Huxley - Rag & Bone Ep
After a succession of new signings including Recloose, Tom Trago and Paul Woolford - Aus Music return to their original roster and roll out another solid 3-track EP from label mainstay Huxley who - in a monumental pairing - enlists the help of Chicago legend Roy Davis Jr. With a grand total of 8 Aus records under his belt including his lauded LP ‘Blurred’ - Huxley continues to return with a sound that typifies the label - intricate dance that music that packs power and emotion in equal measures.
The ‘Rag & Bone’ EP kicks off with ‘Do You Feel Me’ - a track that seed Roy Davis Jr. and Huxley meld moody synths with a tough, rattling low-end. A striking vocal runs over subtle flecks of acid and bending melodies that make for a pensive trip before ‘Weapon 3′ dials Carl Craig-esque tension with rough, tribal drums and razor sharp sweeps. The Dub of ‘Weapon 3′ then mellows the tone of the original and rounds off a varied pack of dance floor bombs.
