Synthphone Remixed! 4 / Various
It is our distinct and humble pleasure to present our latest installment of the limited Synthphony REMIXed! Series. And boy, do we have a whopper for you this time, dear listener! This edition features the formidable skills of one of electronic music's rising and shining stars, XP8, for a tour de force of pounding club rhythms to entice your senses and move your feet. XP8 formed in Rome, Italy in 2000 by long-time friends and musicians Paul Toohill and Marko Resurreccion after their experimental band, Retina, had reached a creative plateau. Recruiting Marco Visconti to join and complete their new vision, XP8, (defintion: 'ex*pi*ate: To make amends or reparation for; atone; expiate one's sins by acts of penance') began work on a project which would incorporate almost every alternative genre and personal influence into one cohesive, synthetik nirvana. Idling somewhere between industrial dance, futurepop and hard EBM, it's categorically difficult to classify their unpretentiously original style.
