131: DMX Krew



It's been about a month since Ed DMX completed the Collapse of the Wave Function series, five 12" records inspired in equal parts by quantum physics and the Rephlex braindance style. Definitely, his most experimental stuff to date. The first two releases were anonymous and then later revealed to be a new incarnation of DMX Krew. Later releases started to sound a bit more familiar with minimalist pop vocal tracks like William the Conqueror. For those who prefer CD's, now there's Wave, a best collection from the last three EP's with some exclusive vocal versions. A bit more exciting is the bonus CD for this release, which is closer to a proper Best Of collection called Our Most Requested Records. The best of DMX Krew from the past nine years on Rephlex Records, with 8 songs re-edited for the release. This is an ideal release for anyone who's never heard DMX Krew before, the perfect collection of experimental electronics balanced out with the braindance pop that Ed DMX is known for.

I posted this mix before, but to anyone who'd rather heard a bit of the style first, here's a dj mix by DMX Krew, tracklisting is here.

Hi there blucalx2, you have a brilliant blog here.

I'm a big DMX Krew fan, and was delighted when I stumbled across this CD in Bristol last year.

Did you read the interview over at Gutterbreakz?

Cheers,
