The London-based stalwart known as Trex continues to bring his untouchable drum and bass sound to the underground, this time via the ever-essential Audioporn Records. Having flexed on imprints ranging from Mac2, Chronic, Lockdown, Ingredients, Flexout Audio and Blendits, Trex delivers a heavyweight four-tracker that’s filled to the brim with razor-sharp beats and bone-crushing bass.
While bits like “Escape from Shaolin,” “How Things Are” and “Days are Numbered” are sure to bring on the dancefloor damage, “Screen Time” is where it’s at for us at Bassrush HQ. Right from the start, Trex lets the heads know what they’re in for, as eerie pads, shivering atmospherics and a haunting vocal stab bring on the classic warehouse vibes. Once the bottom end roars to life and announces the tune proper, get ready to stomp and step your way onto the dancefloor as the top end takes over and the groove elevates the energy to an even higher level. It’s the perfect mix of head-nodding dark vibes and straight-up dancefloor funk that’s sure have the heads bubbling all summer long.
