Hexstatic feat Juice Aleem - Distorted Minds (Ninja Tune)
UK release date: 14 March 2005
Hexstatic are Stuart Warren Hill and Robin Brunson and this single taken from the recent LP Master View continues to mark them as musical and visual innovators.
The half step beat brings the tune in brutal and nasty, creeping along with an earie chill and as the vocal caress of Juice Aleems enters, cool and calculated the listeners knows this will hit it big on the dance floors as well as offering interest to musos and beat merchants.
The added bonus of this CD is the trademark CD/DVD freebies, the videos of Distorted Minds adding another dimension as the lyrics are literally spat out, empathic yet angry. Zero DB also do a nice, more manic remix. Hexstatic are serious contenders who we know we must keep a close eye on. If you haven't got this single, buy the LP. Very very nice.
