Pangaea - Hex/ Fatalist

So... Pangaea's latest effort is out this week... I've already got my copy. You?

Hex/ Fatalist is brought to you by Untold's Hemlock label with Pangaea's only other release via this label being a collaboration with the labels head honcho.

To be honest with you, I don't even know where to start with this one. If you're not familar with Kevin AKA Pangaea's body of work I strongly suggest you check our his back catalogue. Where a lot of other producers have a signature which you identifiy as being there's I struggle to find one in his work. With Burial you have the tick, tock metronome beat, Pearson Sound has that little drum beat... but thats probably what I love so much about his music - every release does sound different from the last.

Fatalist hits the ground running with a beat and short a but slightly aggressive vocal sample you know is leading to something big and it definitely delivers with those extra nuggets of sub-bass dotted through-out.

Sinister by name and by nature, Hex has a real tribal feel to it. It's the kind of track you know sends everyone nuts when it drops in clubs (haven't heard it yet but I know i will do soon). The choppy vocal really does a good job of hyping you up.

Hex/ Fatalist is available in all good record shops and download destinations so no excuses!
