Albums | MXSY Makes Statement With Trap Monster “Calentura”

Posted by on March 1, 2023

FUXWITHIT is always on the hunt for the next wave of artists taking bass music to new heights. The never-ending quest has taken the label to Dublin, Ireland with the discovery of 15-year-old production sensation MXSY. Don’t let his age or follower count fool you, MXSY is up next. A slew of incredible self-releases have been building his catalog and hype. Add in a single on the always impressive dumb collective and a remix of Gurf’s ‘Big Gurl’ and it’s clear that MXSY is gearing up to take over the electronic trap scene. With the release of ‘Calentura’ on FUXWITHIT, MXSY is about to put everyone on notice. 

“Calentura” is one of the year’s stand-out trap bangers. The opening melody and atmospherics set the tone with an alluring and addictive sound. The feverish vocal drives things forward as it’s bent and chopped over the course of the track, giving the song its namesake. The drops are devastating and riddled with bass, finding a pocket that’s true trap perfection. What makes ‘Calentura’ so exciting is the progression. Even within the drops, MXSY is constantly keeping listeners on their toes, whether it’s feaking the bass, twisting the melodies, or mixing up the percussion. “Calentura” proves MXSY should be everyone’s artists to watch list for 2023 and sets the bar for trap bangers this year.   

“My goal when creating ‘Calentura’ was to create a strange, atmospheric kind of landscape, and then switch it up completely for the drop, with a groovy beat and a weird bass sound to catch listeners off guard. I wanted listeners to always be on their toes, not knowing what is coming next. For example, they are waiting for the drop, just for it to be teased for 4 bars, then all of a sudden have it smacked in their faces!” -MXSY

Posted by on February 18, 2022

If there’s one name that knows how to keep electro house alive, it’s Record Club. Singles like “Young Make Me Feel,” and now “Switch It Up,” showcase the level of craftmanship and creativity they are able to inject into the long-lasting genre. Hard-hitting synths help place a fitting level of energy into the track, giving a big-room flair to an already exhilarating ride. The single is a solid contribution to the sub-genre as a whole and slingshots Record Club to higher planes as they continue on a success streak. If you dig what Record Club have to offer, they have more of where this has come via their Spotify.

Alex and Dan, brothers, have their mind set on bringing back a special era of electronic music culture, the days when progressive and electro house sounds dominated the mainstream of the scene. Moments like garnering support from none other than R3HAB and their original releases hitting some seriously respectable marks on the streaming side begins to describe why Record Club is being righteously validated for the musical gifts they’ve brought forth.
