New artist Plex makes his first outing for Blame’s label with these two storming cuts, bringing a harder edge to the deep, space-age 720 sound. With basslines to die for and enough beats to rattle the most reluctant dancefloors, these tunes are certain to turn up in DJ boxes across the d&b spectrum. Prepare for impact...

Edgy hi hats and echoing synth stabs initiate breakneck beats laden with jittery, brittle percussion. A drone-like low frequency swell slowly builds - before bursting into a tearing cyber bassline fit for devastating every dancefloor in its path. A well-timed break is the lull in the storm, before machine gun snares herald the return of this high-octane, aerodynamic groove, whilst sophisticated, spaced-out keys and atmospherics form an otherwordly backdrop. Pyrotechnics are guaranteed - an absolutely stunning debut.

Plex takes it deep for the flipside, ushering in the vibe with filtered retro synths and metallic fx. Impenetrable beats frame future-electro bleeps, whilst stabs of keys low in the mix add a warm, neo-jazz element. Meanwhile an acid bassline creeps in, fusing with the beats to complete a low down, hard-edged groove, soon to be overlaid by a robotic synth hook. Subtle, minimal use of vocal and the continuous filtering of the bassline make this a synapse-stimulating tune with enough clout to cause some serious seismic shifts. Not for the faint-minded...
