For the recording of the XYL debut EP, "Twisted Genius", XYL enlisted to aid of studio engineer Ross Doan of Falling House productions. A number of musicians joined him in the studio including drummer Evan Rogerson, vocalist Alexandria Yates, saxaphone player Zac Stevenson and more. A varied spectrum of tracks make up this EP, from the jazzy, laid-back vibe of Another Rainy Day to the straight up aggression of XYL`s Attack. Always drawing inspiration from the artists he respects, XYL combines an old school flavor with cutting edge lyrical tactics and catchy beats.
The lyrical content of "Twisted Genius" ranges from comedic, to reflective to downright evil and sadistic. Tongue-in-cheek musings about torture and horrible murder are commonplace but so are inspirational messages and material of a more serious and political nature. Sound bizarre? It is. XYL offers no apologies for the madcap lyrics that emerge from his disturbed mind nor could he control them if he wanted to. Maybe you`ll laugh, maybe you`ll think, maybe you`ll just be straight-up offended. Regardless of the outcome, you will be touched on some level. However, be advised that listening to XYL could result in a desire to burn bibles, overthrow the government and murder your parents. You have been warned.
With the release of Twisted Genius looming XYL will continue to strive, hitting live shows with scratch master DJ Trey Funk and preparing for the recording of his first full-length LP. This MC will never back down until the world has heard his voice. Be prepared, Armageddon is nigh.
