XXYYXX at BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Young upstart producer XXYYXX will be touring this summer, and as discussed, that tour brings him to NYC for two shows this week. The first happens on Friday (7/12) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Chrome Sparks (live), Fortune Howl, and DJ True Panther Sounds. That show is totally sold out, but if you weren't able to get tickets, we're giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.
The next day, XXYYXX will head to Long Island City for this week's Warm Up at MoMA PS1 (7/13) with MK, Ryan Hemsworth,
Bondax, Gobby, and James K, making for a great all around bill. Tickets for this Saturday's Warm Up are still available.
UPDATE: Pete Swanson replaced Bondax on the lineup.
If you want to keep the fun going all the way to 4 AM on Saturday after Warm Up, head to Tribeca Grand Hotel, where Ryan Hemsworth and a few others will be DJing all night (tickets). Flyer below.
XXYYXX made the mix for this week's Warm Up, and it includes tracks by Ellen Allien, Floating Points, Holly Herndon, Lapalux, Thundercat, Janet Jackson ft. Nelly, and more, in addition to a new XXYYXX song. You can stream that mix and check out the full tracklist, via FADER, below.
XXYYXX was also just added as the opener to many dates on the previously discussed CHVRCHES tour, including the NYC show on September 22 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show are still available. After the run with CHVRCHES ends, XXYYXX will head to Austin for the just-announced Fun Fun Fun Fest. All of his tour dates are listed below.
Also in XXYYXX's mix is a new track from his Relief in Abstract labelmate/fellow Orlando resident Fortune Howl (who also opens the MHOW show). The track, titled "Interzone Export," is off of his upcoming new album, Earthbound, which is due out on July 30 via Relief in Abstract. Unlike XXYYXX, who makes future garage dancefloor bangers, Fortune Howl focuses more on songwriting and this new track sees his post-Panda Bear vocals awash in glitchy folktronica and psychedelia. We've got the MP3 downloadable above, or you can also stream it below.
