Writer's Block

A 3 track leftfield/idm single (13m 3s) — released September 23rd 2016 on GETME!

Lixo - the production alias of Alex Hislop, founder of influential London party collective, GETME! - returns to the crew's label arm with new single 'Writer's Block', featuring 1-800-Dinosaurs signee Trim.

The follow-up to 2015's 'Gloomer' EP, 'Writer's Block' sees Lixo lay the perfect foil for Trim - and his notoriously off-beat flow - to navigate through. Sections of coarse, blacked-out vocal sampling are off-set by warm, tribal bass sounds and fluttery, dreamscape melodies that tug at the more experimental, exploratory corners of London's club music landscape.

With a back catalogue already spanning 13 records - including key releases from the likes of Becoming Real, Slime and Dam Mantle - and a regular slot on NTS Live, London party-come-label GETME! have established themselves as one of the city's key bass hubs over the last 10 years. Formed by Alex Hislop (Lixo) in 2006, the brand now spans events, radio and their aforementioned label arm.

This refreshing take on electronic music has earned both Lixo and GETME! precedence in one of the world's leading cities for dance music. - Boiler Room previous release

Hislop again displays an affinity for sharp-edged elements and truncated sample splices. - XLR8R previous release

Drawing, DJing, collaborating and writing, Alex Hislop, aka Lixo, is the creator of eclectic art collective GETME!. - i-D feature

True to its title, the EP's a dank crawl through zoned-out-semi-ambient-metallic-atmopshere-heavy-dreamy-club-pop that sounds like everyone on Kompakt jamming with some of the Warp lads. - Thump previous release
