With a sound built upon stretched out vocal samples and cavernous bass, Pxlx is an exciting young producer from Christchurch, New Zealand who looks set for bigger things in 2014. Blending the stunning soundscapes of Burial with agonizingly beautiful pop melodies, this is the sound of a producer reaching his own artistic zenith. There is an incredible depth to Pxlx’s music that belies his age, and the rich vein of melancholy that runs through his songs gives them an edge many more experienced producers fail to capture.
A quick look through the comments on his Soundcloud page reveal many superlatives from fans, describing Pxlx’s songs as “symphonic” and “intricate”, and it is these qualities that make his music such a richly rewarding listening experience. Look out for Pxlx to take his uniquely haunting sound to the world in 2014, with shows over summer in New Zealand, and releases planned for early in next year, this incredibly talented producer looks set to garner the audience his music deserves.
