Warrego Valles: Botox

2018

About

Stylistically, the music in Botox - a debut full length for Warrego Valles - seems to draw influences from a deep underground electronic dance music, but it is based on its contemporary deconstruction, which results in a dark minimalist abstract post-genre electro and glitchy sonic landscapes. The album’s thematic undercurrents tell a story about the present times: ephemerality of all action and destruction of the planet due to climate change and slavery. A grim vision of a world ruled by psychopaths driven by the will to control, greed and domination.

Warrego Valles is the blending of two sonic psychonauts who produce exploratory electronic music with clear background in dark dancefloor aesthetics and subtle dashes of activist poetics. In 2017, they made quite a stir in the Slovene electronic music scene, within their audience, among colleagues and in the media. The members of the duo are producer Nina Hudej and musician & vocalist Nina Kodrič (NinaBelle), both established electronic music DJs, skilled producers and experienced musicians. They are also active as event managers and promoters of equal opportunities and diversity in electronic music, focused on presenting live alternative electronic acts in Ljubljana.
