WNCL021 - Reviews

Latest reviews just in...

"...a collection that for the most part belongs in the club, albeit a pretty far-out one"

"...more likely to induce discomfort on a dance floor than to stir it into motion"

"...the listening experience is intense and disorientating, like wading through a murky swamp of alien wildlife"

WNCL021 - DJ Mag

EKOPLEKZ has just unleashed his new 6 track 12" EP ("Rock La Bibliotek") on WNCL Recordings and gets the honour of a double feature within the review pages of DJ Mag this month.

...more like an opening set in a dank club in Elephant & Castle than any main room affair. Muted, dubwise, spatial and trippy with a hint of low-end theory pulse.
Dubstep Reviews

I’ve been waiting for Ekoplekz to do something like this for what seems like a long, long time...these six tracks completely revel in their newfound directness.
Bass Reviews

12" vinyl (with free mp3 bundle) and digital release for sale from the WNCL BANDCAMP site
