STRT003: Herobust/Pixelord split 7 inch

Comes with two digital bonus tracks A Modem B Voxy Lady BONUS A Modem (heRobust Remix) BONUS B Voxy Lady (Pixelord Remix)

For the last 1.5 years, Saturate Records have been releasing dozens of free albums and LPs of unprecedented quality, mining the fertile intersections of post-dubstep, glitch hop, juke and future bass.

This week they blessed us with web previews of a very special split 7″ vinyl (only their third vinyl release ever) from rising stars Herobust (of Atlantarctica, Ga) and Pixelord (of Moscow). Each contributed one track, and also remixed each others’ as digital bonus tracks.

Pixelord’s ‘Modem’ builds a ascending synth riff into a grimey, hyphy crescendo of rattles and claps, while Herobust’s ‘Voxy Lady’ juices his trademark taffy-synths to make for a cinematic stomper with an epic emotional sweep. The real magic, though, is when their styles combine on the reciprocal remixes – especially the way Pixelord recuts Hero’s syrupy synths over a tight 160bpm framework.

If you want this on wax, best preorder NOW at Bandcamp since there are only going to be 250 pressed and it ships next week (6/8).
