Hexadecibel (aka Hxdb) is relatively new to the game, but nonetheless boasts a veteran bass sound. Helping to manage the record label Gradient Audio, the Vancouverite has been on a tear recently, releasing on labels like Freshmore, Sounds of Sumo, and B.YRSELF. His sound is a blend of UK bass house, 2step, booty tech and trap house which creates a bouncy, energetic, upbeat vibe. His newest album, Up, features two original tracks, “Up”, and “Stylish Cadaver”.  Hxdb has also added four remixes (two of each song) that are all hypnotizing bass tracks in their own rights. Two remixes that I really enjoy are the booty tech remix of “Up” by Pasteman as well as the ambient, ethereal bass house interpretation of “Stylish Cadaver” by Grenier. The whole EP is pretty killer so don’t sleep on it and purchase it from Beatport! (link below) His upcoming release on Multi Music has an intricate ravey deep house sound that is sure to land itself on several charts. Be on the lookout for this guys’ soundcloud, as he says that he has a backup of music just waiting to be released in the upcoming months. Purchase the complete EP on Beatport, or buy/listen to the tracks individually below.
