A 6 track leftfield/idm ep (26m 18s) — released May 5th 2017 on GETME!

Lixo and Quays come together for their first joint EP 'Ida'. The project could have almost never happened; a fan of Quays' music, Lixo always presumed the producer to be New-York based. Upon finding out Quays actually lived just down the road in London, the GETME! head honcho invited him over to DJ at his nights, eventually leading to the pair sharing music, sketches and collaborating on 'Ida'.

Lixo and Quays meet in a gorgeous sweet spot where repurposed pop scraps permeate the ghosts of UK bass culture, tender melodies and sampled vocals pushing through dark and melancholic undercurrents. Ceremonial chanting is processed to a moody breaking point on EP opener 'I Can't'. Deconstructed garage is infused with glitch and eerie tension on 'Anxiety' and 'Infighting'. The club grinds to a halt on 'VV' and the EPs elevating highlight 'Need U', while closing track 'Fiver' captures a digital and euphoric sound destined for massive surroundings. Lixo & Quays let loose with a sound that's sparse and brimming with character and feeling.

The pair's liberal composition process and juxtaposition of personalities results in a sonic mesh that gives the EP a familiar feel, while its edges are a clear product of experimentation. 'Ida' is out May 5th on GETME!. Find Lixo every two weeks on the GETME! radio show on NTS and lock into the elusive world of Quays every month on Radar Radio.
