"UK-based Hypercolour enter double figures with label co-owner and electronic beat-meister Alex Jones and his superb Bed EP. Holding down a residency at London's The End, releasing on Turbo, Viva and Glimpse Recordings as well as previous involvement in the seminal Big Beat Boutique and Electric Stew nights, Alex Jones already has a cast iron reputation, but his Bed EP looks set to push things even further. Opening with the aptly titled 'Humid,' a warm drummy tech-house roller crammed with production tweaks, Bed EP sounds like a winner fresh out of blocks and that doesn't change with title track 'Bed.' An organic, percussive slant on the minimal template, 'Bed' bangs but retains the depth and roundedness that Jones is swiftly becoming known for. Pokerflat man and general production safe-hands Dan Berkson remixes 'Bed' into a Detroit-tinged, chord-laden house track which just reeks of class and soul. Hitting the nail on the head, Berkson titled his mix as 'Effortless' -- a truism if ever there was one. At a mere ten releases old, UK-based Hypercolour is regarded as one of the finest purveyors of house and techno around and Jones has been instrumental in this."
