Next up on Modern Ruin is a 4 track EP from Infekto - an alias of Finnish bass music stalwart, Rico Tubbs. These two inventive originals taking influence from uptempo bass music are ably supported by remixes from Modern Ruin regulars in Sideswipe and The Renegades.
Escape is a mellow breakbeat track, peppered with a thick subbass that is soon supplemented by a male vocal asking to ‘be free’, much like the carefree and airy vibe of this song.
Phuture is a jungle extravaganza, harking back to the late 90s in feel, while exemplary in quality of execution. Old school arpeggios support a jungle breakbeat and high pitched vocal throughout this tune.
Escape then gets the classic treatment from The Renegades as a trendy crossover between jungle and footwork, seamlessly transitioning between the two as acid and rave stabs intertwine.
Sideswipe gets the last say in this EP with his remix of Phuture which wastes no time in going right into footwork as a gritty midrange teases the listener.
