production unit xero brings Heterodox Records a brilliant LP
TIGER AND THE SLOTH. In these twelve tracks, production unit xero's unique vision shines in blissful drops
of precision. Sweeping and haunting melodies
reminiscent of early Detroit techno meet decaying rythmic structures and electromagnetic percusion. TIGER AND THE SLOTH truly evokes a peculiar intimacy not often heard in most 'IDM'.
production unit xero(p.u.x) is ramon mills as the driving creative force; programmer, producer engineer, and performer.
it all started in fall of 2001. after being in a few industrial bands in gainesville, fl, in the late 1990's, mills decided it was time to follow his own vision. taking influences from industrial, idm, and the background noise of the dieing florida rave scene, mills set out to make deep and expressive music that crosses the lines of form, genre, and reality itself.
the music of production unit xero is a spiritual environment, frequencies that transform the space and time around you into an ethereal dream scape. flowing, soulful ambient textures lead into broken, decimated rhythms and fractals of passing thoughts. music to reach the soul, captivate the mind and move the body.
over the past 5 years mills has been laying down a path for himself. as production unit xero, he has performed many live p.a's all over the southeast (fl, nc, sc, tn)along with playing clubs, coffee houses, and bars. pux was honored to play for veteran NASA astronaut richard hieb at the roper mountain science center in greenville, sc. mills also performed as a member of the darkwave industrial band the eyelash carpets at the 2006 voodoo fest in new orleans.
after self releasing 13 albums over the past 6 years 2006 has brought the first label releases for production unit xero.
the "silver and salt" ep and it's follow up full length "tiger and the sloth" were released on heterodox records. and the single "dex" was release on "hello? future" by the radical turf label. with more releases lined up for 2007! keep a look out!.
