James Dexter - Creature EP
Gruuv welcome back fast rising UK talent James Dexter the label to deliver his ‘Creature’ EP in late February, featuring four groove-heavy original productions.
London’s James Dexter is a producer that just seems to keep getting better release by release. Owner of his own Inermu imprint, the ever-impressing talent’s slick blend of stripped back, percussive house has found favour amongst some of the industry’s most respected names, from Jamie Jones and Sidney Charles through to Archie Hamilton and Andrey Pushkarev. Following his most impressive year to date, with releases on Deeperfect, Bondage Music and Little Helpers to name just a few, Dexter now returns to Gruuv with another commanding four track offering entitled ‘Creature’ that looks set to ensure the UK DJ/producer picks up right where he left off in 2018.
Opening the EP, title track ‘Creature’ sees Dexter employ a medley of driving low end tones, swirling melodies and trademark infectious vocal snippets, whilst ‘Renegade’ combines shuffled percussion licks packed full of swing and bubbling sub bass throughout. ‘Split’ switches up the aesthetic as hazy, dubbed out pad swells, and punchy claps wander forth, before ‘Confusion’ rounds out proceedings in style, revealing further slick, rolling drum arrangements and hooky vocal samples.
James Dexter ‘Creature’ EP is out on Gruuv on 22nd February 2019.
