Tobax has been KILLING it lately. This year has been massive for Russian producer Tobax. His vicious and techy yet punchy sound has been seeing his tracks featured by some of the biggest names in Neurofunk. In his latest outing on Red Light Records, he continues the trend with two ripping selections: “Tooth Pain” & “Balanced”. My pick of the pair for this weeks review is his colab with Mizo, “Balanced”.
“Balanced” rides the fine line of heavy yet funky. Hard hitting drums and meticulous bassline work coupled with a metallic yet cavernous sound profile create an especially menacing vibe. Unique arrangement through the measures highlights the techy qualities of the tune and really makes it a compelling listen from start to finish.
If Tobax has not made it onto your radar this year may today be the day. With noticeable improvements from Ep to Ep, Tobax’s trend has been on the upswing with quality and consistency. Keep an eye on whats to come next from Tobax as well as Red Light Records as we continue through the rest of the season.
