This months Band of the Month comes in the form of enchanting bedroom DJ and producer Lxury. The 22-year-old from west London has recently been welcoming exposure from the likes of Pitchfork, NME and The Line of Best Fit with debut tracks co-produced by Disclosure, ‘J.A.W.S’ and ‘We Do’.
Secret and modest, the artist previously known as Luxury, let’s the music do the talking with little known of his identity. His densely textured, vibrant and progressive electronica is mixed with a deep rhythmic dance borrowing elements of garage with infectious melodies.
Now signed to Disclosure’s label Method, Lxury provides a more four-to-the-floor flavour in comparison to his previous efforts ‘Faith’ and ‘Never Love’, which advocated a more ambient, exotic and euphoric electronica. Although these tracks are now unavailable, the new offerings are assertive, relentless and invigorating – receiving thousands of Soundcloud plays within a few hours of debuting.
Even without the help from his friends, Lxury’s work has anthemic dance floor credentials oozing with Mixmag as well as mainstream appeal. What’s not to like?
