Budoka, much underrated and overlooked German producer, co-founded the label Tilt-Recordings seven years ago primarily as an outlet for his Drum & Bass productions. Ever since, he has released annual tokens of his constant production improvement on the label's vinyl series. The material he worked on since the release of TILT010 in 2009 is now ripe and ready to be put out into the world. So, today, he is starting the 2010 season of the label's digital only series T-Files by delivering a digital EP (it is actually his T-Files solo debut because his only tune on there so far was a collaboration with DJ Malice).

Both tunes are techy bits in Budoka's trademark handwriting, highlighting different aspects of his musical mind:

"Echoes" comes in with a dark, mysterious and very catchy theme which instantly draws all listeners' attention and makes the tune a definite sure shot in combination with its evil, throbbing bassline and deep space soundscape. The tune turns out a heavy roller and proves that Budoka can do more than just generic Neurofunk midrange-tools: he makes deep music for the dancefloor in his own style.

"Tubular" has more of a classically paranoid techy feel, an almost oldschool-ish atmosphere despite the modern, sophisticated sound techniques beneath the musical surface. It plays a lot with midrange/bassline combinations, empty space and ancient wooden stabs more common to the historical 1990s period than recent Drum & Bass trends. Tubular is one of the tunes that openly show just how much the early sound of Ed Rush & Optical on Virus has been a key influence and great inspiration to Budoka; like "The Happening" on TILT005, it brings that certain feeling into a strong tune with today's sound standard.
