malux Turbine / Fonk (12", £1.75)label: bad taste
Bad Taste Recordings hit 2016 in severe kinetic style with a fresh pair of tracks launching the identity of Malux, the new Neurofunk-focused moniker of established bass producer SKOPE (Inspected). With "Turbine" and "Fonk" the agenda is clear – energetic, funk-fuelled DnB driven by detailed low-frequency design and a boisterous rave vibe. * 'Turbine' carries with it a stripped aesthetic, with a percussive pattern driven by the snare and wonky plucked synth work. This is heads-down, bass face material for ravers to get into step to. 'Fonk' on the flip hits a cheeky upbeat tone, switching slickly between bass textures punctuated by staccato sonic fragments. * With support from scene titans such as Andy C, The Upbeats and radio play from Friction on BBC R1 and Crissy Criss on Kiss FM, Malux has immediately caught the attention of those who know. Bad Taste hits the nail on the head again, introducing another name with a big destiny into the halls of DnB.
