Iggor Cavalera is best known for his part as the drummer of Brazilian super-group Sepultura. Having toured heavily around the globe, winning several ’Best Drummer’ accolades and sold over 10 million records, Iggor’s incredible ability to project emotion and evoke thought through his percussive talents is being given an outlet in the form of his exciting collaboration with his DJane wife Laima Leyton, MIXHELL.
Iggor and Laima took MixHell from the studio to the stage, adding uplifting elements of rock into electronica and giving it all an organic, intuitive and complimentary touch. Armed with an MPC Sampler, turntables, CDJ’s, mixer, a full drum-setup and miscellaneous percussions their eclectic and energizing live stage performances are pure eye-candy with music created on the fly. MixHell do things in a big way and in doing so, are delivering a show that fully explores their vast background of musical influences. A quite engaging and unique experience which the whole BNR crew have once more experienced during MixHell’s headlining show on last years Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project, held in Berlin.
The MixHell line up for 2013 and beyond boasts a new member in the shape of Max Blum. For a number of years now, Max has been a part of the MixHell studio setup – collaborating on beats and basslines and generally adding to the overall groove. In 2013 he steps out of the studio and on to the live stage as the new and improved LIVE shows from MixHell include Max on bass guitar.
MixHell had their first appearance on Boysnoize Records back in 2009 with Brodinski’s Remix of their one-shot single ’Highly Explicit’, where they gained respect in the emerging scene almost overnight. But it wasn’t until last year 2011 when their first debut EP ’ANTIGALACTIC’ saw its light, that brought them finally up to the worldstage of the EDM scene. Their smash hit was nothing but a mindblowing combination of sounds, that sees the act dive into rock, electroclash, and cyber punk, creating a spaceage anthem.
This day, MixHell are taking it to the next level with BNR proudly presenting their long-awaited debut album ’SPACES’ being released beginning of 2013. We will give you heads up soon enough, but can already announce that prior to the fully executed masterpiece MixHell will touch base with the 1st single ’EXIT WOUND’ (Oct. 29th), which will come with an impressive remix package. The group of remixers confirmed so far reads like a who is who of today’s electrodance heroes (more details to be revealed soon). A fitting force for a release that knows no bounds. To round it up for ’EXIT WOUND’ there will be a music video, directed by US based brazilian video maker Thiago Zanato, starring the lead singer of the known hardcode punk band ‘The Dillinger Escape’ Greg Puciato.
As you can see, sticking to one genre only when expressing yourself artistically is totally overrated. BNR give their word for it!
Stay tuned for more info on MIXHELL’s debut album ’SPACES’ …
