Iggor Cavalera is best known for his part as the drummer in Brazilian super-band Sepultura. Throughout the nineties, Sepultura cemented itself into the backbone of modern Metal music and Iggor was a major factor in making this happen. His ability to project emotions and evoke thought through his percussive talents saw him accumulate a wealth of accolades including many “Best Drummer“ titles, as well as touring the globe and selling in excess of 10 million albums.
Today though, Iggor is reinvented with a new project alongside his wife Laima and a fresh outlook; and although an element of the spice that made Sepultura such an instant hit remains, the words on everybody’s lips are MixHell.
Iggor and Laima took MixHell from the studio to the stage, adding uplifting elements of rock into electronica and giving it all an organic, intuitive and complimentary touch. The best thing about the project is the fact that a lot of the influences drawn upon by the duo are some of the core foundations of the sampled dance music of the modern era. Iggor and Laima’s blend of old and new makes it a perfect fit for the dancefloor as the combination of CDJs, mixers, synthetizers, and drum pads create an extremely versatile and engaging experience.
In 2010 the duo signed with Boys Noize Records as a result of the continued and growing interest from Boys Noize himself in the project. In 2011 MixHell released their debut EP on the label, entitled “Antigalactic“ with remixes from Gui Boratto, Jokers of The Scene and Inflagranti. This has all been building to the release of MixHell’s debut studio album “SPACES”, which is due for release in April 2013.
The MixHell line up for 2013 and beyond boasts a new member in the shape of Max Blum. For a number of years now, Max has been a part of the MixHell studio setup – collaborating on beats and basslines and generally adding to the overall groove. In 2013 he steps out of the studio and on to the live stage as the new and improved LIVE shows from MixHell include Max on bass guitar.
