From San Francisco to Valencia - Naive and Jacktone present a split EP by Gayphextwin & Pépe.
Jacktone Records and Naive have combined forces to bring you a split EP featuring the jagged punk techno of San Francisco's gayphextwin and the melodic breaks and bass of Valencia's Pépe.
gayphextwin unleashes her in-your-face, grungy approach to electro and techno as furious drums and slicing acid bass scrape against feedback with frenetic results. The sound is refreshingly direct, distorted, and punk as fuck.
Pépe draws from the best of early 90s rave influences while constructing his exciting, modern sound. Filtered breaks and classic drum machines support melodic echoes and bright grooves.
The two artist take advantage of the split EP format to remix each other. Cross-pollination leads to hybrid sounds: Pépe remakes gayphextwin's dirty beats into a rave anthem while gayphextwin brings her gritty tones to bear on Pépe's crisp electro. [info sheet from distr.]
