New Release: Exile & Mark XTC - New Skool EP
Mark XTC and Exile have been destroying speaker boxes for years and have certainly produced an anthem or two in the process. Stick that acid face back on and flash up your lighter as this wicked collection of tracks certainly combines the best of old and new. Rinse out!
‘Take Me Away’ comes fully correct with a combination of mid 90’s happy hardcore vocals and gritty, bass notes. Who would have thought the flip of ‘Six Days’ would be creating a storm all over again but in a totally different format? One thing is for sure - it works and does a fine job of crossing a relatively unexplored crossbreed.
The microphone champion GQ provided his calm and collected vocal ability on ‘Instinct’. An intimidating trip through vocal led breaks and nasty bass that instinctively causes front to back head movements. One for the corner shufflers.
Remember The X? How about the label Jump Up? Fear not as ‘New Dawn’ gets a well respected relick with 2019 drums, wonky pitch shifted bass and those silky smooth vocals you may well know and love. One to pull up a second time!
It’s 6am and the lights are on, what do you do? Drop ‘New Skool’ for starters and watch the sea of wide eye ravers spring back to life. This end track to the EP is nothing short of a secret weapon, causing speakers to self combust and the latest pair of Air Max to shred into thin air.
Bag a copy here.
