The Rox 'Dope EP' [Crux Records]

Got to admit I haven't been on top of our inbox for a while, juggling a number of production alias's means I have to jump between sign ins and that's just too much effort for a 'losing faith in this' blogger like myself.
Anywhore after a quick rake through there was a number of releases that stood out for me. First being this release on Crux Records by The Rox.

For me the best track is the roeVy remix, but that said the rest are all solid techno tracks.

The Rox rock! After a very successful remix of Ostblockschlampen on Crux, The Rox are back debuting their EP Dope!  A monster of an EP with 3 classy originals and 2 of the best remixes we have heard in awhile. The EP ranges from future techno to pumping electro w/ a bit of a tech house nod. The title track Dope opens the EP with obsessive percussions and chopped voices, the bassline is rough and conceived for big venues complimented by an unexpected piano filled melodic break at the end.  U, Me & Chopper is a dreamy yet smooth take on house with a tropical flare and percussive attitude. In the final track XL is sexy lil number that is all about the arpeggio. The remixes are true gems on this EP. We have the mighty American duo roeVy dropping a whipping and madly driven techno tune followed by the wonder boy Destrox with a hectic take on the original with electrified horns over a techno / electro backdrop!''

Whipping up support from the likes of Steve Aoki, Shinichi Osowa and Blatta & Inesha it surely can't be a miss.

To celebrate the release they have also released this exclusive mixtape featuring some of the best names in electro techno.
