About this item

Tel Aviv superstars Red Axes continue their world tour on K7, following their disection of the African diaspora with a freewheeling journey through Vietnam. This four track of post-everything, gloabalised goodness sees the duo stick with their genre melding framework, teasing house, disco, post punk, world music and synthwave into a freaked out melting pot for the deep dance floors. Getting loose and limber on the A1 the duo dish out a slinking live bassline, nuanced percussion and a steady, club ready 4/4 under a dreamy fx laced vocal from a lost Ca trù shellac. Things only get weirder on the A2 as a pulsing one note bassline underpins tropical idents, bamboo flute and another beguling vocal, which gradually gets lost in the electronic abstractions, off key bleepery and psychedelic interference. Flip it for "Track 3" and see what happens when you follow the trail from Hanoi to Goa. Tunneling trance bass-sequences, traditional flute tones and fire poi everywhere on this one - someone take me to Cyberdog! Things get a little more airy on Track 4, as bending strings, chanted vocals and optimistic melodies ride a calming beat, cleansing the palette and closing the EP out in fine form.
