Ram Records’ newest super-group Mind Vortex is poised for total dancefloor domination this year with their newest release–the highly anticipated Hotbox EP. The east England duo has been turning heads ever since Andy C dropped two of their tracks in his acclaimed Nightlife 5 mix, and virtually every DJ from BBC Radio 1 has been spinning their tunes ever since. The duo have been increasing their footprint on the scene since 2010, having already released four tracks under the Ram imprint in addition to representing the Ram crew behind the decks at Fabric, one of London’s most popular nightclubs.
The EP is a double-A sided rinse out, featuring the massive Hotbox and already popular Now It’s Time. Hot Box is an aggressive, hard-edged track whose foundation is built around an intensely modulated lead synth and a 2-step drum pattern. This tune will most certainly be working crowds into a frenzy in the months to come. Those who were fortunate enough to hear Andy C’s Nightlife 5 will recognize Now It’s Time–the funk-laden roller with punchy horn stabs. Less synthetic than Hotbox, Now It’s Time flows at high viscosity with its rounded bass, R&B vocals, and wah-guitar samples. Both tracks provide very different vibes, but both are absolutely wicked tunes!
