BillyD x HXOS

When you play back to back, there is a lot of letting go involved; With a long history of collecting and listening together, the collections of Billy & HXOS are intimately connected, and they blend harmoniously. Their music is minimal; sometimes descending to the depths, other times strong, other times intelligent - it all evolves out of the first mix. Let’s see where they take us this time, with another performance that truly captures the art of the back to back.
