Yet another unreleased remix of Till We Die, from Portuguese duo, Voxels
____________________ ♥ to Elenh Nt…
Tomas has played drums since he was 10 years old, but at some point he started buying vintage synthesizers, samplers and sequencers. He slowly started djing and producing music. Since then he has been doing a variety of electronic produced music, both alone and together with different partners (fx. Kasper Bjorke) and on various important record labels.
After some years in the electronic clubscene live music was slowly catching in on him again, and he startet Whomadewho with two fellow danes, where he plays drums and produces. In general you could say his career has been rather diverse — basically he has been doing everything from ambient techno to Japanese pop.
For Tomas Barfod the kickstart came with the ‘Tomboy’ acid / disco 12″ series on Gomma records, shortly afterwards came releases on Get Physical, Kitsune and Turbo, where ‘Samba’ and ‘I.K. Guitar’ became clubbangers. Tomas also is a much requested remixer and has done remixes of such diverse artists as Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, Gorillaz, Lopazz, Telex, Chromeo, Asia Argento just to name a few. As a dj he has played legendary clubs like Fabric (London), Panorama Bar (Berlin), Bar 25 (Berlin), Goa (Roma), Magazini Genarali (Milan), Razzmatazz (Barcelona), Lux (Portugal), Social Club (Paris).
Tomas has been involved in many different constalations. The most succesful is Whomadewho, who has released 3 albums and has been touring the whole world from New York to Sydney and been playing the most significant clubs and festivals like Sonar, Glastonbury, Melt, Roskilde and 10 days off. Whomadewho is now releasing on Kompakt.
Jatoma his other trio was founded in january 2010 and within a year they had a record contract with Kompakt and had released their debut album with exceptional reviews — from DJ Mag to The Independant. In addition to his underground prodcutions Tomas has been working with a few international pop and urban acts like Dev, Young L, CC Sheffield, T Mills etc.
The way I see it there are too kinds of people in the world: the ones who believe in unicorns and the ones who are idiots. If you like Voxels’ music you are neither of them, which automatically makes you special.
Wondering around their Magical Audio Unicorn studio you can’t help yourself but thinking we’re dealing with two leprechauns with a tendency to collect anything irrelevantly kitsch. Instead of buying a yellow convertible they waste their money on samplers, analog synthesizers and sequencers.
I guess no-one ever told them that a Ferrari get’s you laid, a Moog doesn’t. This nearly autistic hoarder behavior can only be justified by the mighty bass that make the walls tremble or the beauty of the music that floats down the speakers like no horse has ever done to Cicciolina. Hefner himself is thinking of hiring the bachelors as official knicker droppers at “the” mansion.
Steve Angello you’d better start mixing instead of clapping hands ’cause these juggernauts can actually work around the booth (or at least they hire very small pygmies to do the job for them). They fuse into some sort of four harmed beast and you’d better pay your respect and face the music ’cause there’s no way around it: the basterds have got you held in a electronical stronghold.
There certainly is more to Voxels than what meets the eye. The guys over at Top Billin and Enchufada have already seen the light. What are you waiting for? There’s no messiah coming for you…
