XXYYXX – Zygote [Free Download]
Marcel Everett, best known as sounded-out XXYYXX, had proven himself a master craftsman of experimental and lo-fi electronic music by an early age. The soothing ambient and minimalistic nature of the Orlando youngster’s sound is simply unmatched. “Zygote”, Marcel’s latest track to surface shifts toward the hip-hop end of the electronic spectrum holding back on the downtempo vibes one would expect. While alternating between quick grooves with rapid-fire percussion and smooth R&B beats, the song’s spotlight lies heavily on the soulful vocal sampling and spirited harmonic progressions. To give this impressive track away is a steal, but that’s just how XXYYXX rolls.
