Signed to Robbie Rivera’s Juicy Music, producer-DJ duo, NXNY, are DJ NoDoubt & Xavier Murillo. With a sound largely inspired by their hometown of New York City, NXNY has performed at the likes of Pacha NYC and and Analog BK. Following up their single release last week on D2L Recordings, the duo is swiftly gaining momentum with the announcement of their Day:Nite EP coming out next month on Juicy Music.
While the A side “Mundial” is a monster of a track, fusing rollicking tribal percussion with full-throttle driving techno, the B side “Clara” is a more playful, slow-burn of an underground house track, featuring hypnotizing vocal snippets, fidgety beats and murky electronic tones. With this short-player, the duo delivers a full-throttle affair that leaves the listener feeling at once disoriented and utterly intrigued.
The duo says of the release, “Our new EP is an exploratory journey influenced by Central and South American musical elements, reflects our darker and lighter styles. ‘Clara’ (light) is a bright, electric and melodic track while ‘Mundial’ (World) brings out a raw and tribal energy to the forefront.”
While this music is tough as nails, NXNY strikes a rare balance of genre-bending productions that are perfectly built for peak time use but still masterfully crafted with flecks of subtlety. The Day:Nite EP is a two-sided journey between the harder and more ambient aspects of dance music, and NXNY emerges with a sound that can truly be described as unique for their debut EP on Juicy Music.
Due to touch down in stores on August 4, the Day:Nite EP’s release will also be properly celebrated that week, when NXNY will be playing a showcase with Robbie Rivera at Analog BK on August 6 – more details are below.
