Overwhelming experimental club tracks.
HXE's rhythms are pitched between trap and dancehall. "Shiver" and "Rozay," both of which feature in that video, are almost violent. "Shiver" has chords that strike heavy in the highs and mids, like they were meant to trigger panic on the dance floor. Artificial vocals yelp as they dodge lashing drum hits on "Worm," the EP's most hectic track, which adds drum fills to the sparse and staggered rhythms. On "Spill," voices blur and pool into indistinct syllables, layered and looped like a Todd Edwards track from hell. Every sound is processed, crushed and, sometimes, reversed, creating an intense record that feels powerful even in the context of modern club music's chaos. Where other producers might use metallic clangs and sharp edges to get their point across, HXE melt them down to make something new.
