2015 has been an excellent year for Gerardo Cedillo aka Sebastien Vorhaus aka and his partner in crime Fabricio Gerardo Tepetitlan aka 4004 both in their solo careers, as well as with their brainchild duo project which we'll touch on a bit later. Sebastien dropped an impressive number of 3 releases on even more impressive record labels such as Dirt Crew which saw him collaborate for the first time with emerging Russian deep house sensation Ponty Mython, a feat they quickly repeated on Quintessentials a few months later and they even had a feature together on Owain Bellis' 124 Black. His third release came also as a collab, this time with his friend 4004 on rising German imprint Rough Limited and they too had a featuring together on Vicario Musique. 4004 didn't waste any time either, he dropped his first solo EP on Faces Records, had his own featuring on Quintessentials and even remixed Astro Buhloone's debut track on Astrotropical.
But it's when Gerardo and Fabricio join forces that the real magic happens. Their production and live performance project Soul Of Hex was born in the winter of 2014 and came to life via the heavily remixed single (by Vin Sol, Larry Heard and NY*AK mind you) 'Lip Reading' on their homeland's Cobra Voyage Mexico Records or CVMR for shortness sake.
But their real breakthrough came one year later and less than 3 weeks before Christmas with a stunning release on legendary Freerange Records that featured 3 original pieces and an unexpected Henry Wu remix work. Our initial intention was to do a piece on this fine release alone, but seeing that their upcoming 4-track vinyl has been already announced, we decided to to a single article showcasing their entire activity up to this moment.
So, only one month after 'The Muth' wrecked all the possible sales charts, buzz charts, DJ charts and basically dominated xmas vinyl orders, the boys are dropping yet another stupping 4-track wax offering that has them returning to the place that made them famous: Mexico's finest CVMR. 'Sleep Mistakes' is a rather unique release in that it brings the concept of an Intro back into the spotlight, it managed to bring the Beste Modus troublemaker Albert Vogt for a featuring and even secured a dub edit from master Glenn Astro himself.
If this is how the boys ended one year and immediately started the next one, I would be definitely keeping my eyes on them if I were you, they have all the ingredients of making it big, real big!
