Mixhell are a Brazilian electro duo Iggor Cavalera and Laima Leyton, who recently teamed up with Mutado Pintado (Paranoid London) and Joe Goddard on the Crocodile Boots EP after some jam sessions post-DJing in 2015.

Now Soulwax have remixed the track which was recently trailed in their Beats 1 2×2 show, and comes on a remix package alongside Goddard and Party Nails.

It’s a banger that has that recent Deewee magic and comes with a video directed by Mutado Pintado:

Iggor Cavalera says “this video is an amazing compilation of mad ideas from Mutado’s brain mixed with the low-fi images of Laima and himself on a duet between the confused red neck and a Portuguese/Brazilian spoken girl.”

As revealed recently Mixhell are playing with Soulwax on tour.

Here’s the original EP with the full one dropping on January 27th:

Holy Ghost!

Crime Cutz

DFA’s synth pop and disco dons returned this week.

Previewed last night and released today, ‘Crime Cutz’ is a return to form for the New York duo on DFA Records. Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel’s best work walks the line between synth-pop and disco and this new seven minute tune struts it including an appearance from the East Coast Inspirational Singers Choir.

The song is taken from an EP out April 29th.


Paranoid London feat. Mutato Pintado

Transmission 5

Filthy squelchy acid.

Originally released in 2014 on vinyl only, the music on the English electronic duo’s recent self-titled album lives up to their limited self-promotion (no press shots). Available digitally since November, their Tiga-esque acid house music (they feature on Tiga’s recent album No Fantasy Required) with an electro feel has been finding new fans, myself included. Sometimes all you need is a synthesizer and some minimal grooves to get your point across.

A to the point manifesto works too:

“If you like your music melodic, deep, well made & produced jog on. This is the real deal: dirty, repetitive music for DJs & dancers. ha-how-ha-how-ha-how-ha-howse nae shon.”
