Christian Andersen has never been one for genres and his productions as XI are no exception. His production-style, while often given simple tags, deserves a more nuanced description: Chop-suey beats, combined with complex sampling techniques highlight some of XI’s strengths. However, it’s his ability to create depth and take listeners on a journey within his productions that has him at the forefront of the next wave of bass music.
With his story well underway, XI is quickly gaining a reputation for crafting bass music that maintains a respect for the past, while hinting strongly at the future of electronic music.
XI featured on Futra 001 > Futra 001: EEZIR – Lone Lifter EP with XI Remix
Although Drew Peterson is an original member of the Los Angeles SMOG crew, known for their low frequency dubstep basslines, in July of 2012 he released original techno and electronica tracks with Futra. He’s not stopping there either, a slew of remixes and originals of varying tempos will soon be rattling bass-bins, proving that he has no limits within genre boundaries.
