Nine years after his debut release on Tigerbeat6, the label's prodigal son Cex has finally returned home.  BATAILLE ROYALE, his tenth full-length, finds the incorrigible Baltimoron using the experience gained on his epic wanderings to crossbreed his hometown's native dance music with the wicked strain of IDM that he helped pioneer at the start of the millennium.  Having grown up partying to the anxious, overdriven sound of Baltimore club, Cex has little interest in trying to duplicate the work of the scene's titans-- like Rod Lee, DJ Technics, Dukeyman, and Scottie B-- instead opting to push the sound to its trippiest limits by incorporating his equally long-standing passion for the exquisite European electronica of Autechre, Vladislav Delay, Pan Sonic, and Basic Channel.  This highly original blend (which we like to call "Freedom Club") has captivated Baltimore's exploding underground music scene, where you can often find the Cexman presiding over dirty dance parties like some kind of gonzo Gandalf, playing marathon sets late into the night.  The first eight tracks are also available on two limited 12"s from Cex's own Must Finish imprint.
