Red Axes

Produced in Tel Aviv this year 2010 by Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi, Crimson Axes are an eclectic Israeli dance duo whose monitors range between dubby left-field home workouts to brooding slashes inspired by industrial and brand-new wave. Their music often mix dusty, twangy guitar riffs with simmering disco-inspired drum-machine rhythms, aswell as the duo’s personal shadowy vocals. The duo possess a sinister love of life — they once produced a bootleg disco edit of Nick Cave’s “Crimson Right Hands” — but despite some tinges of darkness, their songs generally experience easygoing and good-spirited instead of really menacing. Previously users of post-punk music group Red Cotton, both producers started some celebrations in Tel Aviv known as Break It! before liberating the first Crimson Axes EPs this year 2010. The digital EP Tour de Chile made an appearance on French label I’m a Cliché in 2012, accompanied by “Caminho de Dreyfus” — offering experienced Brazilian vocalist Abrão — on Correspondant in 2012. Crimson Axes’ debut full-length, Ballad from the Snow, made an appearance on I’m a Cliché in 2014. The vocal- and guitar-heavy recording included extra collaborations with Abrão and a cover of Bauhaus’ traditional “Bela Lugosi’s Deceased.” Following a recording, the duo released extra singles and EPs on a number of dance brands including Crosstown Rebels, Hivern Discs, and Long term Holiday. In 2016, Dark Entries released an EP from the duo’s remixes of tunes by Greek digital pioneer Lena Platonos.
