Since his 2012 anthem "Let It Go" catapulted him into the big leagues, house music champ Huxley has gone from strength to strength with a tonne of big drops on Aus Music. Now he's back to make his debut on famed UK dance label Circus Records and he's drafted in Johannesburg-based poet and spoken word artist Lazarusman who graces this heavy duty production with some inspiring and cerebral thoughts about expanding your mind and harnessing the power of the individual in the face of crises in politics, the media and society as a whole. Beneath that, Huxley's hands-in-the-air, bass-heavy instrumental thunders and shimmers in equal measure.
Speaking with Complex via email, Huxley told us: "Originally, Lazarusman recorded the vocal over another instrumental that I made in 2018, but when I recurved his vocal it totally outshone the track I had made. So I went back to the drawing board. I wanted to make something that fit the sentiment of the lyrics something powerful that will really bite the crowd in the arse. Yousef recently called it a statement record, and I couldn't have said it better myself."
Take a listen to the original version and make sure you pick up the full EP when it drops on February 7 to hear remixes from Italy's Marco Lys and Canada's Demuir.
