[SONG OF THE DAY] XO - "Cherry"

One of my favorite finds from 2016, Stoke-On-Trent-based producer XO (born Sunil Heera) has resurfaced after taking a bit of a musical sabbatical following the release of his debut full-length, Those Who Wander last summer. “I had to sorta take a step back and re-evaluate what it was I wanted to do,” Heera relayed via Twitter DM earlier today. Thankfully he’s opted to come back in full force, kicking things off with a brand new track, “Cherry”, as well as an arsenal of songs he’s been stockpiling during his hiatus. XO first grabbed my attention with his James Chatburn collaboration, “Divine Disaster”, before solidifying his place as someone I’d be prepared to brag about finding first before he blew up with tracks like “No Games”, “Flames Of A Phoenix”, “Keep Pulling Me Under” and “Somethin’ About U”.

Given that XO has decided he’s here for the long haul, you have plenty of time to catch up as he preps to ramp things back up at beginning of 2019. In the meantime, keep an eye out for his name on upcoming releases from some noteworthy UK acts that he’s collaborated with recently.

What's that? You've been itching for some thump with a little pinch of wobble in your life? I gotchu fam. Enter: Staffordshire producer/songwriter XO and his first ever music video for his latest track, "Divine Disaster", which features Sydney's own James Chatburn on vocals. You may recognize the location of this video even if you're not located across the pond because it was featured in a fairly memorable scene in the film A Clockwork Orange. The single, which also includes the b-side "Night Time Solace" is now available for you to purchase (and you should because both tracks are quite delightful). 

Once you've found yourself wanting more XO in your life, be sure to check out his previous two EPs, which are equally as awesome.

Dropxlife helped produce some tracks including "Initiation on The Weeknd's Echoes of Silence which is still getting heavy play on my end, how about yours? Let's see if this offering from the XO camp will get the same attention.
