DMX KREW

Self-styled ‘house husband, record producer’, DMX Krew, continues his effortless stretch of releases that date back to the early 90s, with a new album for Hypercolour.

His deft melodies and mechanical, electro-tinged beats have made for some classic albums in his repertoire, from his incredible run of albums for Rephlex Records, up to 2020’s ’Ghost Bubbles’ long player for Terrestrial Funk. And so ‘Loose Gears’ marks DMX Krew’s fourth album for British stalwarts, Hypercolour, and fans will not be disappointed.

Armed with an arsenal of hardware, and a head full of futuristic visions, ‘Loose Gears’ collects eleven tracks of the customary quality we have come to expect from DMX Krew.

From the funk laden ‘Solar Transit’ to bleepy chugger ‘Dejected Ambient Twerp’, the vibrant synths and spongy rhythms of ‘Torpedo Tube’ to the beatless wiggle of ‘Xpansion 2’, there’s much in store to be savoured on ‘Loose Gears’, as DMX Krew serves up another fine selection of electronic goodies.

STAFF COMMENTS

says: Producers as prolific as Ed DMX are a rarity; but often have the luxury of simply dipping into their hard drives when a label come knocking for releases. It's more a question of curation than actually mining for content. Here, Hypercolour have done an excellent job of sequencing a plethora of tracks across an extensive period resulting in a tasty double pack from this industrious workhouse.

Fatima Yamaha

Day We Met Remixes - Inc. Betonkust / DMX Krew / Legowelt / Orlando Voorn Remixes

The first single from the long awaited new Fatima Yamaha album is the polished, Balearic-pop-disco: "Day We Met". Destined for extended radio play; and soundtracking the most optimistic of road trips, the track blows radiance through your hair with a falsetto vocal that's gonna grip the nation. 

Coming with 4 outstanding remixes by smogasboard of highly esteemed remixers; Legowelt delivers a very deep and mesmerising instrumental remix in true Legowelt style; spacious, warm and trippy. The pianoladen remix by Betonkust is probably the most powerful of the four, sheer clubgold, that, in normal times would have set dancefloors ablaze around the world.

Spacefunkateer DMX Krew takes the poppyness of the track to another level, adding extra layers and a keyboardsolo; coinciding with his current boogie, freestyle & street-soul obsession. And last but definitely not least is  Orlando Voorn with his signature sound. Hi-tech and funky; it's pretty jawdropping what Voorn achieves with Yamaha's stems. Crossover hit alert!!!

The ever-prolific Ed Upton aka DMX Krew is up next on Utter with 'Turn It On', a four-track EP of Level 42 cover versions. Yes, you read that right... as if 2020 couldn't get any stranger!

This is no exercise in irony though. This record is a true labour of love for Ed, a sincere tribute to a band he adored as a youngster. The original Level 42 tracks he has covered - 'Turn It On', 'Love Games' and '43' - all appeared on their acclaimed self-titled debut album way back in 1981, which also featured the talents of a young Wally Badarou and Atmosfear's Leroy Williams.

Ed has stayed faithful to the tracks' excellent arrangements, swapping out live instruments for drum machines and synths, vocals for vocoders.

The result is a record that retains the original material's brit-funk charm but with that unmistakable DMX Krew electro-funk and boogie flavour. It breathes new life into these classic tracks without deviating from what made them so catchy and fun in the first place. We hope they put a smile on your face too.

Limited 12" in fluorescent green sleeve.
Dedicated to Rowland 'Boon' Gould (1955-2019).
