Neonian Vaxxor EP Demonstrates A Solid Slice Of Electronic Music

Vaxxor

Neonian – Vaxxor

It’s been a long while since I last wrote a review for Music Talks and it is a pleasure to be back. I want to kick off 2021 with a review of the Vaxxor EP from UK-based producer Neonian (aka Ian Sawyer). Hailing from Bath, England, Neonian cites his influences as New Order, Chemical Brothers and Orbital, amongst others, and it most certainly shows. I would add to the list 808 State, as the influence of that seminal act looms large here.

The title track kicks things off and I was immediately taken to a happy place.  Early 90s raves were a formative musical experience for me and the sounds on offer here – break beats, loops and bright synths – transported me back in time.  The following track begins with a colder, trance feel, but the housebreaks, samples and synths make another showing. Track three – Hypnic Jerk – dials back the pace, but the early 90s vibe keeps on. The closing track, Proof To Tower keeps the pace slow, but adds mysterious swirling synths to balance the fat bass tones and rapid-fire percussion that links Neonian’s sounds to more recent musical developments.

Released through WEATNU Records, this is a solid slice of electronic music, demonstrating a nice variety of grooves and ideas.  As a fan of 90s electronic music, this EP is right up my alley. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
