XXYYXX: XXYYXX
Buy! - (Relief in Abstract)
Only 16 years old, this is the second album from Orlando, Florida-based electronic producer Marcel Everett (aka XXYYXX) and it's a seriously impressive set of minimalist, emotional, sample-heavy, bass-riddled beats with plenty of en vogue pitch-shifted vocals. While comparisons to James Blake and Star Slinger are relatively apt, XXYYXX's brooding, sexy beats exist in a blossoming field inhabited by contemporaries such as Shlohmo, Lapalux, and Mister Lies. 4/13/2012 - Alex
