The straightforwardly-named Exotic Dance Records welcomes one Deejay Xanax to their roster with this sterling 12”. We’ll let you in on a little secret: the producer behind Xanax is in fact Brian Pineyro, who is also DJ Wey and DJ Python. EDR004 is filled up with broken and tweaked jungle sounds for mangled minds: lots of fun!

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 December 2016
On the most lustrous orange vinyl this side of an actual orange, this stellar 6 tracker is by Brian Pineyro, who also trades under DJ Wey and DJ Python neither of which I've come across before. I like what he's doing here though. It takes elements of drum and bass (the skittering beats are a giveaway) and matches them to the sort of dark atmospherics you may find in the dub techno genre. It is though restlessly upbeat, the opening 'No Title Whatsoever' brings to mind the mid 90s mayhem of d&b/jungle but with more of an 'intelligent' Photek feel about it. The warm analogue synths provide the kind of 3AM vibe you may want as your legs untwist and your body tires. 'Dxanax2' continues this kind of low bpm take on jungle and suckers for those kind of breaks will have much to enjoy here.
Murky, moody and soulful dark tronics with a unique combination of pulsing techno atmospheres and stellar beat work.
