Video Premiere: Loxy & Ink – Phoenix Rising (R&S Records)

Two titans in UK breakbeat culture, Loxy & Ink were both present at the birth of UK dance music and continue to be torchbearers. The pair have done nothing but deliver consistency with their outstanding sound over the years. Soaking their gritty UK sounds in a soothing warmth, ‘Phoenix Rising’, which is taken from the forthcoming ‘Manifested Visions’ EP, hits home with an undeniable force.

A follow up to the hip hop track ‘Manifested Visions’, this track goes on to demonstrate the duo’s mastery of fluidity in sound. As an uncompromising drum & bass pattern propels us forward, the imagination is tickled and teased whilst vocal samples soar over the track, and all whilst the heavy bass keeping us grounded in an underground reality.
