On-the-rise Buffalo producer YLXR dropped a video this week accompanying his latest single “BOI.” The trip hop track begins slow and dreamy, with an ambient voice and some clinking drums guiding us over reserved synths. Around the midway point YLXR switches up the feel of “BOI,” adding layers of excited, swirling sounds emblematic of something in a Sonic the Hedgehog game.
The trippy audio is appropriately partnered with an eccentric video directed and edited by MALTDiSNEY. Consisted of splices of some random 80s/90s movies, humanoid graphics and girls sticking their tongue between their fingers, “BOI” is a pretty wild, entertaining ride.
