The UK’s Scott Xylo tries out a new style in 2014 with his space-inspired Ridley Scott.
Trying something new is one of the hardest things to do as a producer, especially in hip hop if you’ve established a certain type of style that your listeners love. Scott Xylo decided to do just that with his latest beat tape, Ridley Scott, a cosmic affair of the highest order. Elements of Flying Lotus, Asiro, KVZE and even some early 4hero (intentional or otherwise) can be heard pulsing throughout the album. From the ordered chaos of opening gambit Constellation Of Prometheus to deep vibes of [anakin], Ridley Scott is a superb body of work and if electronic ambience is your bag, you’ll have this on repeat.
