We clench our jaws as we delve into Thomas Xavier's scorching new bass, tech house album, infused with grime influences, boasting a formidable collection of 14 tracks. Within this project, we encounter relentless house beats, dubstep surges, and menacing basslines that can quicken your pulse with their sheer intensity. Thomas Xavier has already solidified his project's guiding principle of "rediscovering our ancient past through song and dance" through his label imprint, Pharaoh Phonix.
The first of two fresh additions to the album, "Monsta," storms in with its colossal sound design and a hook influenced by hip-hop. With its electrifying womps and gritty vocals, this track is tailor-made for the apex moments on any club or festival dance floor. "Lemme See You" and "Let it Blow" seamlessly transition into trap rhythms, featuring rap verses that deliver unexpected twists and turns to ignite the dance floors. "Where'd You Go" and "Play Hard" take us on a captivating journey with infectious vocals and haunting synth melodies. The second new track in this project, "Be Like VR," launches Thomas Xavier's bass music endeavor Khuphu, delivering intense dubstep heat alongside commanding UK Grime vocals.
This marks an astonishing 11th release for him this year, released through three different labels, and the LP undoubtedly stands as his most remarkable accomplishment to date. As we anticipate more significant bookings and releases on the horizon, Thomas Xavier emerges as an artist to closely monitor as we approach the year's end.
