RAXON Input Robot EP ELLUM AUDIO
Ellum Audio welcomes back Raxon for another of his cosmically minded techno EPs.
Egypt-born but Barcelona-based, Raxon is at the forefront of the melodic techno scene thanks to always well-designed sounds on Diynamic, Kompakt, Cocoon and more. As a DJ, too, he explores an interplanetary sound that has seen him on the billing at influential festivals and clubs worldwide, from DGTL to Resistance Ibiza at Privilege.
He opens this one with the superb ‘Mantis,’ a terrifically twitchy and astral track. Robot vocals are stitched into the mix with turbo-charged synths and a looping bassline over heavy drums. It’s the sound of intergalactic warfare with a real sense of electronic funk and cinematic design.
Then comes ‘Input Robot,’ a jostling broken techno groove laced up with sleek cosmic chords. Alien life forms live between the beats, and the elastic bass keeps you moving as the track rolls on through a turbulent night sky.
The ‘Mantis EP’ is another innovative techno exploration from Raxon.
