American born, Berlin based producer Xosar and her beguiling sound is a mix of unnerving atmospheres and uplifting emotions, keenly bolted onto raw techno tempos and mystical house grooves. Already snapped up by super credible labels like Rush Hour and L.I.E.S, Xosar has turned out a steady stream of well-received singles and a debut full length is already on the way. What’s more, forthcoming material may surprise some people, as it marks some thing of a stylistic shift for this tasteful techno talent.
Influenced by experimental sounds, horror soundtracks, black metal, lo-fi electronica, hypnotizing techno and Chicago house, 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.” Despite only having a few releases to her name, the American has been toying with production since her teens, and has since completed an audio engineering course.
To date, this fast rising producer has been booked to play live all over the world from Detroit to Berlin via top clubs in Moscow, New York, Sydney and Paris, as well as many many more places around the globe. Her live set is an accomplished, laptop- free one: taking in multiple drum machines, 3 Korg electribe sequencer-samplers and a few toys including a Kaos pad, Xosar manipulates sound into dark, brooding and mysteriously ghostly shadows of Chicago house and much more.
