The Voxels, a production team out of Oporto, Portugal, produce their music in what they call a “Magical Unicorn Bunker.” I don’t really know what that means, and I don’t really want to know what goes on in that bunker, but it’s working. The Voxels have already released a remix for Buruka Son Systema and an EP on Top Billin’ called “SynthMetric.” Next up is a 12” on Enchufada, a local label based out of Lisbon.
The first track, “Nasty” lives up to its name… it’s just plain nasty. Sick bassline, hesitant yet suggestive vocals and what sounds like a blues choir behind it. At 120 BPMs, the track shapes up to be either an early night party starter or a peak hour anthem. The flip “C.U.N.T”, is when the night goes from nasty to crossing the line, with a minimal techno pulse that’s wrong for all the right reasons. It’s a shameless bumping of synths and drums against an electro grinder, reminding why the party you’re at is illegal, and so much fun. Just use protection. Pick up the EP here.
And here's a free download of their tune "You & Me."
