Insomniax release ‘V7 Saxon Street’ EP (Part 2)
Following the recent success of Freshold’s (Insomniax) solo outing, ‘V7 Saxon Street’ EP comes the second part of his tribute to Milton Keynes’ infamous Sanctuary and its old school rave origins. As we are based in MK and previously premiered one of the tracks from the Part 1 it seems only fitting that we should premiere one of the tracks from this EP too.
Having already received support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and René LaVice, it’s clear this EP is going to do some damage!
‘How Does It Feel’, now the third taste of the thematic album, delivers grungy, grime-esque verses and tribal singing, setting a visceral tone for the carnage to come. Fusing together soulful, organic highs with gut-wrenching, floor-rattling lows, Insomniax have delivered yet another fitting tribute to the old school rave days with a modern punch. High energy, fast-paced, and astoundingly creative, this one is sure to be another favourite for DJs and fans both old and new.
Our premiere ‘London Soul’ opens on a much more ominous note, creating a foreboding soundscape with an intricate layering of sounds before those familiar jungle drums kick in amidst the fog. Sultry vocals weave in and out of rhythmic drums and amen breaks, transporting us back to our younger rave days with seemingly magic charm.
With two more treats from Freshold, there is no doubting ‘V7 Saxon Street’ (Part 2) is set to be a seminal record in the Viper catalogue, seamlessly fusing old and new in a way that will be remembered for years to come.
