Kamixlo – Demonico EP (CDS 002)
Kamixlo lands on PAN and Visionist’s newly relaunched imprint Codes with his debut EP, ‘Demonico.’ A Brixton- based producer with Chilean blood, Kamixlo is a key member of South London’s roaming Endless party, now being singled out as an incubator for up-and-coming talent. Following an appearance on collaborator Blaze Kidd’s ‘Exclusivo’ mixtape, ‘Demonico’ is a stark, raw, and militant opening statement.
From the satanic drones of opener “Otra Noche,” Kamixlo’s club-forward approach combines Latin influences of reggaeton and bachata with punishing crunch and spat percussion. Brash, anthemic, and primed for club play, this year has brought “Paleta” into heavy rotation in London’s underground scene. “Splxcity” sweeps distortion’s outer bounds, and in “Lariat,” hints of melody provide brief cover from a hailstorm of ballistic vocals before the whole track dissolves into oil.
Having just delivered his inaugural LP ‘Safe’ on PAN, Visionist re-grids “Lariat” with signature cut-and-paste techniques and glacial synths.
The EP is mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy, and features artwork by PWR Studio & Bill Kouligas with additional art by Daniel Swan.
