About this item
A supreme exercise in futuro-breaks from Xantrax here on forward-gazing label Ecke Records. Complete with a mix from UK-footwork pioneer Addison Groove this should get you skipping & swaying into 2020 in fine style!
Taking the lead is "Tekline", a murky, unfurling cut fuelled by off-kilter tribal drum work, bubbling bass delays and modulating synth flutters. Addison Groove steps up, reshaping "Tekline" with choppy vocal cuts, dubbed out chord stabs and organic percussion floating atop the originals hypnotic groove.
"Linetek" opens the flip, as the name would suggest acting as a counterpart to the lead track, taking a 4/4 approach rhythmically while introducing a similar modulating bass line alongside chanting vocals and a taut, strung-out melody.
"0121" then rounds out the package, an angsty, dynamically unfolding composition laid out over four and a half minutes with droplet synth delays, heady bass swells, spoken word vocals and crunchy broken drums.
Matt says: Strung-out tekno breaks with a UK-footwerk remix by Addison Groove. Upfront pressure for the future heads.
