Lxury – Tokyo (Spotify)

“Lxury with his new single Tokyo under South Space please us with a lush layering of hats, sweet vocals from Jadu Heart and samples and minimal acid melodic line, everything arranged perfect to tickle your ear senses under a fine house groove.”


Featuring vocals from Jadu Heart and Tokyo tube samples (recorded back in 2019) turned into synths, Lxury's heady, euphoric dance music has been championed by the likes of A-Trak, Four Tet, Disclosure and Caribou for good reason. His hazy take on house is perfect for headphones and festivals alike, channelling the hands-in-the-air energy of rave history without any of the retro trappings. Lxury’s bright sounds paint a vision of ecstasy and colour with attention to every layer. Sampling Tokyo tube transport announcements and turning them into synths, or turning Japanese machines into snappy percussion, there’s no detail missed.

An already essential lynchpin to the UK’s constantly transformative club scene, Lxury’s ‘Tokyo’ single is an exceptional addition to a fast growing catalogue of quality productions from the UK producer.
