HYPEDIGI045

Alex Jones is one artist currently riding high on every level. As one half of ‘the management’ at Hypercolour (alongside Jamie Russell) and one half of techno twins Dense & Pika, Alex strikes solo once again for the ‘Antigua EP’.

Title track, ‘Antigua’, holds a slightly jazzy theme, chopping up stabs over a hefty kick/tom pattern and rough and ready hats. The second half of the track pounds that extra level, as the jazz stabs get dubbed out for a decent late night sweaty basement jam.

‘Igor’ blends gospel vocal samples and menacingly booming beats to maximum effect, the use of lazy piano chords giving it a softer edge, but without compromise to the swinging groove, wandering bass and punch of this lead track.

EP closer, ‘Frizza’ gets proper twisted, lightning bolts of FX and mangled vox lash out over another on point and heavyweight drum pattern, perhaps closest to the Dense & Pika style on this cut.

The ‘Antigua EP’ finds Alex really hitting his stride, recent releases for Hotflush and remixes for Paul Woolford (as Dense & Pika) plus previous Hypercolour efforts have put him in good stead to become the dependable tech-master he is today.
