First Listen: Xyla – ‘Usage’ (Rec Room)

Berlin collective Rec Room step out with their first label release featuring San Francisco’s Xyla.

Formed in 2013 by Kepler, DJ Uta and Sarah Farina, joined later by LUZ1E, Rec Room started out as a party and collective. Focusing on the spectrum of bass music, together Rec Room have sought to break boundaries within this space of club music and its surrouding culture. They’re now taking things one step further with their brand new label of the same name. Their first release? A various artists compilition ‘Roots, Space, Vision Vol.1’. Featuring a range of artists from across the globe including Ray Kandinski, BADSISTA and Xyla.

Based in San Francisco, Xyla is a perfect match for the Rec Room collective. Flowing through house, breakbeat and footwork her music taps into the deep, inexplicable emotions unearthed on the dancefloor. Aerated textures waltz in the dynamics of space in her tracks. Her track ‘Usage’ is a perfect example of this. Ingenious melodies swirl and swell around intricate elements that tickle our joints to move. With clear linages from electro, Xyla brings a markedly contagious, bubbling energy within her music. Check out the track in full below.

‘Roots, Space, Vision, Vol. 1’ is out 18th December via Rec Room.
