XXXY – I Know This Can’t Be Love


I have followed Manchester-based producer xxxy since he released the instant dance floor classic “Ordinary Things” early last year. xxxy recently finished up a tour of the US, including SXSW, where he turned the entire dance floor of Barcelona into a sweaty, chaotic frenzy. On April 18, Well Rounded label will release xxxy’s latest 3-track EP called Everything. One of the tracks, “I Know This Can’t be Love” has been circulating the electronic music sphere via a stunning video that features a vase of roses in the process of dying. Around halfway through the tune, the roses catch on fire, syncing dynamically with the steady burn to heat of the track’s sexy drop. With a bass-line that makes you shiver and catchy, chipmunk like vocals, xxxy does not disappoint.
