Leicester producer Scott Xylo shares afrofuturism-infused “Ariya”

Scott Xylo‘s “Ariya” features Afronaut Zu, Catherine Sera and Marcus Joseph and is out now on Black Acre.

23-year-olf producer Scott Xylo has made his debut on UK label Black Acre with a new single, “Ariya”, which combines a heady thematic and elemental mix of afrofuturism, escapism and surrealism. There’s a sweet psychedelia in “Ariya” but the best asset undoubtedly comes from its subtle modernity. It’s quite difficult to date the track without its context as it can be linked to many different eras and genres. There’s more to come from Scott Xylo, including a debut album later this summer, so stay tuned.
