One of the nineties foremost producers of electronic music and real drum n’ bass, Photek is set to release some new productions in the new year, as debuted by Benji B in a scorching session on Radio 1 on Wednesday night.
The Ipswich-to-London-to-LA producer, renowned for his classic albums ‘Modus Operandi’, ‘Form & Function’ and the chicago house leaning ‘Solaris’, has focussed on film scores in latter years, lacking a full release under his most recognized moniker for over 5 years (the brutal ‘Baltimore’ and ‘Mercury’ with protégé Teebee being highlights of the mid-noughties).
Benji B’s show covered a triplet of new Photek material, taking in dubstep ‘Avalanche’, real electro subtleties ‘101’ and 140 bpm house music ‘This City’.
Other highlights on the show include a live session from Hyperdub’s Darkstar, a scorching Mala remix, and new tracks from Pangaea and R1 Ryders.
