Los Angeles house duo Bixel Boys released their EP "Bring It On" last week on Nervous Records, unleashing some nasty big-room infused tech house goodness into the growing California house scene. Many recent releases have been difficult to categorize into a specific genre, and Bixel Boys are advancing the trend of genre-bending music that keeps the listeners on their aural toes.
The two tracks on the EP are uniquely aggressive in their own ways; "Bring It On" features a repeating chopped vocal sample syncopated with a heavy big-room drum backing, whereas "CPR" is more minimal for the most part. "CPR" was my favorite track on the EP, for it bears likelihood to work by The Hacker and to Gesaffelstein's early output. Both tracks create a drowning soundscape that is an absolute pleasure to hear, especially in a live setting.
