Red Axes is a project created by Tel-Aviv based producers and DJs Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi. The duo has been performing together since a long time, first as members of the new wave / post punk band Red Cotton. After living in Amsterdam and traveling in Europe, the guys returned to Tel-Aviv and began an underground psychedelic electronic party series called "Break It!" which brought refreshing energy into the Tel Aviv scene . In 2009, they established a new vision and concept for all of their artistic endeavors - focusing on house, disco and techno. Several Red Axes EPs came out between 2009 and 2011. At 2012 they released “Tour de Chile” EP on I’m a Cliché and another EP on the same label - “1970”, in addition to remixes and original tracks for La Belle or Clouded Vision and Days of being wild. 2013 continued with "Silver bed" Ep at I’m a Cliché and "Caminho De Dreyfus" Ep on Correspondant along side remixes for labels such as Kill the Dj and Throne of blood . Their work in editing masterpieces and live-recordings helped them push their boundaries both as DJs and as producers. more to come this year is a track for the Treasure hunting compilation at Astro lab recordings and a remix for the classic Gina x song - No GDM on Relish recordings . Playing in Tokyo and all over europe from summer 2012 is a step further towards transcontinental recognition.

Αν η “Άχρηστη Γενιά” εξέπληξε με την αμεσότητα του Ελληνικού στίχου και η “Ζούγκλα” επιβεβαίωσε τη διάθεση της μπάντας για εξέλιξη και πειραματισμό, το “Zero Hits” έρχεται αποφασισμένο να σαρώσει τα πάντα στο διάβα του και να επιβεβαιώσει οριστικά και αμετάκλητα πως εδώ έχουμε να κάνουμε με ένα σπουδαίο συγκρότημα. Από το διονυσιακό “Έλα”, τα χαρακτηριστικά πνευστά στο “Κενό” και το κολλητικό “Φυλακή” μέχρι τα αλα Stooges περάσματα της κιθάρας και του σαξόφωνου στο αυτοβιογραφικό “Βραδυνή Βάρδια” και το βγαλμένο από τα ψυχεδελικά 60s “Αδιάφορες Ματιές”, το ”Zero Hits” παρουσιάζει τους Bazooka πιο φρέσκους και δυναμικούς από ποτέ, κάνοντας τον τίτλο του δίσκου να μοιάζει τελείως ειρωνικός. Ηχογραφημένο στο Electric Highway Studio με μηχανικό ήχου τον Γιάννη Βούλγαρη και σε παραγωγή του ίδιου του συγκροτήματος, το ”Zero Hits” ακούγεται μόνο ΔΥΝΑΤΑ. Κυκλοφορεί στις 18 Ιανουαρίου σε μαύρο και γαλάζιο βινύλιο, CD και Digital album από την Inner Ear. Bazooka: Ξάνθος Παπανικολάου, Βασίλης Τζελέπης, Γιάννης Βούλγαρης, Άρης Ράμμος

After several years of hammering the west coast with the blunt scythe of street-doom, R.I.P. finally committed to tape an introductory will and testament for the rest of the world to tremble to. “In the Wind” closes the casket on the trends and exhumes the notion that doom isn’t about how slow and de-tuned you can play, but about fear, death, leather and playing as heavy as possible.
