Premiere: Lex & Wood – Buzzed
Lex & Wood aren’t looking to make cheap, digestible tech house. Instead, their mission is to defy the status quo and find originality in the genre they’ve been enamored with since their start. The past couple years have brought the swiftly-rising Montréalais duo to labels like Armada Subjekt, Toolroom, and beyond, with their newest landing on New Violence records.
“Buzzed” kicks off the eponymous EP, striking a clean balance between heady drum patterns, deep vocals, and occasional cymbal clangs for a fresh house tune. Minimal, yet effective, the deep grooves in this piece speak to Lex & Wood’s refined approach to making music and the philosophy that “a little goes a long way” — especially if the ingredients are good quality and arranged well. Not to mention, the classic feel of the track’s centerpiece percussion adds an authentic, throwback effect to the finished product that will satisfy longterm fans of the genre.
