Drum ‘n bass instigator Photek was for a long time a man of many monikers, one of which was Studio Pressure.

Despite being dormant since ’96, today the producer revealed via Twitter that there is a new 12″ due under the name, and you’ll be pleased to know that it bears all the hallmarks of the classic Photek sound we know and love. Nudging up into the 170bpm realm he’s avoided for so long now, there are even nods to his old sample sources with those stone-cold classic percussion sounds and stripped back beats, take a listen below and then go dig out Modus Operandi again, you won’t be sorry.

The 12″ will be released on vinyl and digital some time in October, via Photek’s own Photek Productions imprint.

FACT TV recently went record shopping with the legendary producer, you can take a look here.
