XXYYXX

XXYYXX is Marcel Everett. Marcel works out of his bedroom creating harmonious music that provokes emotion and transmits vivid images of peace and stillness. R&B rhythms and vocal samples are staples that propel the music forward, creating open environments that feed into moments of movement. Marcel has the ability to make you feel like you’re on multiple trains moving at various speeds. His sensibilities draw on musical elements that make for great pop music in a modern, if not futuristic context. You get the feeling that if aliens dreamed up a planet made of music, that XXYYXX would be one of its keynote residents. It’s meditative and calming, yet yields, separates, and bumps. From the expanses he creates to the polar opposite of pulsating breaks, contours are rounded by evocative vocal melodies and skill.

 

With XXYYXX, space proves predominant. This is otherworldly music has more patience than the average bear, as he seems to make BPM’s oscillate and breathe. He perfectly unites everything good about the last 20 years of R&B and electronic music. With vocals reeling you in, the rest is a question of scenery. Whether the hook is sped up, slowed down, or both, this music is all about juxtaposition. Broad notes of low end bass balance the way 4-6 percussion parts pull your ear in various directions, only to convene in pockets perfectly. What’s unique about this music is how Marcel Everett has blurred history.

DJEMBA DJEMBA

Djemba Djemba is music born from a state of permanent contradiction, held together by one underlying and adaptive principle: rhythm. Experimenting with polyrhythms, 90’s FM synths, and the all-important 808 Kick, Djemba Djemba crafts a sound that is both intelligent as it is brain numbing.

 

It’s easy to detect the influence of UK Bass music currently dominating clubs, yet at the same time feel altogether new, and in stride with the response taking place in New York, Chicago, Boston, and his home in Los Angeles.

 

With releases on Mad Decent, his own imprint Rabbit Records, and Beat Team Supreme, Djemba’s music has been supported by the likes of Diplo, The Gaslamp Killer, Rusko, Baauer, Obey City, Major Lazer, Paul Devro, and BBC Radio 1. With exciting collaborations in the works with some of the biggest names in EDM, and his finger on the pulse of the latest dance music via his co-club night The Melt, Djemba Djemba certainly has a few surprises on the horizon.
