Brazil’s superb collaboration Mixhell, also known as ex-Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera, his DJ wife Laima Leyton and long time partner and producer Max Blum, are back with their newest imprint „Exit Wound“ (taken from their forthcoming debut album „Spaces“).
Exit Wound sets the scene of a hypnotic space trip driven by euphoric percussion, groovy bass and smooth vocals by Greg Puciato from hardcore punk band The Dillinger Escape Plan – who gives the track a certain indie, disco funk vein.
The tension grows into a mess of Puciato’s screamo perfomance and drops back into the vibey space atmosphere. Everything merges into brilliant indie-electro-mash up served by Mixhell in their own inimitable style.
The pack is completed with three remixes, contributed by power duo Zombie Disco Squad, Swedish bad boys Savage Skulls and last but not least by retro-disco producer Aeroplane.
Zombie Disco Squad dials it down to a more minimalistic well thought out remix and focuses it on rough brooding basslines crossed with haunting vocal bits from the original. Future Techno aspirated with some slight of darkness was created here.
Whilst Aeroplane spins it back to a 80s dreamy retro jam – Casio oldschool synths dipped into a funky electro beat, which gives you the feeling of driving a red Testarossa through Miami while listening to Debbie Deb.
Finally Savage Skulls morphs the original to a ravey dancefloor smasher, framed by heavy stomping kicks and energetic fidget synths.
A track which is built for the crowd and to destroy the crowd.
