FACT mix 242: Felix K

From deep techno to shark-eyed junglism: an immense, immersive mix from Berlin’s mighty Felix K. The Felix/QNS style – agile, minimalist but crucially rude dnb with a strong, tunnelistic techno influence - is instantly recognisable. Contemporary comparisons can be made with the scuttling, detailed constructions of Rockwell, the abstract beat science of T++, not to mention the early work of Instra:mental, ASC and other NonPlus affiliates, but the music also harks back to the tough, aerodynamic rollers of Photek, Doc Scott and Metalheadz in their heyday.
