Icon Collective graduate and LA based producer Xavage is an artist who has taken all of the proper paths. Emerging into the realm of hard-hitting trap and bass a few years back, he has had quite the success. Having one of the first Quality Treats contributions to Quality Goods Records release series as well as his debut EP Stay Xavage released on Circus Records. Dialing in his drum structure to keep you moving and grooving, he’s back with his latest release ‘Money In The Bank.’
The intro is quick and feels like a countdown to a race. It’s almost go time but wait for that green light. The drop gives us the go and speeds right into a contagious bounce that you can hear his signature sound shine through in. The lyrics provide a nice hype man feel and pairs perfectly with the forward-thinking sounds provided. As we move into the final drop, the beat breaks down even further and pushes a hybrid trap agenda while still leaving a hip-hop influence hidden underneath it all. ‘Money In The Bank’ is out now via Elysian Records and Xavage will be giving any fans who donate to the NAACP (and DM him proof of donation) a free copy of this track as well as an unreleased song. Listen below and check Xavage’s full statement on the release.
“In light of recent events I have been considering whether or not to postpone the release of new music. However, music to many of us is our escape, our joy, and our culture. After much thought, Elysian Records and I have decided to move forward with the release that had been planned for this Friday. As an artist, I feel my platform should be used in support of Justice for George Floyd and #BlackLivesMatter. As an active part of this moment for racial equality and justice I am attending protests, cleaning up the streets of LA, and donating to #JusticeForDavidMcAtee. I have also decided to pair this release with a $100 donation to the #BlackLivesMatter organization.” – Xavage
