Egyptrixx: A/B Till Infinity (CD, Night Slugs, December 2013)

Egyptrixx combines rattling beats with a rich, dark, meaty synths and a fine array of squelches and clangs. It’s the sort of music that demands to be described as cinematic, but as something I find can be a positive or a negative, and here it points to the reason I have reservations about this record: it’s propulsive and melodic and I find it an enjoyable background listen but it feels like the kind of soundtrack which doesn’t work as well without it’s movie. (Those clever people at Boomkat suggest that he should have been asked to score the new Robocop movie: this perfectly invokes that darkly dystopian future.)

I bought this from Juno. They call it Bass.
