Cubenx "First Wave Front"
With a production career stretching back to 2007, it seems only natural for the Mexican-born, now Berlin-based producer Cubenx (a.k.a. César Urbina) to stick with the multi-national InFiné outpost for the release of his upcoming Mercurial EP. Before the record officially drops on May 26, Urbina has passed along "First Wave Front," a four-to-the-floor techno cut that lurches forward with thumping low-end and a growling bassline. As the tune evolves, crisp claps, airy hats, hand-slapped drums, and moody synth pads elevate Urbina's production as rolling percussion picks up the pace.
