Frijsfo Beats is proud to welcome on board a UK electronic music hero in Ed DMX, AKA DMX Krew. Ed offers a new kind of treat from the archives, fusing two-step swing and spacious dubstep rhythms with his immediately recognisable analogue style. The package also includes ‘Creole 2’, an up-tempo ragga rhythm complete with shimmering electronic steel drums.
Fans will know Ed from prolific work on the Aphex Twin-founded Rephlex label. The ability to mutate a Detroit-esque electro sound into sick hybrid forms is something he’s ably proven on releases like the ‘Collapse of the Wave Function’ series.
The material on ‘2K3 Beats’ dates from 2003-4, but now seems the right time for these atmospheric tracks to see the light of day. The demand for fresh takes on post-garage music (in the dubstep community and elsewhere) should see this EP readily picked up.
