Statix have been producing music individually for a number of years between them but only been together as a team for just over a year. Coming from varied musical backgrounds – Metal, Reggae and early Drum & Bass, their sound is dark and diverse while keeping it interesting, rhythmic and not noisy. For me this is important as there are so many new producers coming into the scene trying to make a name for themselves by making horrible filthy noise rather than music. That’s enough on that topic.
These boys have risen through the local scene and now have forthcoming releases on Rottun Recordings (The Purgatory EP) and their own Screwloose Recordings (The massive ‘Mind Over Matter’) and a collaboration with Central Spillz on Bad Influences Recordings. They’ve sent over a couple of tracks for your listening pleasure.
They have had strong support from Komonazmuk, Wedge and in particular Mary Anne Hobbs who has used Mind Over Matter for the Sonar 2009 film, played their tracks extensively in DJ sets, on air and also invited them to do a minimix. Their live show is just as important as their production, 3 DJs giving it some with the two MCs vibing off each other to create a lively atmosphere. This promo mix is built on big basslines with all their influences seeping through. Big thumbs up for this one, unfortunately only low quality but you can still get the feel for it. Tracklist on it’s way.
