Astral People are extremely excited to present the first ever Sydney appearance from Florida’s harmonic young gun XXYYXX, 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 6 million hits on YouTube alone. His material, released exclusive 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 for the first ever time this March, 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.
