After taking the Australian electronic music scene by storm with a sold-out nation wide tour earlier this year, Astral People are extremely excited to present the Laneway Festival Sydney sideshow for Florida’s harmonic young gun XXYYXX (joined by very special guest Wave Racer), riding a wave of global acclaim for his romantic take on electronic futurism.
Exploring cross sections of R&B, modern Hip-Hop and the brighter side of low-end UK sounds, XXYYXX – real name Marcel Everett – has become an online sensation thanks to the video for ‘About You’ – reaching over 12 million hits on YouTube alone. His material released exclusively on Relief in Abstract records, has since received acclaim from the likes of Vice Magazine, XLR8R and a cohort of the worlds leading music watchdogs, drawing comparisons to J Dilla, James Blake and, in the case of Noisey, a “Web 2.0 version of Barry White”.
Bringing his intelligent brand of modern sounds to Sydney once again this February, XXYYXX provides a completely unique take on modern music that is unaided by the perils of age. Experience this one-off opportunity to see one of the rising stars of modern electronic music.
