Belgian label EXAG Records announce the arrival of their BLACK’EX split series and Backseat Mafia are honoured to provide you with the premiere.
The concept for the series is to take two artists, from two different countries, press on top vinyl and in doing so create connections between artists from around the world, building bridges between countries that otherwise may never exist. EXAG will also accompany the shows with a series of live shows.
#1 brings Dave Cocks from Italy, better known as one half of cold wave duo Throw Down Bones together with French artist Monolithe Noir who now resides in Belgium.
‘Borders’ is the first solo released by Dave Cocks and focuses on his personal journey of fleeing the centre and finding himself at the peripheral. ‘Labegum’ is the result of Antoine Pasqualini’s AKA Monolithe Noir breaking away from old habits and traditional instruments to experiment with sound whilst maintaining an ambience fans have come to know and love.
Through this series, EXAG aim to push the boundaries, disregard genre stereotypes and produce music that everyone will come to know and love.
