Following on from Funkystepz’s brooding re-rub, XXYYXX is the next producer to take on Usher’s stellar ‘Climax’.

At 16, XXYYXX is wet around the ears, but his music belies a sophistication beyond his modest years. The Floridian appears to dodge the sunshine: his beats are delicate, mothballed constructions in line with Mount Kimbie, Ifan Dafydd et al. His take on ‘Climax’ yokes the track to a crunchy two-step beat. Glockenspiels twinkle, bass tones growl. There are a few clunky moments, but its an effective revision by a producer with oodles of promise. A stream of the track, spotted by The Fader, is available to download and play here.
