Halogenix – Take The Lead EP


halo_.jpgLabel: Dispatch RecordingsScore: 7/10 

Regular Dispatch collaborator Halogenix once again sets up stall on the label with some new fresher than fresh beats on his latest EP, Take The Lead

Opening up proceedings with the title track, pads and atmospherics set the tone before we are introduced to some tight stepping drums and a subtle drop that gives us the harmonious vocals of Zoe Klinck. Stripped back and minimal, the bass line drives enough to give the track groove but not too much, allowing the vocals to take centre stage and they do so accordingly. However if you prefer your Halogenix beats minus vocals there is an instrumental version to satisfy that need.  To Each His Own is dubby subbed out two step lick, Halogenix offering our ears melodic Rhodes chord progression which filters its way in and out of the hectic drum programming. Up & Down is a straight up no nonsense roller, perfectly weighted drums sit atop a stabby bleeped main melody and underlying vocal harmonies which Halogenix works within the main bass line, giving it an added warmth. 

One of the scene’s most talented beatsmiths, Halogenix has once again brought more quality 170+ music to the Dispatch Recordings table. 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
