Firstly, a huge thanks to everyone for supporting us so far – 2016 has seen the DEXT label continuing to go from strength to strength, with our Callahan and Mella Dee EP’s backed with remixes from Hodge and Endian which have been been super well received. Now for the third EP of the year from our resident comedian Bodyjack.
Bodyjack has been an integral part of DEXT since he remixed Dubspeeka on our 2nd release and headlined our label takeover of Privilege in Ibiza last Summer. We are very excited about his return to the label with this 3-tracker (and our first full solo artist EP!), and we think you’re going to dig this…
The title track “Cobra Effect” is one of those tracks you aren’t going forget in a hurry. Intense and brooding, we are hard-pushed to categorise this, but layers of sinister bass coupled with dark, driving snares and eerie synth work culminate masterfully, making this the perfect DEXT track.
“Hydra Effect” lifts the vibe with a straight up peak-time house jam with a sting in the tail. A raw-but-infectious bassline winds along under Bodyjack’s signature killer drum programming, before blasting off with something you aren’t going to expect.
Rounding the EP off is “Slowine Effect”: a proper dancehall workout (reminiscent of Bodyjack’s earlier work) and a real cross-genre party starter. The most upbeat of the 3 tracks; this again takes all the elements of what we love about the music from the past and cleverly works them into something special for the rave.
And that’s not all for Bodyjack on DEXT this year – he will be back with a one-off Ltd record called “Hot Shot”, backed with a very “Special” remixer…but more on that soon!
