XO is a 20 year old production prodigy, an electronic wunderkind whose imagination is only matched by his potential.
Grinding machine funk meets effervescent pop, the producer is barely out of his teens yet has already stamped out a phenomenally distinct identity.
New cut 'Night Time Solace' is part of a double A-side release, due shortly on his own He Loves You Not Recordings label.
It's a crisp, succinct summation of XO's charm - dig those squelching synths, the rattling percussion and the offbeat use of colour.
Akin to those early Ben Khan recordings, Happa or even elements of NZCA Lines, XO isn't someone you should ignore.
