Download a Lush Ambient Production from xxxy
- Words: James Eaton
Having turned in new records for Doc Daneeka's Ten Thousand Yen imprint and Rinse earlier this year, London producer xxxy has elected to simply give his latest effort, "Clocks," away as a free download. Described on his SoundCloud as a "squashed emo jam," the concise composition presents an array of sparkling synth chords and bubbling arpeggios, which shift in and out of focus an analog bassline holds the tempo steady. "When I bought my [Roland] JX3P i started making '80s soundtrack-style tracks," the producer explains of the song, "This is the only one I still like."
xxxy's lush "Clocks" production can be streamed and downloaded via the player below.
