Mixing the elegance of electronica's mastermind Murcof and the minimal orientations of Fax, Cubenx is emerging as the rising figure of the fresh and exciting Mexican school. Based in Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, radio programmer and unstoppable music lover, Cesar Urbina aka Cubenx released a collection of splendid minimalist tracks for the best Mexican label Static Discos and the net labels Cyan Records, Need It before gaining Agoria's and his labelmates' attentions.
Back to early influences
After months swapping demos with Agoria and the InFiné office, Cubenx`s debut album is eventualy planned for November 2011, and named "On Your own Again". Not so surprisingly, Cesar went back to his early musical influences (post-punk, Shoegaze) instead on focusing on the dancefloor side. He also pairs up with Fredo Nogueira (L´Altra, Telefon Tel Aviv) on "Those Days"
Travelling in Europe and especially in Berlin, “Can not Throw a Stone” is a perfect keystone between the progressive arcades of the English electronic scene and the abstract aestheticism of Berlin Techno. Meanwhile, STATIC DISCOS released “The Cold Swells” a compilation of his previous tracks and remixes. Highlights : Puente, The Drift…
“Glandula” and “Repeat” supported by the likes of Michael Mayer, Dominik Eulberg, James Holden… to name just a few.
