Orlando, FL based beat producer Marcel Everett

Biography

Marcel Everett (born October 31, 1995), better known as XXYYXX, is an electronic musician and producer from Orlando, Florida signed to Relief in Abstract. He is most notable for gaining prominence within the indie music culture, despite his young age and experimental lo-fi music, which he made in his bedroom with FL Studio and software from Ableton.

Everett himself described his music as "Doing drugs on a freeway...underwater," in an interview with Relief in Abstract. His style was also likened to Clams Casino, Zomby, Burial, James Blake and The Weeknd. His musical influences include Lapalux, Star Slinger, Disclosure and Shlohmo.

A music video for his song "About You'", which has over 12 million views, was directed by Jeffrey Vash.

XXYYXX has also made remixes for artists such as Tinashe and Usher.

It was announced in January 2013 that XXYYXX would be one of the headliners of the San Francisco Noise Pop Festival in February 2013.
