PGR008: Hxdb & Cairo
Release Date: April 10, 2012
The second 2012 release on Party Guy Records is the massive transcontinental collaborative effort between two brilliant producers that go by the names of HxdB & Cairo. Canada’s HxdB has been on every forward-thinking label’s radar over the past 3 years. His affiliations run deep, with tracks penned down to Surefire Sound, Tectonic, Freshmore, Palms Out, Car Crash Set, Echodub, and so on. Australia’s Cairo is no amateur either, with ties to labels including Silverback Records and Gradient Audio. Fans of DFRNT, Jacques Greene, Sepalcure, and Sleepyhead are sure to enjoy this release.
The release starts off with with both HxdB and Cairo on the 808-induced track “Bassix”. The track starts off subtle and airy, like a train departing the station, and picks up into a fiery dancefloor riddim. HxdB continues our journey on FLunK, a pulsating bouncy tune. The two meet again on the third track “Once Bytten”, which is one hell of a shuffler. The release finishes with a signature Cairo sound as he beautifully plays with an acapella sample that murmurs, “I don’t want to be alone...” over melodic chords...absolutely brilliant!
