Hailing from somewhere in Spain, Mystic & Quantum is a new label created to show stories of “adventures, magic, science” and they launch in quite auspicious fashion with an album length foray through analogue experimentation from one of England’s finest DMX Krew. One of numerous handles taken by Edward Upton, Standing Stones finds the DMX Krew sound in particularly contemplative mood across a variety of tempos and can be viewed as an extension of the approach he took on last year’s Reith Tracks LP for Rush Hour’s No Label. However whereas that release saw Upton take inspiration from his surroundings on an Austrian farm, Standing Stones draws it’s creative juices from the mysterious pillars of stone that have stood across Western Europe for centuries. The accompanying silk screened artwork – which is quite lovely – extends the theme. Whether you engage conceptually or just focus on the music, this is another rewarding set from the master DMX Krew!
