[Release] Trex burns the Pardise with his new EP on Lockdown
The ‘Burnt Paradise' EP capitalises on a vision which Trex has worked on in sonic solitude for quite some time. It's angry, yet understated, a perfect mixture of moving basslines and dark atmospherics. Title-track ‘Burnt Paradise' provides exactly that, becoming the centre piece and providing you with the first slice of Trex's repertoire. With weighty sub and clattering hi-hats, the frequency ebbs and falls from segment to segment. Each layer adds yet more definition to the track's composition, becoming an intimidating blow for Trex.
‘Trife Life' is subterranean, providing the depth of Trex's capabilities. It's a brooding number, one which doesn't let up and keeps taking you lower between each break. Each crafted section is as crushing as the next and soon you'll be unable to pull yourself from its grasp. On the other hand, ‘Cloudy Eyes' is a more tantalising take on Trex's production, with elevating bass notes and rattling skits peppered throughout. It's still aggressively heavy, but remains intricate in its design. It proves the vitality that Trex injects into every one of his crafts, an amazing balance of hard lined drum & bass and class.
And finally, ‘Crumble Down' finishes the EP. Yet again, you're driven across Trex's ingenious designs, with clattering percussion and expertly manufactured LFO. If you're looking for an artist who doesn't conform, then Trex is for you. And even if he isn't, you'll still become enamoured by the power of his cleverly fashioned beats.
Release Date: November 14th
