Swedish House Mafia star, Steve Angello, has constantly been on his grind with his already prominent label Size Records putting out massive hits and with his artists hitting the main stages across the globe. Now the house prodigy is on yet another venture, creating his second label installment he calls Size “X.” He had this to say about the new project,
“X, it’s a new era and it’s the ten years of SIZE. X has been something I’ve had in my head for a very long time. Creativity it gives freedom, fuel and new life”
– Steve Angello
At the end of this month, Steve will be launching his new label X, and providing yet another outlet for some of the myriad styles of music that truly inspire him. The label is kicking off with Trent Cantrelle’s two track EP he calls “Nice & Close.” This LA based DJ/producer has been around since the early 90s and has proven that he can be considered a true dance music veteran. Built around a hypnotic, rolling groove, the titular track journeys deep into the night with its collage of vocal samples and warped fx breaking down into rave-inflected chords and soaring vocals before emerging again with a renewed energy. The second track ‘Understand’ percussive layers shift around the central syncopated rhythm over a pulsing bassline to create further dance floor alchemy. There’s no question Steve Angello is looking for bigger and better, and size always matters, so make sure to stay on the look out for the breakout of this brand new label and check out a preview of the new EP from Trent Cantrelle!
