CAMINHO DE DREYFUS EP (MARC HOULE / REBOLLEDO RMXS)
12" Vinyl D
Red Axes packs quite some heat, with a weatherbeaten bassline & mixes by Rebolledo and Marc Houle.
There's no denying that a new wave of Israeli electronics is rushing into international DJ crates, with Tel-Aviv's RED AXES riding its cusp. Producers Dori Sadovnik and Nirv Arzi have already turned heads with their unique style, and now it's up to CORRESPONDANT's to host the duo's psychedelically flavored house antics. Having performed together for over 6 years, Dori and Nirv amassed a considerable amount of experience handling distinctive sound aesthetics that range from post punk to underground electronics. After releasing a string of mutant house jams for well-established label outfits like I'm A Cliché or Clouded Vision, their latest masterpiece CAMINHO DE DREYFUS packs quite some heat, with a weatherbeaten bassline supporting a hand-picked cast of kinky cowbells, raspy guitar hooks and ABRAO's eccentric vocals. Pachanga Boys' REBOLLEDO is a certified master of sweaty minimalism, preferably dressing his sand- blasted beats in tight leather pants. His athletic remix of CAMINHO DE DREYFUS is no different, capping the original's opulent voicework and then spreading a thick layer of digital grease over the freshly shaved legs. MARC HOULE's approach to the vocals is similarly radical, allowing them to eratically glitch through the aether. In the meantime, a deceptively simple, but alarmingly effective bleep motive sneaks up on the listener, priming the track to shift into freaky madness at any given moment. Together with SPICY STICK, another shimmering afternoon banger from the blessed hands of RED AXES, this makes for a truly exciting package ready to hot-wire your attention span. [info from ko]
