the new vex'd record on planet-mu is phenomenal. intense and powerful, head shaking stuff. both in disbelieve at just how great it is and physically; listening to it with phones on will jar your skull. it is brutal sonic armageddon. it penetrates and crushes, resonates and rumbles: total audio assault.
pretty much on top of the dubstep game right now, vex'd have produced the first defining album of the scene. the cd format will inevitably push the sound forward in terms of access, the label will undoubtedly expose the sound to a different group of dance music fans. ultimately a landmark release. punishing peers and destroying boundaries, pushing them forward.
