Another Notts talent, Anex has been carving a steady path over the last year with tunes being picked up by M.U.D and Deep Heads. His music is laid back, but consciously avoids crossing into banal territory by choice sampling and immaculately clean synths. This EP, delivered after hitting the 1000 followers mark over on Facebook, is a showcase of the variation in his styles: not easily bracketed by genre delineation, yet held together by that rarity of a 'signature sound'. 'Real' steps lightly with a nod to the dubwise root; 'Province' is more tense, lulling back and forth on a textured synth; 'Occam's Razor' works a jazz piano through the loops; and his rework of another rising talent, Vaun's 'Comatose', doubles up the half-step pattern with organ stabs and a rolling vocal sample.
