DMX Krew Glad to be Sad A long player of new music from DMX Krew is always a welcome sight and sound, and Hypercolour continue to strengthen their association with the seasoned British producer, with his third album for the label, ‘Glad To Be Sad’. A consistent player in the field of electronic music, DMX Krew has been releasing more goodies on labels like Super Rhythm Trax, Libertine, and his very own Breakin’ Records since 2017’s last Hypercolour album, ‘Strange Directions’. Those familiar with the catalogue of DMX Krew (all 22 albums and countless singles and remixes) can expect the usual collection of first class electronic funk and modular melodies, but for the uninitiated, ‘Glad To Be Sad’ covers a wide and colourful palette of rhythm and sound, abundant on the bass and with a heavy dose of futurism in its waves of glorious synth-work and deadly drum machine rhythms.

DMX Krew Stellar Gateway Five tracks of beautifully honed, acid-laced electro from Ed Upton, aka DMX Krew, who continues to be an unstoppable musical force. To pick out two tracks, Opening Statement, unsurprisingly the first track on the EP is a complex beast, with pulsing layers of sounds and beautiful melody. Stellar Gateway, the title track kicks off the B Side, evoking an cosmic trip, with Ed channelling his inner Space Odyssey 200. Ultimately, this EP showcases what you already know, that Acid doesn't need to be in yer face –it can creep up quietly, but still whisk you away to the dancefloor. Byrd Out 12"
