New xxyyxx – “Backroom #8”

xxyyxx

Orlando producer xxyyxx never appears to be satisfied with one particular sound. While just about everything Marcel Everett has released to this point is rooted in American hip hop and R&B he’s traipsed across American, British and Mainland sounds without stopping for breath. Everett’s latest one off, “Backroom #8”, is half-based (and it is oh so based) in classic garage territory and half in the complexities of Autechre and Boards of Canada. Sampling Malaysian singer Yuna’s “Lullabies”, “Backroom #8” comes off as a simple version of the contemporary R&B sampling trend at first, but quickly rises from the malaise from which it came via some brilliant sound design that allows the vocals to reverberate and a simply, hypnotic key to draw the listener in. The track has run out of free downloads, but you can still stream below.
