Today’s tune is another from my personal archives, one of those records you don’t even remember when or where you got it from, but I’m glad it now rests in the shelves.
The Architex were a production trio consisting of DJ Kwest alongside the perhaps better known DJ Ink and J-Dub, both who have gone on to have further success in the drum and bass scene; Ink especially.
The Architex were fairly prolific on the renowned Basement Records as the label moved towards smooth Drum and Bass sound of the mid 90s. They even went on to release a full long player on Ink’s own label “Architecture” called the Incision LP (definitely one to cop if you see it).
DJ Pulse of Creative Wax and Moving Shadow on remix duties to turned this from a gentle roller into a precision cut amen workout for ’96. Nothing ground breaking to be seen here, but that chopped amen, sub bass, strings and vocal combo which seems to never get boring (to my ears anyway).
The flipside is also well worth a spin, with the much in-demand (at the time) Alex Reece giving his interpretation of “Blueprint” for the A-side.
At the time of writing you can pick this one up from discogs from just 99p
