We were thrilled to see this one appear in the release listings as In:Flux Audio make their welcome return alongside the truly unique sounds of Nekst, who steps forward for an explosive six track project. We begin with the title track 'Nekst Level', a neurotic bassline roller, driven by its skippy drum textures and sumptuous synth design. The neuro themes continue on 'Lab Notes' as powerful LFO movements come into play before we hit the final original 'Essex Street' which features a fantastic vocal appearance from Orla O'dwyer. On remix duty, Tik&Borrow send 'Nekst Level' to the stepper factory, Brent Kilner reworks 'Lab Notes'; into a bassline belter and Pavv uses his unique 2-steppy style to overhaul 'Essex Road' into a UKG inspired wobbler.
With this one the Future Follower imprint has pulled together a fantastic selection of beautiful originals from Nekst to form the 'Origin' EP. We kick off with the stunning aquatic UKG soundscaping of 'Digital Fortress' before dipping into the more UK bass inspired gritty synthesis of 'House Bass'. The reesey theme continues as we roll into the skippy sounds of the title track 'Origin'. We then finish up heading down a darkened road as the growling bassweight of 'Body' descends with it's sharp clap heavy 4x4 drum patterns.
