Xixa - Balance EP

Recording info

Xixa Balance EP (APA002) Abstract Places Audio Elusive
producer Xixa delivers the second Abstract Places Audio
release. Balance is a three-track EP where the co-founder
of the label packs a solid techno sound drowned in complex
and evolving atmospheres. As first label s release (Clip -
Gebre, 2016), this is not a 100% club record, we can hear
ambient and IDM influences, but A1 and B1 are perfect
tracks to keep a techno set full of rhythm and tension, and
will get its place on any DJ record bag. A1 Balance is built
around a distorted but controlled techno beat. Patiently, a
wide palette of drones and other-worldly artefacts are
growing next to carefully crafted percussive sounds. 1984
opens the B side of the 12 , with a 4 to the floor overdriven
bass drum and a reverse reverb announcing its main synth
sequence, accompanied by organic hi-hats and clap sounds.
A collection of ethereal drones and noises is also used,
giving the track a sense of cohesion and gluing its different
parts. Life Inside A Snow Ball is Xixa s personal take on
ambient. Some of the drones and artefacts from A1 are now
mixed with new quasi- harmonic emotional textures and
subtle noises emerging from a deep unknown space and
forming a complete new sonic experience. Balance EP is a
very solid second release by Abstract Places Audio that
confirms the label sound and philosophy. https://eses.
