Default Xxyyxx

Anyone heard of him? He's one of those producers that gets tongue baths from Pitchfork every time he does anything noteworthy but in this case his praise is actually deserved. Some nice low-fi stuff drawing from quite a few styles and genres that manages to be interesting and original while still an entertaining listen.

Yup Ive been listening to xxyyxx for a minute. He's dope and probably one of my favorite producers. Have you heard of Flying Lotus? He has a similar sound but it's a little more dirty and its got more bass.

Decent. I like it but Sekklow's Mind The Step and 5 years of Hyperdub have much more variety for me and are mixed much better.

I've been listening to XXYYXX for about 2 hours straight and it keeps getting better.
Yeah, I've been drinking steadily but that doesn't matter.

Sounds: Deep and lush, like swimming in the ocean while staring up into the sky. This is beautiful and relaxing. Except for the moments you need to swim away from poisonous jellyfish, which are invigorating times.

Production: The flow is top notch and even. Everything feels balanced and floating but also exciting. This is beautiful.

Maybe tomorrow XXYYXX will bore me but I doubt it. It's like drinking Burial Lite.

This is excellent drug music. He has slow songs, faster songs, you name it. He pulls samples and layers them with a soft tone and adds his own chill sounds. It's a completely different style of music.

Someone had mentioned Flying Lotus being good earlier in this thread. I second that! Flying Lotus is genius.
