Aus Music affiliate and No Idea's Original boss Huxley is back (following up some great releases by Boxia and J Phlip) with "Unconscious Competence (Spider)" a moody and slow burning dancefloor journey that's just made for drifting with its hypnotic vibes. Tring's finest also serves up "Weapon 2 (Grinding)" which is definitely a departure from his usual style, but we were really feeling this one. It is a tough and stomping industrial techno workout, with steely rhythms and druggy vocal loops on top and balanced out by generous servings of dark strings and white noise washes. Have we piqued your interest?
UK producer Huxley launches his label with a techno-oriented release. The title track is a storming workout, its deep building chords married to a muddy, murky bass for a thrilling, peak-time workout. On "Salvia", he goes back to his UK garage roots; the rhythm has a stepping feeling and the bass booms and belches like a malfunctioning jet engine. However, it's only a temporary diversion, and the main style here is techno; this is audibly the case on the Vin Sol remix of the title track, where tough claps and robotic bleeps unravel over a slamming ghetto backing track.
