The SXDNS Takeover series has it beginning with a stalwart release on the British powerhouse NEIN Records. Alex Aguayo, From Beyond, Stockholm Syndrome and Tronik Youth brought their characteristic sonorities to the compilation through four stunning originals.
Mexican superstar Alex Aguayo opens the VA with “Predictable”, a Cosmic Disco-infused masterpiece full of atmospheric arpeggios and trippy synth layers. Following comes British “everybody’s darling” producer From Beyond and his acid & menacing slow-mo cut “Vortexion”. Hailing from Australia, prolific Stockholm Syndrome brings the game to a hazier and mistier level with “Acsilado” and its proper Dark Disco aura. The takeover comes to an end with a literary contribution by the label owner himself: Tronik Youth’s “Jubjub”, like Lewis Carroll’s fictional character, is dangerous and eerie with the difference of being extremely groovy.
