The last time we heard from Alexander Hislop (a.k.a. Lixo), the London-based producer offered up a full-bodied piece of choppy club music. On “Splurger,” Hislop again displays an affinity for sharp-edged elements and truncated sample splices, but this time utilizing those elements within a more tender framework. With soft, glitchy melodies and sweeping chords somewhat reminiscent of Dntel’s early productions, “Splurger” still keeps its rhythms rooted in UK club sphere, with booming kicks and a light skip pushing the track forward throughout its four-minute run. No word yet on when Hislop (who also heads up the GETME!) label may drop his debut EP as Lixo, but in the meantime, “Splurger” should do a fine job of holding us over.
