Boomkat Product Review:
Nights Slugs' foreign correspondent, Toronto resident Egyptrixx, comes very correct with his second album 'Bible Eyes'. It's also the first solo artist album to be released on the label, and represents the more synth-based side of their oeuvre in fine style. He's been a member of the crew since his early 2010 12" 'The Only Way Is Up', but has been orbiting the mutant electro/Bass scene for a few years already. Ten tracks deep, the cryptically titled 'Bible Eyes' cycles through a neon spectrum of club killers interspersed with poppier and slightly more esoteric grooves. The undoubted highlight for many will be his achingly sharp pop piece 'Chrysalis Records' featuring the nonchalant female vox of Trust over his signature detuned synthlines and clipped Funky drums in sensuous, synthetic copulation. Those seasick synths form the basis for much of the album, in the two parts of banger 'Recital', to jelly-limbed effect on 'Bible Eyes' and to screwed Trance effect on 'Naples', the most melancholy and experimental moment. If you thought Egyptrixx was just all about club bangers, then this album should widen your expectations of him and Night Slugs in general. Highly Recommended.
