Whether you know him as the chest-thumping dubstep producer Skope or bow down before the neuro-driven prowess he expresses under his drum & bass alias Malux, London-based Alex Chambers is a force to be reckoned with on and off the dancefloor. With both of his aliases absolutely smashing it on a technical level, it’s Alex’s ability to transform that knowledge into a raw, visceral dancefloor experience that continues to elevate him to the upper echelons of the bass music scene.
To get a sense of just how much power he has at his fingertips, check his Neutron EP as Malux on the Prototypes’ own Get Hype Records. Featuring four rough and rugged bits aimed strictly at the dancefloor, Malux charts a tooth-rattling ride through a sinister world of dark atmospheres and tech-driven hooks sure to have the masses begging for more. While bits like “Fail Safe” and “Watch Out” drop the hammer with inimitable style and the title track whip-saws its way to the sweet spot, it’s the jaw-dropping “Glue Worm” that’s our go-to cut right now as the strychnine-laced beats and anabolic bottom end make this one a future classic in the making.
The full EP is out now so cop yours here and keep your eye on Malux as the best is no doubt still to come!
