It’s been a long hot summer for DEXT; A string of quality releases and remixes from the likes of Alden Tyrell, Bodyjack, the Zenker Brothers, Lo Shea and Oli Furness plus a label showcase at Privilege in Ibiza. Only 4 releases in, the label has fast established itself as a standout player in the game.
“DEXT Recordings are Killing it right Now” tweeted Skream earlier this year and he is just one of many who are singing this new label’s praises.
As we head into 2016, DEXT’s fifth vinyl outing presents a new release from Callahan who is one half of Mak & Pasteman, the duo who have delivered a string of club killers over the last few years. This new solo project takes his music into the deeper, darker waters of house and techno whilst still keeping that UK flavor that DEXT is known for.
On the EP he’s thrown down for us, he carves out 3 intense bass-heavy workouts that hit hard on the floor but display subtle layering and accomplished synth work, culminating in an absolute banger of a release.
Livity Sound’s Hodge steps up on remix duties. The Bristol based producer is gaining high praise left right and centre, and it’s easy to see why as he pulls out a killer reworking of Don’t Need. Hodge pushes the original into another dimension and rounds off the EP in fine style. Fans of his will not be disappointed.
