DEATHFACE – FROM BENEATH (BRUXA REMIX)

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

deathfacebruxaSo here’s a track that brings together two of the mightiest forces in bass-oriented underground music right now. Bruxa have remixed Deathface‘s “From Beneath”, taken from last year’s excellent EP of the same name, with expectedly good results. In other related news, Deathface dropped a new video for “Six Feet Deep”, a collaboration with @LILINTERNET; and Bruxa got a remix treatment from MADDEN, whose take on “Paper Weight”,  a standout track from Bruxa’s album Victimeyez, is streaming below.

BEST OF 2012: BRUXA

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

opp_bruxaBruxa‘s Victimeyez was easily one of the most exciting full-lengths to have dropped this year, which would probably explain why it made it onto our albums of the year list. Here, the Portland trio lists their favorite tracks of the past year. And although a lot of these have been on heavy rotation with us as well, we have managed to come across a couple of discoveries (that Daniel Savio track, for example). Voilà – Bruxa’s top ten tracks of 2012, in no particular order:

> Zebra KatzIma Read
> GrimesGenesis
> 100sMy Activator
> RL GrimeGrapes Alla Vodka
> Purity RingBelispeak
> Freddie GibbsThuggin’
> TNGHTHigher Ground
> Daniel SavioRevolt
> Mykki BlancoWavvy
> Sticky KPersian Algebra

Like BRUXA.

BEST OF 2012: ALBUMS

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Out of all the amazing records that came out this year, we found Laurel Halo’s Quarantine to be the most exciting (and can’t help but feel sorry for the people who have a problem with those vocals). Julia Holter misses the number one spot second year in a row, but I don’t think she’d mind since we both loved Quarantine. Speaking of which, another cool thing about 2012 is that we got to hang with a couple of our favorite acts. Anyway, there were a lot of cool records we enjoyed but just hadn’t spent that much time with them, and then there were, of course, a lot of records that we thought sucked – we’ll leave you to ponder on which of those categories whatever you think we missed falls into. These are the albums and mixtapes we’ve found ourselves returning to the most this year, listed in a somewhat particular order:

BRUXA – PAPERWEIGHT PT.1&2

Monday, August 27th, 2012

BRUXA are one of our favorite bands right now so we got pretty excited when they announced their debut full length the other day. VICTIMEYEZ is out digitally September 1st via ????? Records, with a cassette release due in October courtesy of Sweating Tapes. Two new songs are streaming below, you can download them from ????? and IVIYH respectively. By the way, it’s been exactly two months today since we posted BRUXA’s radd (hah!) guest mix that made us go back to nineties’ trip-hop and listen to Post all summer. Thanks, guys. This new mix for Textbeak is even sicker though.

NC GUEST MIX#58: BRUXA

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

The latest guest mix comes from the up and coming Portland trio Bruxa, comprised of Bianca Radd, Derek Stilwell and Saint Michael. “Witch-step”, “horror-gaze”, call it what you like, Bruxa draw from a bunch of very different influences, creating a fresh take on the now-hip dark bass-heavy beat-based music. Their debut EP was released via Sweating Tapes last Summer, and the new one is supposed to drop soon. If you haven’t heard Bruxa’s killer remix of ‘Killing Time’ by labelmates Nightmare Fortress, do yourself a favor and grab it right here right now. Peep Bruxa’s Soundcloud for more goodies. As for their heavy-chillout trip-hop guest mix, Bruxa hooked us up with some classic, more and less known 90’s electronic, trip-hop and hip-hop gems.
