJ to get maximum mileage out of. Really nice sounds too...
