What has emerged is a striking mix of psych/hip hop cut together to sound like an encyclopedia of contemporary music. In 2010 Contaminated Waters weaved itself through various genres of music from golden era hip-hop to rock, via revered break beats, dub, and classic guitar riffs.
Here on this fresh new EP for 2011 Hendy has managed to construct another heavy nugget from the files with Cosmic Dust. The track is Bass and Beat heavy, but has riffs which Hendrix would had been proud of and all round winner which should work on dance floors and radios alike. It’s accompanied by remixes from Bristol rising star DJ Parker and Jack To Phono label mates Phase 5 Stereo.
There are HOT brand new remixes of Contaminated Waters from Benjamin One turning out a Flying Lotus inspired mix and Tom Eno has taken the same track back to a mid 70s rock steady number.
A super varied quality package from Jack To Phono HQ.
“Production sounds fat, ideas in it are a great mix of contemporary and classic” Tom Findlay (Groove Armada)
