We premiere new music from New York natives Avision & Xander as they team up for the ‘Whatever’ EP, a project which has been five years in the making. We premiere the Breaks Mix, a vintage electro-cut that leans on funked-up snare rolls, booming 808’s and a slick vocal hook that catches the groove right from the source.
Following Victor Calderone’s relaunch of MATTER+ Recordings alongside Avision, the releases have continued to amaze, with the latest offering seeing Avision team up with fellow New Yorker Xander to piece together an exploratory project they began half a decade ago.
“Whatever” defies expectations by delving into his multifaceted understanding of captivating electronic dance genres to create three individually head-turning dancefloor cuts alongside Xander that showcase an innate wealth of creativity between the pair.
“Working with Xander has been amazing. I remember he sent me the first draft of “Whatever” about five years ago. I knew this record needed something; the vocal was super catchy, so I asked him to send me the parts. From there on, we sent projects back and forth and wrote three different cuts of the record that can be played at different parts of the night. I’m really ecstatic about all three versions and watching the reactions on the dance floor has been amazing.” – Avision.
We premiere the ‘Breaks Mix’ a murky Miami bass groove that rides through chunky two-step drums and growling synth cuts. The vocal tucks in and out of the pounding electro rhythm, making this one a DJ’s delight. The pair keep it hot and rolling while also serving up some teeth-grinding breakdowns, making it a memorable finale to a juggernaut of an EP.
