DESCRIPTION

Having previously dropped two heavyweight EP’s on Freerange we now welcome Soul Of Hex to Delusions Of Grandeur for an absolute banger of a release entitled The Disco Permanente EP. Brothers Gerardo and Emanuel Cedillo were born and raised in Mexico’s notorious northern city Tijuana where, for the past decade, they have been conjuring up astral deep odysseys which draw from the raw sensuality and restraint of classic house and techno, incorporating jazzy flourishes and colourful shifts in tone, rhythm and texture. Although only in their mid-twenties, they have contributed heavily to the house and techno scene, DJing, promoting events, performing live sets and releasing underground floor fillers for labels such as Quintessentials, Secret Crunch, CVMR, Dirt Crew as well as their own Vicario imprint.

2018 saw them on hiatus whilst they attended the Berlin edition of the Redbull Music Academy. Here they immersed themselves even deeper in music, forging relationships with mentors such as Mad Mike and Marco Passarani, who would prove to be huge influences on the music to come from SOH, specifically this EP. We’re proud to present you this killer five-tracker which shows why Soul Of Hex are deserving of your full attention and helping to place Mexico firmly on the map as a country producing serious talent.

From the crunchy, high energy drive of opener Disco Permanente with its MPC-style edits and punchy stabs, through to the optimistic vibe permeating through closing track Psychic. From the Soundhack-inspired craziness of Drum Fantasy to the live, octave bassline stomp of Polygon Alpha Funk featuring Cornelius SA, this is an EP deeply rooted in the origins of house music with a diversity, authenticity and overall quality which we feel makes for a true classic that will stand the test of time.
