We believe underground producers and labels deserve special recognition!
This week’s feature is dedicated to a mysterious techno outlet for experimental and atmospheric techno – Xosar.
American-born, Berlin based producer Xosar and her beguiling sound is a mix of unnerving atmospheres, keenly bolted onto raw techno tempos and haunting dark powers.
Already snapped up by labels like L.I.E.S., Opal Tapes and her own Gyrocyre imprint, Xosar has turned out a steady stream of well-received singles and a debut full length. Influenced by experimental sounds, horror soundtracks, black metal, lo-fi electronica and hypnotizing techno, Xosar says “my goal is to harness the energy of emotion and convey it through music to resonate within the depths of human existence, conjure emotion, and heighten consciousness levels.”
Xosar is best known for her track ‘Voodoo Castle’ which is a true homage to old school approach of music making.
Her live set is an accomplished, laptop-free one: taking in multiple drum machines, sequencer-samplers and effects, Xosar manipulates sound into dark, brooding and mysteriously ghostly shadows of techno and beyond.
Mysterious maker of sublime techno sound, Xosar prepared 9 new tunes for her 2018 album ‘The Possessor Possesses Nothing’. This LP follows two self-released LPs: Xymeria from 2017 and Holographic Matrix in 2015.
