Welcome to the first edition of XLR8R+. Your contribution will help XLR8R continue to support and promote emerging artists and exciting, forward-thinking music.
Selecting the producers with which to launch the XLR8R+ series was not a decision we took lightly. It was important that each artist had previously appeared on the XLR8R pages in some capacity, and we wished to prioritize diversity without sacrificing cohesion; XLR8R has long covered a wide remit of musical aesthetics and we recognized the importance of reflecting this in our selections. But perhaps most important was quality and ethos: Vril, Huxley Anne, and SIT have all established themselves as leaders in their respective sub-genres without ever conforming to meet commercial expectations.
This is just the beginning of this new initiative. As such, it’s the first piece of a bigger puzzle, one that prioritizes authenticity over the enduring demands of advertisers. No longer should it be possible to buy yourself a seat at the table.
As is the case with all the editions, XLR8R+001 is available to download as a package, featuring the three tracks in both WAV and MP3 formats, a dedicated zine, and wallpaper artwork for both desktop and phone.
We thank you for joining our independent movement.
Enjoy the music.
