After rocking the world, the universe and Asgard with his impressive edit of Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer”, released a couple of weeks ago on Belly Dance Services (and premiered here, by the way), Kuala Lumpur-based DJ and producer Ed Dix is back to our platform, this time showing his authorial skills with a banger release on the almighty and crucial British label Nein Records. “Mukadimah EP” brings three beautiful originals and three solid remixes provided by K-Effect (SXDNS062), Lusca and N.O.Y & Sandhog.
“Ominous”, the title we picked up to review, despite the dire and grim name, is not a so obscure tune as it might be implied. First of all, it is a groovy and upbeat track, especially because of the many percussive elements Master Dix creatively and harmonically put together. Yes, there are some murky synth layers and nebulous FXs, but nothing except joy is triggered by this seminal piece.
Alvaro Cabana, Andreas Rund, Attendances, Cabaret Nocturne, Connor, Curses, Duncan Gray, ID_UA, Local Suicide, Parissior, Roe Deers and Stockholm Syndrome, just to name a few, are among the artists who gave thumbs up to this release.
After two appearances in less than one month, we are already looking forward to Ed’s next visit.
