Capping off a Monday dentist trip with some delicious synth work from DMX Krew. It's been a while since I scrolled through his soundcloud and it seems that much like Venetian Snares, Ed's been a busy lad as of late. I should come back more often cos I inevitably find something new to binge on every time I'm there. This time it's Radioactive Leak, though DMX Krew has always had that retro edge to it this one does feel sightly different, methinks it has a certain vaporwave/future funk slant to it, and at the risk of sounding real cliche again parts of it would be right at home on a Sega CD game.
He's also done a new age album since last I saw, fittingly called New Age Travellers. Here I was expecting full embracing of he cheese a la so many other New Age records, MIDI sax, dolphin and whale noises you know?. Well it ain't that, instead it's more lovely synth based chill stuff. I'm mad in love with this one, shame it's a tad shot but it's quality every time. Getting slight E-Z Rollers vibes off that intro, and the whole thing really just makes me want to play VA-11 HALL-A again.
