Trife Life (Ill Truth Remix) Trex 5:56
Cimmerian M-zine & Scepticz 6:52
The Ill Truth rework of Trex’s ‘Trife Life’ pushes through on clattering drum rhythms and runaway LFO, peddling a bassline which quivers throughout the mix whilst giving the track a heavyweight feel. Ill Truth presents another side to ‘Trife Life’, still utilising the unforgiving production standards of Trex whilst also adding the pair’s intricate minimalism which still pedestals a dancefloor undertow. Each crashing layer of drums helps to emulate the track’s club presence, nodding to why Ill Truth are also becoming a staple throughout the UK’s live circuit too.
The standalone track from M-Zine and Scepticz ‘Cimmerian’ reiterates the sound you should expect from Lockdown’s forthcoming LP, just like its reworked predecessor. The metallic, rumbling bass rhythms and weighty drum patterns of ‘Cimmerian’ channel through each punching layer, with both M-Zine and Scepticz bringing their individual signatures for the creation of a formidable production outfit. And this is why the likes of Ill Truth and Lockdown Recordings have showcased tracks of this calibre; because it’s the perfect embodiment of the excitement which has ruminated through both sets of producers.
Forthcoming LP will feature tracks from: Ill Truth, Kolectiv, HLZ, Miso, Kyrist, Medika, Infader, M-zine & Scepticz, Cybin, Sam Binary, Octo-Pi, Wingz, DEFEX, Kontrast & Defraction.
