Xhin comes back to Melbourne!
That’s right the Singapore Techno master comes back to Melbourne to shake the Liberty Social to it’s foundations, with special thanks to the lovely people from Bunker & Terra Nullius! This guy can really make and play some serious TECHNO and if you are not familiar with him you should really fucking get your shit together and get to know him. You will be a fan as soon as listen to him. Check out this set from Tresor earlier this year.
Of course if you do know him, you already know and your just as excited about seeing him as we are and you’ve probably already got your tix. If you haven’t got one yet you can get it here.
Here is a little info about this TECHNO heavyweight!
Xhin (pronounced as “sheen”) has been crafting ominous cuts of cutting-edge electronic music since 1997. Building a forte in sound design, he is best described as a sound futurist. His identical rhythmic structure and compositional techniques which incorporate elements of techno, tight sub bass, ambient and IDM delivers a hint of chaotic soundscape amidst artistry. A Singaporean by birth and residence, he independently released “Xycle”, a self-promotional ep that made the industry to stand up to take notice, in early 2003. He then followed with his debut album, “Supersonicstate” the following year.
In 2006, his talent has been discovered by a German independent record label Meerestief. With a remix that he has done for Dublin’s Five Green Circle’s track entitled Ronan’s BBQ has created a storm over Europe. Praised, supported and charted by heavy weights from the world of electronic music. Then in 2009, Xhin has found a new home. He joined Berlin’s then new techno label, Stroboscopic Artefacts to release his dark, intense and experimental side of things. From the results of his new releases for the label, he has done it again. Heavy rotation from the big boys like Speedy J, Luke Slater, Ben Klock and many more to mention.
2011 was a big year for Xhin, collaborating with Lucy to release “LX2/LX3” on CLR and before going on to release his album “Sword” on Stroboscopic Artefacts which would prove to be a defining moment in his career with the album reaching critical acclaim. In 2012 Xhin once again joined Lucy to release “LX4/LX5” before joining Belgian techno label Token to release “The Realm” E.P
This year Xhin returned to release “Dark Tiled Landscapes” on Token, a more industrial E.P it is testament to Xhin’s diversity as a producer.
