Tune of the Week 02-06-10: XI - SUPER WHATEVER

XI is straight murking it on the release tip right now. With new tunes finally out on
Immerse Recordings, Formant Recordings and forthcoming on Surefire Sound, 2010 will be a big year for new XI material.

Recently on the Loetech Sub FM Radio show XI has been showing off his new tunes. I'll save the Bombaman rant for another post (because he is killing it as well!!). The tune that caught my ear and I can't get out of head this week is an odd one called SUPER WHATEVER. Check the XI My Space first track in the player. The track falls somewhere in the deeper, dark-tech , dubstep vibe. It swings and gltiches out but holds a steady beat that keeps the groove good and even happy. Speed up strings and odd guitar elements add to the atmospherics. Don't know when it will come out. This tune can be found in VIP form on Alex Incyde's new DUB WAR Podcast.

Be sure to check out a recent XI Soinic Router Mix to check the technique.
