    - Alive / Arc

    Mind Vortex are back! And they’re back with a vengeance… This duo have pulled it out the bag again and are ready to dent 2013.

    Their new release ‘Alive/Arc’ is a game of two wholly different sides. Mind Vortex showcase their enviable range of skills: perfectly executed song-based composition AND outrageously huge, speaker splintering bass bombs.

    ‘Alive’ is up first. Striking up with a star-glazed synth and string hook that rises exponentially, we’re soon dropped into crisp guitar hooks and smooth vocals. As the synths and heated kicks re-join the mix, it’s instant anthem time with plenty of opportunities to raise a lighter or two. As the vibrant hook gets heavier and the song develops, we find the bass becoming more textured, bursting with dynamics and true sense of sonic sentiment.

    Next up, ‘Arc’: A quintessential rave hustler, it opens with rich warm rush-worthy chords softly coerced you into a false sense of arm waving euphoria. This tune has such a beautiful emotion-caked intro and then BANG!: in they come with one of the most powerful pay-offs we’ve heard for ages. A murder of basslines vie for your attention; ducking and diving and weaving and bobbing among each other, each one as brutish as the next. From spine-melting electro-soul to turbo-charged bass shock-out at the flip of a switch, it’s production techniques like this that attracted Mind Vortex to us in the first place.

    This release has two stunningly different vibes from one of the most exciting partnerships in drum & bass… With support from the likes of Andy C, Mistajam, Grooverider, Bailey, Crissy Criss, DJ Hype and Drumsound, the doors to the Mind Vortex fan club are well and truly open. And everyone’s invited!
