My Favorite Robot Records can do little wrong at the moment: whether it be their foray into album releases with Jori Hulkkonen (to be followed by Fairmont), their string of stellar singles this summer or their much hyped label showcase parties all eyes are certainly on this consistently excellent Canadian based label. Now the MFRR team look to join forces once again with Berlin based Puerto Rican producer Jonny Cruz, the man who provided the superb ‘Street Disco EP’ for the label last year.

Cruz has a history with My Favorite Robot Records that includes not only last year’s stunning EP but also a highly acclaimed collaborative release with Emerson Todd. He has also released music on labels such as Cocoon, Geno and Poker Flat records building an enviable reputation for quality electronic music.

The ‘Devil’s Hex EP’ kicks off with the original version of the title track, a deep and brooding slice of underground electronica with a dark tech edged house feel to it. Heavily effected vocal parts play up against menacing synth lines and haunting FX to create a supremely atmospheric record, quality stuff. The original is backed with a remix from Avatism & Jeremy P Caulfield who take time out from the Dumb Unit family stable to craft an ethereal and emotive remix of ‘Devil’s Hex’ that is a perfect accompaniment to the original.

The second of the original tracks see Cruz team up with Cali Lanuaze for a synth driven retro vocal workout that really hits the mark. Mid tempo bass and drum tracks provide the basis for intricately weaved dark melodies and vocals that have you locked in from the off. The original is followed with a superb remix from Crosstown Rebels artist Fur Coat who picks up the pace and moves things towards the dancefloor with a hypnotic mix with some intense top lines.
