Nehuen is an Argentinian born but Barcelona based artist who is notorious for his abrasive dance floor workouts on I Love Acid, BNR Trax and the Classicworks label he co-owns with Cardopusher. Nehuen’s Psyops kicks off with the excellent title track, which contorts acid and electro into a writhing monster filled with dark energy. The visceral ‘Toxic’ is built on slapping hits and spangled basslines that will tie you in knots as the bumping drums drive things forward. The late-night menace continues on ‘Bailar’, with tight synth arps layered up in robotic forms over clunky drums that are industrial and futuristic in equal measure. Last but not least, the eerie ‘Desire’ strikes a more twisted note with double kicks juddering beneath echoing hits. It’s pure, filthy, brilliant body music.
First record of the “Raval Rave Breakers” compilation. This VVAA contains 5 tracks of electro with artists like Boris Divider, the remix of the American Patricia to the Argentinean Nehuen, or the flagship artist of M.U.S.A, RNXRX delivers a psychedelic jam, an industrial acid track as catchy as it can be. Heroine From The North sounds a bit like when New Beat became faster and more agressive, being mixed with styles like EBM and trance.
COS_MOS welcome Argentinian Nehuen for their next EP. The Barcelona based artist makes uncompromising dance floor tracks and co-runs the Classicworks label with Cardopusher. This time out he offers four more fierce cuts that cannot fail to get the attention of the club.
Making his debut on ‘I Love Acid’ is Argentinian-born, Barcelona resident Nehuen. Best known for co-running the Classicworks imprint with Cardopusher, the pair are also labelmates on Boys Noize, and have a similar approach of raw, machine funk – finding the sweet spot between acid, jacking techno and EBM. Heavy duty stuff for dark and sweaty dancefloors.

CWS (pronounced ”Classicworks”) is the new brainchild of Cardopusher and Nehuen, and their debut release for Barcelona imprint Struments Records presenting their first explosive statement as a formulated duo. ”Untitled EP” sees them experiment with new forms of production and creation. These four tracks of raw, analogue fetishized techno draw you out of this world and into an acid drenched bunker in outer space, with rhythms and synthesis drawn exclusively from analog gear. The A side showcases two very blunted electronic jams – beginning with the overdriven synth and drum layers of ”Untitled 01”, and rounding off with the tape saturated, funky yet introspective electro jam of ”I”. The B Side sees things set off into hypergear; ‘Untitled 02’ ignites the dancefloor with its relentless kick and hard, acid-inspired bassline. The EP is topped off beautifully with a remix by Rephlex Records electro superhero and Breakin Records boss DMX Krew, flipping the forward drive of ‘Untitled02’ into a staccato old skool electro breakdance, drenched in sinister pads and block-rattling orchestra stabs. An absolute essential for the DJ crates worldwide.
