Alex Hislop (a.k.a. Lixo), founder of London party collective GETME!, released his latest single, "Writer's Block"—which also features the vocal stylings of grime MC and 1-800-Dinosaurs singee Trim—back at the end of last month. The single landed on the label arm of GETME!, following up his 2015 Gloomer EP.
On "Writer's Block," Lixo's dreamy production and eerie soundscapes provide the perfect off-kilter framework for Trim's notoriously off-beat rhymes. Heavy bass underpins the track, with Trim's vocal work running wild on top alongside skittering percussion.
Not part of the official release, Rome-based producer Lorenzo BITW's house refix is being offered as today's XLR8R download. The remix is a more upbeat affair, it's four-by-four tropical-infused beats provided a lighter touch than the deep original.
