NOTE: jacket shows some damage (2 bent corners) but VINYL IS MINT & SEALED
from the dusty stacks - the last copy of this we'll probably ever see!
"Bonus time for wax fetishists - the vinyl edition brings both the vocal and instrumental versions together, all housed in a lush stif-card sleeve. Three years after carving an unorthodox path to IDM superstardom, Cex sheds his former skin to show the world the grown man that had been buried beneath his own expectations. After years of releasing albums that he refers to as 'practice', he takes his tallest leap yet to The Next Level and proudly unravels the first strands of 'the real thing.' Produced and recorded in the homes of Cex and Craig Wedren (Shudder To Think), Being Ridden is a monumental leap forward in the career of a guy who, at 21 years old, has already eclipsed many of his heroes in creative risk-taking and execution alone, not to mention shear accessibility. Layering acoustic guitars, hip-hop beats, dense bass, bells and witty, catchy-as-hell Fresh Prince meets Eminem meets Bright Eyes lyrical flows, Cex is just about the freshest mashing of genres ever unleashed. Word, and even the man Venetian Snares adds a hip hop beat throwdown on 'Stamina' amongst the girly la la's and Bernard Herrmann string descents. What Gold Chains lacks Cex has oodles of, with room to spare. Thirteen tracks. A madbrave sonic success.
