First Listen: NxxxxxS – ‘Speed Boat Escape ++’

Following up from last year’s album ‘Fujita Scale‘ – and a compilation of his free downloads – NxxxxxS (pronounced N five X’s) is set to release a new album project entitled ‘Synthetic Corp’ on Headcount Records.

No stranger within the Rap world counting the likes of the Flatbush Zombies as fans of his music, many are attracted to his hard-hitting, ethereal style. NxxxxxS’s music explores those vacant stretches in between Hip-Hop, Trap and R&B, and fills them with codeine-soaked soundscapes that are rich in dense cloudy texture. Vapourwave or Chillwave, as some like to describe the sound.

In the run up to the release of ‘Synthetic Corp’ we’ve got the exclusive on ‘Speed Boat Escape ++’ from the 16-track effort. Opening up with a vocal snippet of Retchy P shouting out Steve Jobs’ contribution to technological advances within the music industry, the intro eventually gives way to an irresistible melange of pulsing rhodes, skittering drums, pounding 808 bass and a cascading tinkle of the ivories – all pulled together with a syrupy, pitched down loop of the aforementioned Action Bronson collaborator. Lovely stuff.

The release date for ‘Synthetic Corp’ is TBC, the label anticipate sometime in November or December
