Released 20th February 2017.
Mac II Recordings originated during the golden era of drum & bass. After the notorious London record shop De-Underground Records stopped trading, Randall and Coolhand Flex wanted to keep the DIY spirit alive. Bringing together their A&R might, the two producers sought after artists who shared the same ethos. One of these artists is Trex, a long-time drum & bass fanatic from Camden who’s received a huge amount of support from the biggest players in the scene. Whether that’s Ram head honcho Andy C, or tastemakers Bailey or Grooverider, he’s been working steadily in the studio for a period of years, chiselling a name for himself amongst the generations of music lovers who would have once been the customers at De-Underground Records.
The forthcoming EP from Trex is a four-track package which features a host of punchy, aggressive rollers which show no mercy on their listener. Trex doesn’t bow to any commercial standards and delivers piece after piece of a nasty, sonic artwork. The ‘Treatment’ EP begins with ‘Raptor’, a track which surges with energy but is still understated in the way it creeps up on its listener. Filled out with clattering percussion and pitched up frequencies, Trex proves why he’s garnered so much support from a whole range of high-profile DJs.
