Returning after a year’s break from releasing music to focus solely on finishing the album; Xtrah follows up his previous EP for Cyberfunk, ‘New Perspective’, featuring the dance floor, crowd-pleaser ‘In The Shadows’ – a track that gained heavy radio, club and festival play with support globally from such artists as Noisia, DJ Hype, Rene La Vice, and many others.
Taken from his highly-anticipated debut album ‘X’, Dispossessed embodies the razor-sharp techniques Xtrah has mastered to refine his sound after a decade’s worth of craft within the drum and bass scene.
Xtrah’s development in experimental techniques has lead to recreating organic sounding instruments and classic breaks by carving elements from synthesised soundscapes. His mastery of digital processes has allowed him to create an album, that not only stands up in the digital era, but still retains the soul and feel of sampled records reinforcing his original approach to making music via sampling.
By some distance, ‘X’ is the meticulous London artist’s biggest project to date – one that has taken him almost three perfection-chasing years to complete but is now ready for release.
