Cubenx - On Your Own Again

Quietly classy
Cubenx - On Your Own Again
Better known for minimal techno and club bangers, the Mexican artist Cubenx has has teamed up with Chicago-based musician Alfred Nogueira to produce something altogether different for his first long-player. Inspired by the Scott Walker track of the same name it’s introspective and mature, more aligned to chillwave or shoegaze than dance anthems. For the first time he utilises ‘real’ instruments and voices to create his lush but intimate soundscapes. Written during a period of romantic turmoil and voluntary exile, it’s a journey of psychedelic induced introspection and cosmic ambience. Refinement may be required but it’s a bold and successful departure. Quietly classy.
