DOWNLOAD: xxxy - "Think Twice" (MP3)
xxxy (aka Rupert Taylor) has a few European dates scheduled this month, and he just announced a NYC show which will happen on March 8 at Glasslands with fellow UK producer Slugabed. Tickets are on sale now for what appears to be his only currently announced North American date at the moment.
xxxy has been planning the release of an EP on Well Rounded Records. There's not too much info on the EP at this point but xxxy put out two tracks towards the end of last year that appear to be on it. "Everything," which he cut from a mix and threw up on his soundcloud, is filled with rolling beats and cut up vocals, similar to his 2011 single. Mixmag also posted a breakbeat driven cut a few months back called "Think Twice." Stream both tracks below and download the latter above.
We recently discussed a couple similar electronic shows also taking place at Glasslands, one of which was Shigeto who played the venue on Friday night and since tweeted, "Goodness. Gracious. Thank you all who came to glasslands tonight. It just gets better every time. So grateful." C-HU$TLE wrote that "SHIGETO had glasslands crackin' like a foolio tonight. SICK show." What did you think? Shigeto plays again in Princeton tomorrow (1/17) with Madlib who plays Brooklyn one day later.
