Very little is known about xx72xx, save for a brief description of his music across various social media platforms. With a personality more guarded than those who are part of a witness protection program, appreciation is already showing from listeners eager for more bass in their lives. The Climax E.P. is sure to please in that regard, featuring four songs of twisted dance fare from the innermost sanctum of the nearest subwoofer. It’s a trip that lasts just under 15 minutes, but will take you through the sonically sweet and sadistic all at once.


“Imagining” kicks things off with demented dancehall rhythms assisted by light synthesizer melodies that happily skip down a twisted path of metal scrapes and percussion snaps. Ominous warbling rises to the surface as the beat morphs into hip-hop mode, snare pads cracking in the wind with bullwhip ferocity. A brief break in the action produces a rhythm-free segment rife with voices and blood-curdling growls over eerie chords before the dancehall break kicks in again. “Movement” picks up the tempo with a house thump dragged through static and malevolent gusts of speaker-rupturing frequencies. A low-end melody bounces underneath samples of cinematic strings, building the tension as the locked groove chugs forward.


The inviting sonic pulses that open “Breathing” are merely a cover for far more sinister sounds ahead. The beat drops without warning, quickly eclipsed by downright ugly, jagged synth lines that threaten to suffocate the other song elements. As upright bass slaps attempt to restore some calm, the unintelligible utterances of a high-pitched voice (sounding like a chipmunk in a straitjacket) along with intense orchestral stabs reaffirms that serenity won’t arrive anytime soon. “Climax” closes out the release on a dark dubstep note, marrying earthquake rumbles with maniacal laughter and vocal slivers of orgasmic ecstasy. Stadium-sized keyboard riffs force their way to the front of the selection while elastic bass lines stretch and mutate throughout the track.


For a debut release, xx72xx has put together an impressive selection of tunes full of experimental touches and slight nods to industrial’s dystopian atmosphere, all while staying in step with the changing tides of bass-centered dance music. The songs featured on Climax will keep the bass junkies on the dance floor, having no qualms with surrendering their bodies as slaves to the rhythm.
