Fresh Friday Mix: XOA
Now that summer has arrived in the northern hemisphere, I thought it was time to include a mix that includes warm tropical sounds full of deep grooves and analogue synths. The man for the job? British DJ and producer, Nick Tyson (aka XOA). Previously, Nick was part of Gentleman’s Dub Club and a successful jazz musician, but now he’s decided to explore electronic music with an afrobeat twist.
For XOA, the project was born from a desire to bring together the rhythms of African music and funk together, blending them with a modern production aesthetic. The project includes a mixture of both live instrumentation and programming.
For today we’re featuring the mix he produced for Flux, but if you like what you hear, you should definitely check out the XOA Soundcloud page.
