14/03/2021: “Xe2” by Mssingno

Mssingno makes trappy, electronic music that is faultlessly emotional. This is no different – you can really get lost in the thick synths and cavernous xylophone/glockenspiel hits.

The song is found on the Mssingno EP, released in 2013. It’s a four track EP, and every one is a banger. But this is my favourite.

Although R Kelly has since found infamy for doing bad things, it’s got to be said he made some smooth tunes. This track samples vocals from “I’m A Flirt”, which may not have aged well in terms of R Kelly’s legal trouble, but is nevertheless a wicked sample.

The pressure builds throughout the song, before releasing and adding a solid beat.
