Highly prolific producer Ross Tones (a.k.a. Throwing Snow) has been relentlessly honing his craft since first releasing music under his Throwing Snow moniker in 2007. While releasing music via his personal imprints, A Future Without and Left Blank, Tones most recently signed to the Fabric's label offshoot, Houndstooth, in 2014. After releasing his debut LP, Mosaic, via Houndstooth, he has continued to work with the label to release a number of EPs, his most recent of which being Xema, which is set to drop on October 9.
While Xema’s predecessors, Lumen and Glower, received a great deal of praise, it is safe to say that Xema will be regarded as the crowning glory of these three releases. Kicking off with a distant, fetching bass riff and an invigorating mirba sound, the title track blossoms into a native, uplifting, and club ready track that is bound to make an impression.
If you find yourself in Amsterdam this month, be sure to catch his performance at ADE as part of the Houndstooth Showcase on October 17. You can pre-order Xema by going here, with its title track also streaming in full below.
