The Up-Turn

@TheUpTurnMusic /

Orlando’s 16 year old beat maestro, XXYYXX just released a new EP based around his collaborative track with Giraffage.  In my opinion the best collaborations are when two artists with two distinct styles make music that features both of their styles in a still discernible way, while still having them blend together well. “Even Though” does this perfectly.  It starts out with XXYYXX’s signature sparse 808 drums with a chopped vocal sample, and as the track progresses smoothly welcomes Giraffage’s style of swelling melodic, arpeggiating synths into the mix.  The Even Though EP features the title track along with remixes of it by a host of other great electronic producers including Teen Daze, Slow Magic, Reid, and The One AM Radio.  Link to stream and purchase the EP via Beatport below…
