Drum & Bass, Electro | XXYYXX – End of Time (Rework)

Posted by on November 25, 2013

XXYYXX legit kills it – this has been my theme song for a while now. Ever since I saw him live at the DNA Lounge here in San Francisco and got to meet and chat with him, I’ve had a high level of respect for this (then 17, now) 18 year old producer. This is an unofficial song but it’s got to be one of my favorites. So minimal, eerie, and bass heavy all at the same time to submerge you into the crazy world of XXYYXX‘s style – you’ll fall for it instantly.

Posted by on February 27, 2013

Let’s have a moment of clarity. We entertain more music in a day than our parents heard in a lifetime. Yesterday’s favorites are now 35 pages back and to be forever enveloped in what’s newer. Regardless of quality there’s no question that internet-based music is in excess quantity. It’s safe to say we are some ADHD music lovers, and so yea… it’s about time for H?SHTAG$. Red Bull Music Academy’s web series that chronicles many names in the game who mysteriously appear to have found more room outside the box. This fourth installment features Flying Lotus, Shlohmo, XXYYXX, and more. Check all the earlier genre-splicing episodes after the jump.


Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Hip-Hop, Indie | BYP x Franky Murdock – About You (Remix)

Posted by on November 13, 2012

BYP is back on his musical grind with this remix of the young stunna XXYYXX’s piece. Beau Young Prince hops on this trippy beat with his Dope Collective partner, Franky Murdock, who makes his first appearance on Fresh New Tracks with this post. The SoundCloud genre label of this track is probably more perfect than anything I could attempt to describe it as: Slow Wind Trippy. Beau’s verse is the highlight and the beat reminds me of something from MellowHype, and something else I can’t place. Big things are on the horizon for Beau Young Prince, everyone be on the lookout.
