Digilfex is what happens when you leave someone alone in a studio for two months with a collection of synths and flashing lights.
Noted producer Vee Kay has spent the summer creating electronic tracks, ranging from instrumental , dance inspired soundtracks to pop influenced vocal numbers, working with live instruments and synthesized nose-makers to construct an albums worth of music.
Instrumental led arrangements such as Vector Sigma and Sureshot, with their heavily compressed drums and ever building melodies, are a perfect example of the wall of sound type production that Vee Kay has been acclaimed for bringing back into his production as of late for Three Kings High.
Additionally, with About Time and Vertigo, arrangements are used to keep the music from placating, ever evolving through the listen and keeping the song fresh as the tracks progress.
Vocal tracks Hate The Player and Sticks and Stones are provided by Amy West, and are a great showcase of her abilities as a stripped back singer, augmenting the melodies provided, as well as layering complex harmonies, enriching the sounds and arrangements of a track.
Joe Eden takes a step to the left to provide vocals for On My Soul, a great blend of live drums, combined with textured and processed guitars and synthesizers, where vocals are manipulated to carry the main melody of the verses.
Flexifit is a step to the side for Vee Kay, with this album being a an experiment in sound manipulation and production techniques, as well as providing an energetic and eclectic mix of musical ideas. Something of a side project, though no less thought out or any less heart put into it, Flexifit has been a labour of love and welcomed break away from the Hip Hop scene that Vee is predominantly known for.
