Hexadecimal – Reform / Restore (Album Review & Competition)


For your chance to win a copy of Reform / Restore send an e-mail to with HEXADECIMAL in the header and I will pick a winner at random after 03/12/12. UK residents only.

Hexadecimal (Scott Reeder to his friends) returns to Distinctive for his second album titled ‘Reform / Restore.’ Every breakbeat fan should know of him but if you’re just discovering Hexadecimal then you might like to know he made his name in 2002 after remixing Sound Alliance for James Zabiela’s debut mix compilation. He then topped the DJ Magazine chart with ‘Brain Machine’ and produced the opening track for the Plump DJ’s much acclaimed Fabric Live Mix CD whilst delivering a stack of singles and remixes that were hammered by all the breaks top players.

Reform / Restore is the second Hexadecimal album and a concept based around some pretty insane life experiences includng a near fatal car accident and surviving the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes. These kind of life changing events may have stopped some people in their tracks but have only spurred Scott on to produce more and he has come up with some of the best material of his career. In his own words “Reform / Restore is dedicated to anyone who has faced a near impossible situation and with the odds stacked against them has used positivity to help turn their life around.”

On this album he takes more of 4/4 approach then earlier work but still with the breakbeat and bass sensibilities that we know him for.

Album opener ‘Sweat Tears Of Blood’ is a rumbling slice of dubbed out house with hard hitting kick drums and warping bass that sets off things nicely.

Second track and the first single to be released, ‘Cracks’, gives us a classy female vocal over techy beats and bass with a definite Hybrid feel to it, which is certainly no bad thing.

Tracks like ‘Ain’t No Disco’ and ‘Boom & Bust’ are proper head down, dancefloor chuggers with huge drums that will find a spot in a wide range of Dj’s sets with the slick breaks/house crossover approach.

‘Grow & Change’ is one of the standouts for me with its fusion of acid, breakbeat and Dubstep that really steps things up a notch.

‘Open Your Eyes’ employs the vocal talents of Melbourne-based artist Dub FX over spaced out dubstep licks and echoey bass drops.

‘Emotive’ is another dubstep vocal track with Kurnel Mc spitting over the half time beats this time.

‘Trauma’ gives us a twisted mixture of synth bass, dub skanks and rocky guitar licks.

The album then ends with the melodic and somewhat soothing sounds of the breakbeat laced ‘Which Way’, featuring Ingrid Hakanson on vocals.
