The first part of XXX’s limited edit series. Four obscure electronic edits pressed on a 12″ plus a digital bonus track, featuring music by label friends across Europe, among which Marvin & Guy, JMII, Il Est Vilaine and SHMLSS.

Hivern Discs member JMII, leads the XXX EP with a silky smooth, cosmic house drainer. He offers a well-balanced mixture of spacious synth work and resonating claps, which wouldn’t be misplaced as the soundtrack of Stranger Things. Secondly, we’ve the Paris-based Il Est Vilaine duo, whom treat us on a little psychedelic excursion with Western guitar riffs and high-pitch frequencies.

On the flip-side, Marvin & Guy start things off with a march over to the dark side. Hypnotic, pulsing basslines, sharply thundering claps and colourful melodies to combine it all. Label heads SHMLSS, close the package with an disco-infused, acid marriage. Stretching 8 minutes, their contribution comes with surprising vocal samples and a firmly set kick-drum for good measures.


XXX666 is scheduled for release November 3rd. Pre-order at Clone, Phonica, Juno.
