The 10 Best Emerging UK Hyperpop Artists
Occupying the same musical space as artists like Sega Bodega, Sinjin Hawke and Martyn Bootyspoon, Switzerland DJ/producer Xzavier Stone has a knack for polishing underground club sounds until they gleam.
Following a slot on Fractal Fantasy’s ‘Visceral Minds 2’ compilation in 2017, the Zurich-based artist’s 11-track debut album ‘Thirst’ arrived last year on the label – tapping into dancefloor-minded R&B, dancehall and bass-driven sounds. Lead single ‘Give Me Sum’ took slow-slung beatwork to new heights, with a pitched-down vocal that begged for club play.
Chopping up euphoric rap edits with crystalline melodies, Xzavier Stone’s Dummy Mix is what the club should sound like in 2019: a heady blend of sugar-rush melodies in the slickest of stylings.
