Interview with Red Axes
In my opinion Red Axes have been one of the best acts in the last year or so , I find their music so exciting and I would say that they were an act I wanted to promote once I had set up the Death By Repetition website.
Red Axes is a project created by producers and DJs Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi and they have released music on great labels such as Correspondant and I’m A Cliche.
They have agreed to do an interview for Death By Repetition and here it is:
