I’m not even going to hide the fact that I’m a huge fan of Ben Lukas Boysen, aka Hecq. In the past years, Ben has contributed a Mix to Headphone Commute, and we’ve seen multiple interviews on these pages. Hecq has recently released an EP on Ad Noiseam titled Sura, as a preview for his upcoming album, and we are super excited to share with you a track from that 12″.
Hecq’s long-awaited return to the vinyl format contains two of his most insidious and intoxicating tracks as well as an equally dynamic remix by label mates Matta. Kidnapping dubstep and forcing it to perform an elegant back flip, Hecq takes the best of the genre, cleans it up thoroughly, and repacks it in a fresh, original and particularly up-to date form.
