MEXA returns to it’s harder roots and sound with the latest from Vegas’ own lords of the dark and underground, Spacebrydz and Justin Baulé.
‘Devil Drugs’ is just as doomed and dangerous as the title suggests. Hypnotic voodoo rhythms lure you in while heavy haunting unyielding penetrating percussion hits hard to take you to that other level. The mesmerizing perilous male vocal is none other than the reading of an infamous quote from Paul McCartney on his experience with LSD, and just as the drug does, this track will take you on a trip. Perfect for heavy twisted late night vibes, this track is an instant go to for late night or heavy dance floor heaters.
‘Fuego Contenedor’ keeps that same darker vibe but pulls you in more passively. While still maintaining that tech core, there’s a much more subtle and sexy approach to its hardness. Highlighted with more spacey synths, the track builds slowly to a deeper darker eerie vibe.
The EP closes out with ‘Too Close’, sampling the classic favorite ‘Too Close’ by NEXT from the height of the R&B days, the second that familiar beat and vocal comes in it becomes an instant feel good favorite. The way they cut up the vocal sample and give it edge with heavy synths takes the bouncy track to adopt that harder eerier vibe evident on their first two tracks.
