Veterans of previous Mayan Audio releases, Essex-based duo Kritix are back with MYN006, the All Of Me EP.
Combining years of experience of different sides of the music scene, Alex and Phil crossed paths with a shared passion from drum & bass. Hard graft in the studio has resulted in a unique sound and a strong and healthy project which they have labelled Kritix. Hooking up with the Mayan Audio label has given them an outlet for their music, which has resulted in the four tracks on display on MYN006.
The EP begins with the title track, featuring Jenny Jones. Piano meets synth, meets old skool beats in the intro, before Jones’ strident and emotional vocals kick in. The drums are added to, the bass starts to boom, and you know Kritix are on to a winner with All Of Me. Feel the flow, and feel the EP get off to quite a start. Next up is the deeper, darker We Are Here, which enters some new territory for Kritix. Almost industrial in its influence, this is a mighty slab of funk. Feel the space age vibes as Kritix create an entire universe through their music. The drums will attack, the bass will destroy, and We Are Here will be a statement of intent from the artists and producers. This one is just big.
Into The Deep is another turn in the road, with flowing, liquid flavours the order of the day. Melodic vibes underpin the tune, with flashes of funk sitting over the top. More variation is on offer in the beats, which fluctuate and build in turn. Closer Pogo rips the fabric of the universe with some crazy, off-kilter effects and full-on bass madness. A radical and invigorating end to the EP.
At the same time as the release of this EP will be Mayan’s 1st year anniversary from when the label launched in September 2014 and will also see them putting on their first event at Club 65 in Vauxhall, London. Showcasing their own exclusive talent, special guest artists on the night and including a live PA from Jenny Jones performing the title track from the EP ‘All Of Me’. All set to make a great celebration for the imprint! If you like your music in different colours and flavours, the All Of Me EP is for you.
