Luminus is stoked to welcome Saxon Higgs aka Brujo's Bowl to the label with this new 4-track EP "The Sky is Falling".
Based in Wales, Saxon is a prolific artist with a unique and tightly dialled-in sound. Between his Brujo's Bowl and Beatroots project, he has developed this signature sound liberally throughout the tempo spectrum, from atmospheric dubstep, through zenonesque trance, tripped out tech-funk, to minimalist drum & bass and beyond.
Originally inspired by some of the early non-commercialised dubstep, such as 2562, his style is characterised by dub-infused chord-play, deep, earthy bass timbres, precision percussive rhythms and sublime melodies. With Brujo's Bowl, he has brought this minimalist bass music aesthetic to the trance world, mainly via his own label Triple Drop Productions, but also through Zenon Records, Glitchy Tonic and more.
Here he presents four hypnotic journeys for the dancefloor, clocking in around 135bpm. "Fooled by Fools" and "Forge" roll out on a tech-funk tip, with infectious grooves and intricate polyrhythmic breakdowns, while "Regardless" and "The Sky is Falling" take a more progressive trance flavour, laden with expressive chord-play, organic textures and deep techy bass work.
