The legendary Trap producer, HXV (Heroes x Villains), begins his musical journey of self discovery by venturing into the unknown with his new single, “Where Do We Go From Here” — a return to form comprising of crushing basslines and heavy distortion, colliding together into a soundscape that embodies the metaphor of a supermassive black hole, sucking in listeners with it’s ethereal melodies. “Where Do We Go From Here” premiered today, Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 and is available to stream + download on most major music platforms.
“A lot of the new music I’ve been writing is going back to my roots and music I have loved since I was a kid. I noticed textures, sounds and the feeling I got from music I enjoy to listen to found in NIN, Depeche Mode, Deftones, Beach House, My Bloody Valentine, and Slowdive weren’t in anything I was doing. I started to explore new tempos, new sounds and textures and tried to incorporate that into my work. I was also faced with the challenge of writing music that will connect without vocals or a vocal hook of any kind. To make something heavy, personal, and still human without human elements. I left Where Do we Go From Here purposefully minimal, cavernous, this is the beginning of a longer process. I wanted to set out and define what HXV is and sounds like once and for all, not as a reaction to the project’s environment, but something separate from EDM, separate from traditional festival music. Something that stands on its own.” – HXV
