Product Review:

Longhair (2)’s Axis Mundi EP, released on MM Discos in 2022, is a stunning collection of leftfield house music that conveys a powerful sense of history and social relevance. Drawing from the rich legacy of South American electronic music, the four tracks on this EP are an invigorating blend of classic and contemporary sounds.

The opening track “Sistema Solar” is an uptempo homage to early Latin American electro, combining breakbeats and acid basslines with tribal percussion and hypnotic vocal samples. The title track “Axis Mundi” follows with a darker atmosphere; its brooding synths evoke images of ancient civilizations while its heavy breakbeat provides a modern take on classic electro-funk.

The second side opens with “Night Rider”; its driving techno groove gives way to dreamy synth textures reminiscent of vintage 70s sci-fi soundtracks. Lastly, the EP closes with “A Moment Of Peace”; here Longhair (2) expertly blends dubby chords and dubstep rhythms for an ethereal yet uplifting finale.

What makes this EP truly special is its ability to evoke both nostalgia for past eras as well as hope for the future. By drawing from both traditional Latin American styles such as cumbia and salsa alongside modern genres like house and techno, Longhair (2) has crafted something truly timeless that speaks to both our collective history as well as our shared humanity in these challenging times. This remarkable release will no doubt be remembered as one of 2021's most important electronic records.
