Following last yearâ€™s critically acclaimed release â€˜Overnight/Love Radarâ€™, Hectix returns to the Beta block with three electrifying reminders of why Russia is currently the undisputed premier hotbed of young drum & bass talent.
â€˜I Feel Youâ€™ launches with a soft, melodic sense of false security. With rainbow-rave blasts of unadulterated melodic vibrancy, itâ€™s euphoric enough to get every member of your floor reaching for their lighters and raise them aloft. Even those who donâ€™t own a lighter. Then BOOM: in fires one of the most outrageous drops youâ€™ve heard all year. Ravishing, rampant and truly destructive, Hectixâ€™ masterful bass magic is soaked with so much aggression and attitude it could cause riots in heaven. Truly insane.
â€˜Last Minuteâ€™ follows with anthemic glee. The soundtrack to a car chase of the future, the hugged-out synth hook tells a tale of high speed urgency, hinting at the trouble thatâ€™s lurking around the corner. Naturally another dose of trademark Hectix bass terror is forced down our earsâ€¦ And your floor will lap up every second. Grizzly, growling and precision produced; balancing this amount of hectic elements while retaining crystal clear sonics is no mean feat but somehow Hectix makes it sound easy.
For one final, switch-flipping hoorah Hectix whisks us off to planets unknown by way of a walloping, trance-informed power-hook. Once again â€˜Take Me Awayâ€™ is ignited by technicolour synth hooks that weave all manner of sonic spells while the bassline adds a thundering sense of urgency thanks to its pumping delivery. Galvanised by several lead and sub melodies, itâ€™s yet another triumph from this Russian wunderkind.
With more exciting releases in the near future, Hectix schedule is living up to its name. Just remember where you heard him first.
