In the last few years, the duo known as Red Axes have carved a name for themselves as some of the most uncompromising and consistently diverse DJs-Producers. The Tel-Aviv based electronic outfit, consisting of Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi, were formed in 2010 out of the ashes of their local rock band Red Cotton. They are best known for their unique version of highly effective, modernized dance music infused with spiky guitars and industrial beats.
As producers, they’ve had releases on top labels such as Hivern, Correspondent, Multi Culti, Kill the DJ and many more. Their tracks are constantly being played by some of the biggest DJs in the world. In 2014, their first album ‘Ballad of the Ice’ was released on French label I’m A Cliche. The album shows off their wide range and eclectic style, from the Portuguese new-wave deliciousness of ‘Papa Sooma’, to the western-like clubby psychedelia of ‘The Watkins’, to their brooding dark cover of Bauhaus’ ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’.
On stage, their rock’n’roll approach to DJing and live show has made them one of the most highly sought after acts around. They’ve played Europe’s finest clubs, including Panorama Bar, Rex and Lux, as well as festivals such as Primavera.
Currently the Axes are focusing on their new, Tel Aviv-based label Garzen Records (which means “Axe” in Hebrew). The first EP, featuring an abundance of local talents and ranging from punk to disco and beyond, will soon be released.
