Garnering early support from the likes of Dylan Rhymes, Meat Katie, and ATM, Hedflux's latest release aims to pick up where his previous left off!
"And that's when revolution happens" says the sample in Revolve, just before the tune drops. Well, Hedflux might just be kick-starting his own revolution right now...
Remember when tunes had depth? Remember when there were tracks that didn't shoot their entire load after the first drop, but evolved, developed and crescendo'd over time? Hedflux is bringing that vibe back to breaks music, with an entirely fresh and forward-looking sound. His last single Mindcell topped download charts everywhere, hitting the coveted number 1 slot in Beatport's Breaks chart, and remaining in the top 10 for an incredible 10 weeks!
Now fans rejoice!...and everybody else listen up, because Hedflux is back again with two exclusive new tracks for Broken Robot, which pick up where Mindcell left off and raise the bar for quality even higher. Razor sharp beats and a fat, rolling bassline are the order of the day in Revolve. Acidic chirps and squawks are intricately woven around the beat, twisting and turning as the track progresses and builds. A short breakdown ensures, then the bassline shifts gears and we're off again until finally the main breakdown kicks in, featuring the vocal sample from which the track takes its name.
Rhythm Prism is an altogether more minimal affair, which wouldn't sound out of place in a techno set, but retains that inimitable Hedflux sound. There are no cheesy hooks, big obvious samples or hands-in-the-air build-ups here: just an expertly-crafted techy-groove which drives us relentlessly forward, while glitchy percussion and some awesome sonic acrobatics provide the interest. An incredibly useful DJ tool for those deeper sets!
