“The ‘Spaces’ album and accompanying live shows are sure to elevate Mixhell into the premiere league of electronic acts.” – DJ Mag
Mixhell, an electronic collaboration between former Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera and DJ wife Laima Leyton, are releasing their highly anticipated debut album June 11th on Last Gang Records(Crystal Castles, Boys Noize, MSTRKRFT) in liaison with Boysnoize Records.
Their first single, Exit Wound, featuring vocals from Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato, was released to rave reviews, being coined as a subtle but sexy track perfected by the live percussion performed by Cavalera, resulting in a tightly coiled, urgent masterpiece. DJ Mag called the track a rock and rave delight with sleazy vocals, squirrelling electronics and power-funk drums. The music video for the single premiered on Noisey, and was directed by Brazilian phenom Thiago Zanato.
The album, mixed by Gui Boratto, blends old and new, taking the best elements of both dance, electronica and rock to create a fresh and exciting sound that’s entirely Mixhell’s. Their live performances combine live percussion and dance fusion to create an incredibly engaging, wild and exciting show. In addition, they’ve enlisted the help of constant studio collaborator Max Blum, who will add bass guitar to their already unique and intricate sets. With a few dates lined up this summer, including the legendary Glastonbury Music Festival, and a full fledged tour in the works, it doesn’t look like Mixhell shows any signs of slowing down.
