London’s DEXT Recordings continue to strengthen their catalogue adding to originals and remixes from Dubspeeka & Vision Z, Komon & Appleblim and Bodyjack with their latest offering from the Manchester based Oli Furness backed up by Clone mainstay Alden Tyrell.
This, the third release on DEXT carries the same raw brawn as its predecessors and is a rattling meld of Jungle, UK Techno and House.
Throughout his previous releases on NDV, Morris Audio and his own Music Is Love imprint, Oli Furness has astutely touched many bases whilst drawing for the tape driven kicks, nifty sampling and intricate drum work that have been his calling card since the off.
His ‘Decisions’ EP brings these tools together and opens with the title track that drives a thunderous kick under crunching stabs and a starkly contrasting vocal sample. ‘Jungle Book’ then sets a hefty break tumbling towards the introduction of a thick, flexing sub and bubbling synth patterns.
Next up, Dutch master Alden Tyrell adds to a catalogue that reaches right back to 1999 and weighs in with a stripped and burly revision of ‘Decisions’.
Powerful analogue hats are set crashing over a concrete kick and cavernous stabs before ‘Let It Go’ snowballs behind a classic break that gathers a jagged synth pattern and 90’s vocal samples that are sure to send the floor into rapture.
