Big up fam’
I’m finally back from my desert hiatus, feeling realigned and fuming with more motivation towards positivity than I’ve ever felt prior in my life.
I’ve got a release that played a huge role in my desert experience as I was constantly blaring it throughout the week, swaying my body through the dust storms and feeling as if I was roaming a completely different planet. The vocal and production don – LX One – comes correct with another dose of his signature swinging grooves and subtlety twisted mid-frequencies. Marking his third return to N-Type’s Wheal & Deal label, following ‘You/Give It Up’ and ‘Losing Control/On My Own’ dropped in 2011 and 2012, respectively, both ‘Scary People’ and ‘Why’ exhibit LX’s affliction for halfstep beat construction and spaciously impactful sub-bass presence. The A-side is a strict roller with the kick energy and heavily modulated bassline creating an aesthetic similar to what I imagine evading a gang of goons through an underground tunnel would produce. Maybe? ‘Why’ takes on a more percussive character with the generous application of subtle drum and atmosphere tracks, providing perpetual movement in the groove.
There is also a massive treat for the listeners that buy through the Wheal & Deal Surus store, as ‘You VIP’ has been included as a digital exclusive to all purchases made through Surus. ‘You’ was one of my favorite tracks from 2011, so to have the VIP in my possession is a dope feeling, and I’m sure many of you will feel the same 🙂
The release dropped today and is available for purchase through all major record retailers, both vinyl and digital. I’ve provided some links below as well as a preview to the release. Hope you enjoy!
Release Date: September 9th 2013
I’ll catch you next time! One love.
