XXYYXX (Marcel Everett) is a 17 year old musician from Orlando, Florida. He is a superkid not just because he started playing music (and becoming famous for it) at the age of 15, but because he literally just picked up some instruments and learned it all from scratch and managed to create something amazing. Listening to XXYYXX I hear definite R&B influences, it reminds me of The Weeknd and of other artists like Toro y Moi.
Taking from the trends of 2011, Everett is turning Chillwave into something new and relevant. It’s exciting to see someone so young doing so well. It will be interesting to see how he grows as an artist in the industry.
