Part of the Snowbombing 2017: 8,947ft above the ordinary takeover
A well-known name in the house music scene, Huxley has built up his reputation over the last 8 years. It all began with Sassanids – a collaborative EP with fellow producer and friend Ethyl – that was released in 2009. This duo went on to release the ‘Beatport Deep House 2010’ nominated Mother Tongue on Tsuba Records later that same year. Since this time, Huxley has gone on to carve out his own solo career with great success, releasing on esteemed labels such as Hypercolour, AUS Music and 20:20 vision (as well as his home label Tsuba, of course). His appeal as a DJ comes from his versatility of styles; from big basslines to stripped-back house, he is an artist who unites a variety of sounds, styles and scenes with ease. His discography is deep and diverse, featuring solo releases, collaborations and weighty remixes, and almost too many singles, EPs and albums to count.
Huxley is constantly switching up his sound, trying new things with every new project he works on. His 2013 dancefloor anthem ‘Let It Go‘ was a foray into a more commercial pop-house direction. He carried this sentiment through to his ambitious debut album Blurred, released on AUS Music in 2014, which consisted of a series of tracks with melodic vocals over driving drum-samples and catchy rhythms. Riding this creative wave, Huxley established his own record label – No Idea’s Original – in 2015, which has become an outlet for a wide range of house and techno sounds from Huxley and friends. No Idea’s Original boasts releases from established artists such as Mr. G and Bodhi, and has also developed into a party series, showcasing likeminded artists in intimate club spaces across London. In 2017, Huxley’s schedule is busy as ever, seeing the launch of his two new aliases ‘Hux’ and ‘Martinet’ – the first of which debuted on Darius Syrossian’s ‘Do Not Sleep’ (focused on more stripped back house) and the latter which debuted on Sasha’s ‘Last Night On Earth’ ( a melodic focus). Alongside this he continues to run his record label, and play at festivals and clubs around the globe, one of these festivals being Snowbombing. As one of the only festivals above 8,000ft, there’s no doubt this event is above the ordinary. With such a prolonged time at the top of his game, Huxley most certainly has a few tracks in the locker that are also are above the ordinary. Here are four of them.
