Kuedo is the alter ego of pioneering bass producer Jamie Vex’d, and soon he is going to be releasing his first full length under the moniker called ‘Severant’.
Produced with a striped down set up that favours spontaneity over studio noodling, Severant has a lighter, less abrasive sound than Jamie’s previous wok as one half of Vex’d, drawing influences such as Tangerine Dream in to a sticky soup of juke and coke rap as Jamie explains; ”I wanted to capture a really futurist sentiment, kind of melancholy and grand luminescent, so I used the instrument that most evokes that for me – that sweeping Vangelis brass sound.”
You can hear clips from the album on the Planet Mu website. We also recommend that you check out his Kuedo remix of King Midas sound which is released today. Severant will be released in October.
