Dallas is home to many great electronic music producers. Like Chicago and Berlin, the city seems to grow exceptionally talented DJs and musicians. Alongside famous names such as Cygnus, R9, E.R.P. and Maceo Plex, Blixaboy continues to formulate groundbreaking sounds for the world to enjoy. The project by Wanz Dover sweeps across the genre like a sun-dial as each piece reveals yet more talent and ability to snugly fit into all kinds of reputable grooves. This two track release sets the tone for the next decade of Texan sound.
With sunny keyboards that shake and vibrate on vibrant axes, a neat housey rhythm pushes up the tempo. A snappy tappy drum-beat frames a sonic riff of rhythmic notes. Multiple forms neatly pin together in the sound that pokes and prods at the rhythmic flow. New notes and swirling atmosphere creep in the undergrowth while a progressive melodic tempo evolves and expands to fill the space. Digital bass rides the wave, soon becoming the driving force. Electronic drums continue to pound and tap at the eggshells, delivering a spacey and dream-laden exploration of digital sound. Minimal and adventurous, Desert Blaque transfers its forward thinking vibe across several composed programs.
Molo has a different face. A static tone and cymbal pound in unison timing to reveal the start of the music. Bass plucks discern a twisting melody across the limited scale provided. Bouncy notes sweep up the rhythms and gradually evolve into vibrant phrases. As the background notes shine and swirl like starlight the main melody maintains an almost random hopscotch through various patterns. Jumpy and rhythmic, delicately flavoured with subtle atmosphere, this last track has a funky forward facing dance energy.
