breaking his way onto the jazz-oriented hip-hop scene alongside DJ Suspect as
The Funk League seven years back, Hugo LX has recently started his walk down
the path of house music. With a focus on a tough, groove-led sound, Hugo has
started to make a name for himself debuting on labels such as R2 Records and
Courtesy of Balance Recordings. His tracks sound rich as they manage to envelop
further into deeper house territories as each record is released. Despite this, however, the strength and weightiness of his productions remain uncompromised,
with his kick drums consistently offering his tracks a sense of urgency as they
his way into the French underground house scene, Hugo LX has all the
ingredients to execute the heavy-duty Parisian sound; from his past being
firmly rooted in the land of hip-hop, to
his future holding true to the tough, My Love Is Underground-esque rhythms that
have been steadily released under Jeremy
Underground for the past six years or so. Aside from his productions however,
Hugo LX holds down a show on Rinse France and is a touring DJ that is only
going to see more gigs on his plate as time trails on. This is evident in his current bookings, with his next show being
in Berlin at Prince Charles on October 14 alongside
very own Giles Smith and Mr. Mendel.
Ahead of this gig, we invited Hugo LX in for Tracks Of The Day. Here, he selects four diverse records from the vaults.
