pyxis set to drop all-female collab ‘The XX’ EP
Exciting new producer pyxis makes her debut on Eloisa Records with new EP ‘The XX. Dropping on 15th September, this is a truly unique piece of work.
Working incredibly hard to bring balance to the scene, both mentally and diversely, pyxis started her own label this year called Beats In Mind: Headsbass. Meticulously releasing liquid Drum & Bass designed to help us unwind and relax after the day to day grind. She actively encourages womxn to start producing their own music. The result? She’s created a four-track EP with a different female vocalist on each track called ‘The XX’.
‘The XX’ EP announces itself with the tranquil, jazz-inflicted vibes of ‘Aura’, featuring the soulful vocals of Ella Sopp. Next up, ‘Senses’ ventures into the deeper end of the Drum & Bass spectrum, accompanied by the smooth voice of Collette Warren. Then comes our premiere for today, ‘Timepeace’. This one unleashes full sonic eruption, paired with the similarly electrifying vocals of SOFi MARi. Closing things out is the soft, meditative ‘Zen’, with Sydney throwing her enchanting vocals into the mix.
A relative newcomer in the world of Drum & Bass production, pyxis burst onto the scene at the tail-end of last year with a release on the revered Goldfat Records. Since then she has put out more music on Liquid Drops, Sunny Moves and Just Noyze before landing on Eloisa. That’s not to say she hasn’t been involved in the scene for many many years. Those who follow the site regularly will have seen from previous articles that she’s worked with many top names in the industry for the last 20 years. Usually, she’s in the background, now it seems, she’s ready for a piece of the limelight herself. We think this is a great move for her. She has so much knowledge and so much to offer it was only a matter of time really.
pyxis gives us this dynamic four-track release, brimming with bold atmospherics and rich soundscapes. ‘The XX’ EP demonstrates a talented artist on her way to the top. And we will back her and help her grow, every step of the way.
