Red Axes are a Tel Aviv based duo comprised of DJ and producers Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi, founders of Garzen Records. Their own productions and remixes have appeared on labels such as I’m a Cliché, Correspondant, and Hivern Discs. They announced the release of a new EP. Voom is out on December 6th via Dark Entries Records. Listen below.
“Voom” kicks things off with wild percussive toms and bubblegum female chants over a fat electro break. “Doom” rightly brings us into a dark, menacing cave where see pulses of light in the form of carefully placed synth lasers. “Mister Q” serves up metallic rhythms a la Front 242 backed with a strobe-ready sound. “Prblems” is the 10-minute anthem that closes the EP in typical Axes fashion: militant drums, battered electronics and lovingly drowned traditional instruments hypnotically pulse and reverberate. All songs have been mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The EP is housed in a die cut jacket that keeps the dancefloor vibes with a bold, DIY design by Eloise Leigh.
