[Release] Trex burns the Pardise with his new EP on Lockdown

Lockdown Recordings have ensured that they've stayed at the top of their game, delivering cutting edge music whilst still keeping their sound inherently underground. Since 2013, they've represented a host of artists, including well-loved figures in the scene's darker corners, the type to take you into the night at any notorious capital hot spot. Their roster has always ensured that the imprint stays one step ahead of its more commercial counterparts and this next EP from Trex is no different. Although only just beginning to make his name within the drum & bass genre, this offering ensures he'll continue to make gains. It gives another kick to an already growing momentum, one that'll throw his music headfirst into its audience.

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
