Iggor Cavalera is best known for his part as the drummer of Brazilian super-group Sepultura. Having toured heavily around the globe, winning several ’Best Drummer’ accolades and sold over 10 million records, Iggor’s incredible ability to project emotion and evoke thought through his percussive talents is being given an outlet in the form of his exciting collaboration with his DJ wife, Laima Leyton.
Iggor and Laima took MixHell from the studio to the stage, adding uplifting elements of rock into electronica and giving it all an organic, intuitive and complimentary touch. Armed with an MPC Sampler, turntables, CDJ’s, mixer, a full drum-setup and miscellaneous percussions their eclectic and energizing live stage performances are pure eye-candy with music created on the fly. MixHell do things in a big way and in doing so, are delivering a show that fully explores their vast background of musical influences – a quite engaging and unique experience.
The MixHell line up for 2013 and beyond boasts a new member in the shape of Max Blum. For a number of years now, Max has been a part of the MixHell studio setup – collaborating on beats and basslines and generally adding to the overall groove. In 2013 he steps out of the studio and on to the live stage as the new and improved LIVE shows from MixHell include Max on bass guitar.
MixHell appeared on Boysnoize Records back in 2009 with Brodinski’s Remix of their one-shot single ’Highly Explicit’, where they gained respect in the emerging scene almost overnight. But it wasn’t until last year 2011 when their first debut EP ’ANTIGALACTIC’ saw it’s light that brought them finally up to the world stage of the EDM scene. Their smash hit was nothing but a mind-blowing combination of sounds, that sees the act dive into rock, electroclash, and cyber punk, creating a space-age anthem.
