Up next on 1trax a legendary house act drops a 2 track EP sure to become a familiar soundtrack on many a floor this summer.
X-Press 2 need no introduction, rising to prominence throughout the 90s and later going on to have wide spread commercial acclaim, and even notching up a number 1 on the UK singles chart. They’ve been there, done it and got the accolades to prove.
Going from a trio to a duo in 2009 when Ashley Beedle left the group to pursue solo interests, X-Press 2 are now focused on going back to their roots and making house music made for the DJs to be enjoyed on the dance floors.
'Clouded Vision' perfectly embodies a classic, driving house sound, primed for the late night terraces. A perfectly balanced groove, understated piano motif and just the right amount of rousing synth lines to build to fever pitch.
On the flip 'Crystal Clearings' uses an infectious groove over its chunky, undulating course. The injection of well-placed string melodies and piano keys provide a flirtatious edge to proceedings.
Two infectious house cuts from a duo who prove their best is certainly not behind them.
