Bible Eyes is the debut album from hotly-tipped Canadian dance producer Egyptrixx. It is also the first full length LP to be released by the fast-rising label Night Slugs.
Throughout 2010 London-based Night Slugs established itself as one of dance music’s most exciting record labels thanks to a string of excellent house and dubstep inspired singles spearheaded by Girl Unit’s synthy floorfiller Wut.
Even amongst the impressive list of artists who released singles and EPs on the label last year, Canadian producer Egyptrixx - real name David Psutka - carved himself out a niche as something of a unique. Early releases on the label showed a talent for combining the funky, synth-driven sounds of his London-based label mates with an ear for classic techno.
His debut album Bible Eyes expands on this in numerous different directions. On the album’s title track Egyptrixx layers squelchy power-synth sounds over a classic techno beat, Liberation Front is seven minutes of minimal house while Fuji Club and Barely bring beefy dubstep basslines into the mix.
As a whole Bible Eyes is a confident and impressively eclectic debut that makes an interesting, consistently enjoyable listen for any synth fanatic out there. It also does nothing to damage Night Slug’s reputation as one of the most reliable names in cutting-edge dance music.
