xxyyxx – TIED2U

2012 is in no danger of a shortage of bedroom producers mining looped vocal samples and generally fighting their way through the door J Dilla kicked open with his humanistic approach to electronic production. Nevertheless, Orlando beatsmith xxyyxx – a.k.a. Marcel Everett – stands out from the crowd.

On ‘TIED2U’, xxyyxx contrasts a beautifully manipulated and haunting vocal line with rugged percussion with an elegance that belies his tender 16 years. It’s no fluke, either; head over to his soundcloud for more evocative electronic cuts. With an album on the way, you can be sure Marcel Everett is one to keep an eye on this year and beyond.
