In the lead-up to his much hyped St Jerome’s Laneway Festival appearances and sideshows beginning next weekend, 18-year-old production whizz-kid XXYYXX has released a Laneway 2014 mix.
Here the Florida native a.k.a. Marcel Everett brings more of the incredibly fresh style that’s been met with much enthusiasm. The mix makes use of a stack of samples, from rolling drum tracks and hazy beats to at one point something of the bossa nova variety, and features varying pace that flows freely throughout.
At 46 minutes, the mix is full of the perfect sounds to get you pumped for one of his sets if you’re lucky enough to be seeing him, or to console you if you aren’t. Take a listen below.
