Finnish and refined Electro label XOX returns with its ninth release to date. The label who brought to you for the very first Blastromen and Sero, delivers with must have “Sex Mask / Rub-A-Duck” a collector 7” in a strictly limited edition.
On A side, enigmatic Suiciders makes his debut on the electronic scene with “Sex Mask”, a frantic syncopated affair characterized by groovy synth flights and metallic sororities over punishing beats. While leering at Ghetto style, this merciless tune stays true to the old-school Electro spirit and will invite to feverish dance battles on the floor. Awesome!
On the flipside, recent “I Love Acid” signature Type-303 serves up with the astonishing “Rub-A-Duck”, a robotic slaughter made of repetitive vocals and distorted 303 loops. Deep acid modulations make their way through a heavy 808 line powered with hammering kicks turning the song into an epic moment in XOX’s long history.
The way XOX has injected so much bass in such a small vinyl format sounds impressive! Obviously the label’s vision remains intact since its launch in 2002. With only nine releases in 15 years, one can argue the imprint takes its time and bets on quality rather than quantity. A philosophy in which we join 100%. Full support from Electric Kingdom!
