As we reported last week, Barcelonan producers Cardopusher and Nehuen have joined forces to create Classicworks, a record label which will soon be inaugurated with a split EP featuring tunes by the two label heads. "Hotbox" is lifted from that six-track offering, and accurately represents the firey, sub-heavy realm that both Cardopusher and Classicworks work in. Hot-footed drum-machine rhythms and vintage horn stabs are paired with dark synth melodies across five minutes of "retro-futuristic" club music. You can also check out one of Nehuen's contributions to the first Classicworks release, "I Can Only Be Myself," after the jump.
