Bashment SZN, the multi-genre EP curated by Lexxicon, is set to release April 7th. With a perfect mix of Bashment, Dancehall, Tropical R&B and Grime, Lexxicon touches up on his long time influences, PartyNextDoor and Swae Lee, to bring a sound that is familiar yet so distinctly him.
Lexxicon’s music style and production are heavily influenced by his Jamaican roots, as he’s mastered the skill of mixing multiple genre’s and styles with sounds found within his home and culture. Bashment SZN is the type of music you want to hear when you’re in a good mood and feeling motivated, as you won’t be able to stop yourself from jumping and dancing to the upbeat tracks. This type of feel-good energy is exactly what is needed to get through the rest of the pandemic!
The lead single from the EP, Pon di Floor, was released on February 26th – which you can listen to here. Pon di Floor is the perfect teaser for what the rest of Bashment SZN will bring, giving you a taste of the high energy, uptempo style that’ll leave you wanting more!
Whilst his EP caters to many different genres, Lexxicon believes one in particular shines out the most, as he says “I am so excited about this EP because it feels like something Beenie Man would make if he was musically reborn in my generation, anyone that loved 90’s dancehall is gonna love this EP“.”
You can have a listen to the EP for yourself on April 7th, but in the meantime make sure to follow Lexxicon on…
