Phat Chex – Cumberland Vibe
August 3rd, 2012
digipak CD, digital
We took our time listening to Chex’s recordings, experimenting with the tracklist. Putting the strongest tracks in the best flow we could.
From the deep broken step of opener “Ankylosaurus Magniventris” to the mighty PA testing acid infused roller “Uncertain Future”.
An early favourite, “Puxton Bridge” melds trippy vocal work into a dark dystopia. “Kitchen Sync” goes deep and wide with a beautiful oceanic trip of far off places. A properly serene piece of work.
The closer “Cumberland Vibe” goes deeper still and on vocals is Phat Chex himself with a pensive piece of meditative percussion bubbling underneath. We couldn’t think of a better track of his to close a stunning EP of sound.

“Dark vibes are the order of the day … I expect fans of Surgeon, Cari Lekebusch, Warp Records and abstract/IDM lovers to really dig this EP, especially the “Kitchen Sync” track.”
