XXX$$$ XLII & DJ SARASA Starburst EP

XLII is a producer I first heard of through Laurent Fintoni‘s Nihon Kizuna compilation, which was the most successful post-Fukushima Japanese aid comp that generated over $10,000 on Bandcamp. He mastered the comp, and went on to put out dark futuristic bangers on UK’s Civil Music, alongside heavyweights like Om Unit.

DJ Sarasa is a highly influential Japanese DJ with her own Line App stickers and production credit for rappers like Elzhi and Raekwon.

The two of them come together as XXX$$$ for this album on label KSRCorp, full of XLII’s dark futuristic sound design and Sarasa’s party ready vibes. If you dig futuristic dancehall, this is for you, along with producers like Dubbel Dutch, Prom Nite + Falcons (riddim #1), Djemba Djemba (4AM Aidonia edit), Machine Drum and Mr. Carmack (LOLedit), who have all killed it recently on future riddims.
