Monday chill track with Photek’s T-Raenon
A fixture on the UK jungle scene since the early nineties, Photek a.k.a. Rupert Parkes (born 1972, St Albans, England) is best known for his role in developing the “intelligent” drum & bass genre. Photek’s incredibly detailed drum programming, has been combining a sophisticated sense for abstract sounds with jazz and classic techno influences. Recently Parkes has been more and more active in producing music for film, having worked on a number of scoring projects for upcoming features from his new home base in Los Angeles. He is now dedicated into film scoring. T-Raenon is a track that is 15 years old as it’s been released in 1996 on Op-ART. It’s an an epic ambient tune which suddenly filters up and drops into another bout of trademark Photek rhythmical wizardry. Comming off with a strong, deep 92-94 ambient techno vibe, it ranks alongside Innerzone Orchestra’s Bug in the Bassbin” and LTJ Bukem’s Logical Progression vol.1 as a landmark classic.
