As Vex'd, Jamie Teasdale and sometime collaborator Roly Porter have done much to expand the possibilities of dubstep. Supported by foundation-building DJs such as J Da Flex, the two former jungle obsessives “unintentionally got into a close relationship” early on with the scene, going on to record its first fully realised album in ‘Degenerate’. Over the past year and a half, however, Teasdale has escaped its gravity, emerging on his own with something like a holographic negative of that sound. His work under the names Kuedo and Jamie Vex’d, on the Planet Mu label, positively gleams with the kind of imaginings he soaked up as a youngster.
