Obeah, Prynox + Rider Shafique - ETX001

Earthtrax kick off their ETX series with 2 soundsystem ready dubstep tracks. Obeah and Prynox team up to produce both tracks, with Rider Shafique joining to vocal on '“Fix Up”.

Both tracks seem to have been developed off of clear influences across the spectrum of soundsystem music and stylistically lean close to the minimal, stripped back decorum of first wave dubstep. However, due to the additional wash of a welcome grain filling the width and depth, both tracks emit a deeper, gloomy tone. Marry this colour with the delayed trips and a conscious decision to let the low-end do a lot of the work and you are left with club ready material that isn’t only direct but also contains an almost gothic character.

Following on from that, it’s hard to imagine anyone but Rider Shafique to compliment “Fix Up” in the same way. With releases and collaborations on outfits such as Hotline, Peng Sound, Deep Medi and Young Echo [the list goes on…], the MC’s ad-libbed delivery has become instantly recognisable and makes this a perfect link up for a series to keep an eye on.
