t was a Parisian encounter in a dark recording studio near RÃ©publique, under the mark of Saint Ambroise and in the middle of machines, synthesizers, effects emulators, where a pioneer bond was born. Hours of rush, borrowing here and there the roughest sounds for a tangible and sensorial experience, starting with abstract to cut, prune, saw, cut and cut, again and always, to find lucid melodies and blistering rhythmsâ€¦or otherwise knownâ€¦Botâ€™Ox
Botâ€™Ox â€“ â€œBlue Steelâ€
Botâ€™Ox is Julien Biffaz and Benjamin Boguet (AKA Cosmo Vitelli and one half of Tekel). In just five releases, Botâ€™Ox have cemented their place on the international scene with productions on prestigious labels such as DFA, DC recordings, Grand Central and Iâ€™m a clichÃ©.
Following up the hugely successful single â€œCrashed Cadillacâ€ comes the newest musical twist in the form of â€œBlue Steel.â€ Yeah, you can dance to it, but this is not merely a dance track. This is pure French pop with the misty voice of Anna Jean flowing over top of lofi melodies and blistering rhythms. In contrast, â€œBearded Lady Motorcycle Showâ€ is an electro dance rock stormer, perfect for crashing cars.
