K2T and Hex combine for ‘Broken Leaves’ EP
After the phenomenal success of his debut album, ‘The Tranquillity of Being With The Self’, Detached Audio label boss K2T finally returns to the centre stage, this time teaming up with DNB Dojo owner Hex. Hex comes fresh from dropping a remix of ‘Arashi’ by Sirus in DA’s previous release.
K2T and Hex come through with a two-track single that evokes nostalgia with its old school flavour while fusing modern aesthetics.
Our premiere ‘Cascade Failure’ leads the way, with a crunchy hip hop beat carrying a mystical piano hook before leading into a choppy jungle-flavoured roller with cascading melodies and atmospherics.
On the flipside is ‘A New Leaf’. Keeping the energy high while taking a more classic approach, glitched drums pave the way for catchy hooks and chord progressions, making this track an earworm. Watch out for some live guitar playing by Hex himself!
K2T & Hex have had a number of pieces of work together, including remixes for each other, as well as a free download track, ‘Embers’, which dropped earlier this year; and it is clear to see that the fusion of their sounds is both natural and novel.
Check out our premiere of ‘Cascade Failure’ below. The single drops on Detached Audio on 20th November with all proceeds from the sales being donated to the Windrush Foundation. So, make sure you grab a copy and support this very worthwhile cause from here
