The band will come together with DJ Olive to play the album Sexotica, their innovative revisiting of the “exotica” genre, popular in the 1950s, with a lot of grooves, rhythmical loops, and both shrilling and atmospheric solos that shall warm you up from the inside and outside!
Sexotica is Sex Mob’s homage to Martin Denny and the sound of Exotica, but don’t go in expecting a Quiet Village. Instead, it seems like the idea was to create their own very personal soundworld, much the way Denny did, but using different tools and sounds. In many ways, it’s just another step in a logical progression for Sex Mob. They’ve never been afraid of using studio tricks; previous releases were co-produced by Scotty Hard who added some of his own sonic treatments, but this time out the entire album is a full-on collaboration between the production team of Good and Evil (Danny Blume and Christian Castagno) and the band, where the music and production are practically equal players.
