Don't You Wanna

Fat! Records
Here's a four-track EP of spectacular quality from Birmingham producer Vodex, ploughing a classic rave furrow that puts him in company with the likes of Benton, Redlight and Tessela. Lead jam 'Don't You Wanna' is the housiest effort here, delivering a warehouse-friendly, starry-eyed 3am vibe, but 'Last Hope' fires into brooding slow jungle territory with snatches of perfectly-pitched diva vox and elegant keys, and 'Your Love' ups the ante with killer rave synthwork, firing sampled breakbeats and bully boy low-end. Finally, 'My Time' is all ragga-fuelled early '90s darkcore with blippy keys and distorted 808s. Absolutely where it's at.
