Huxley – Inkwell [AUS]

A1 Inkwell

Huxley has grown up from the days of Shower Scene. He’s also currently working on a new album which apparently has a ”few tracks that could hit the charts”. This EP shouts wonders for him; lead track Inkwell features a driving bass and his signature garage infused vocal samples with a horn sounding lead. It’s a good lead track, though slightly lazy at some parts.

A2 Creeper (Club)

Nothing special here, Huxley has become hit n miss recently, a title that is firmly held by Julio Bashmore. This track sounds like it should feature on Dirtybird; thick, wavy bass, short hip-hop samples and a weak lead that doesn’t really amount to a track that shows any kind of continuity.

B1 Side Long Summer Night

Propulsive ascending bass with metal hitting tendencies, melodic lead, toned down spoken work samples and Huxley’s ability to coalesce all of this with a propagating synth shimmering through halfway makes this my favourite song off the EP.
