Vex returns to Rollout Records with ‘Selector / Run It’
Fastly-rising newcomer Vex returns to Rollout Records with ‘Selector / Run It’ which follows his debut EP, and Rollout’s first-ever release, back in April 2021. Since then he has continued to carve his path in the world of Drum & Bass and Jungle, with popular releases on Subplate Recordings and Hyperactivity Music, clearly solidifying the Vex sound as one that is both unique and widely appealing to DJs and fans alike.
It’s no secret that Vex has an effortless ability to switch up productions from deep, dark heavy hitting Drum & Bass to smooth uplifting jungle rollers – a talent clearly showcased in his latest release.
‘Selector’ is a prime example of Vex’s ability to provide listeners with one heavy-hitting Drum & Bass roller. The trademark ragga vocal, a standout feature in a large proportion of Vex’s productions, acts as the perfect interlude to the aggressive steppy drums that follow. However, the key element of this track is undoubtedly the warm underlying sub, cleverly tweaked throughout the duration, making this track such a memorable head-nodding roller that is sure to tear up dancefloors all over the world.
Vex then takes a trip down memory lane with ‘Run It’, a nostalgic and uplifting jungle number that’s sure to get those heads nodding. Kicking off with a dreamy and atmospheric intro, searing drums clatter into the mix with some vibey pitched-up vocals. This is followed by a grin-inducing drop with a dynamic bassline, which develops in synergy with the drum patterns and some expertly-timed samples and fills to boot. One for the jungle heads but with real appeal to fans and DJs across a range of stylistic persuasions.
Today we premiere ‘Run It’ which is right up my street and can be found below! The release drops on Friday 19th August on Beatport and Spotify and will be available everywhere else on 2nd September. Make you get your hands on a copy from here!
