Egyptrixx gives a glimpse into his second album on with the vinyl-only cut “Water (Reduced)”.
The hi-definition crystalline world of his previous album “Bible Eyes” has sunken, submerged. “Water” takes place in some vast molten expanse, a subterranean electrical storm expressed as acid-tech.
This 12? features the reduced dub, stripped of melody to for full hypnotic effect. The full version can be heard on the forthcoming album, titled “A/B til Infinity”.
On the flip: Helix keeps bootlegging our records. He cuts up the masters and edits them up like Fruity Loops lego, applying the same post-Timbaland stutter-logic that was amplified so dramatically in 03-06 grime. Here he puts his hand to Egyptrixx’ blastbeats-heavy “Adult”, also taken from the forthcoming “A/B til Infinity” LP. The results are extremely punishing but compelling listening.
