xoXox | Space Swimming Mixtape for Porno

xoXox son Ibon Fernández y Jon Unibaso. Estos chicos de origen vasco, Zarautz y Bilbao respectivamente, se conocieron en Barcelona. Tras una estancia limitada en la ciudad condal, ambos tuvieron que volver a su tierra desde donde comenzaron diversos proyectos musicales como Caballo Bilbao o el programa de radio Pop Track en Euskadi Gaztea dirigido por Ibon. Los sonidos que crean esta pareja es una evolución clara de sus intereses musicales y sus experiencias previas con bandas, por ejemplo, Ibon ha sido batería en una serie de bandas Hardcore y proyectos Lo-fi. “Space Swimming” es un río de melancolía en forma de IDM en el cual hacen apariciones temas de un carácter pop que son manipulados de una forma experimental con la idea de trabajar las texturas y los sentimientos de los beats que presentan. Vaya, pura nouvelle cuisine.

xoXox is a duo of record collectors from Zarautz and Bilbao. Ibon Fernández and Jon Unibaso met each other in Barcelona and started to play together. Nowadays, they have another electronica side project, Caballo Bilbao, at the same time as Ibon is hosting  Pop Track, a radio show on Euskadi Gaztea. Their approach to music could be seen as an evolution from their early interests and past experiences in bands. For instance, Ibon used to play the drumms in several hardcore and lo-fi projects. ‘In Space Swimming’, they deliver a melancholic tide in the shape of IDM, in which some pop tracks show up. The idea behind this is that of working the textures and the feelings behind the beats they mixed. Fells like nouvelle cuisine.
