Vext - Recognition / Bubble

Cosmic drum & bass excursions

  • Label: Outstanding Records
  • Catalog Number: OR 008
  • Year: 1996

Two solid, sprawling tracks of spacey jungle / DnB trippage from Vext aka Coventry producer Gavin Watton, circa 1996.

Strobing synths and a soaring vocal give the A side a (tasteful) touch of trance, while hard flanged percussion and chunky hand-chopped breaks keep things grounded. The flip is a propulsive roller, with snappy hat/snare tingle over a massive 3-note sub, all fully marinated in cosmic pads.

A nicely tuned pair of liquid DnB tools. Nothing groundbreaking, but eminently rinsable when you're in search of space.

Not an audio scrap to be found on the 'net for this particular release, so snap one up on Discogs while the gettin's good, and grip the whole zip here
