Sy Xe has been djing and producing since 2017 and has already become a staple voice in the New York underground. Their heavy, twisted sonics are informed by a host of unwavering principles and ancestral knowledge. The following "sonic essay" is a container for the urgency these times call for - urgency to act, to build, to remember, to be mindful and to honor decay. Swelling, unintelligible vocals ride the waves of crashing dissonance into the shores of the unconscious. This piece is at once a call to action and a vacuum for the fear and doubt we face. Sy Xe's masterful layering evidences an architecture of relief, resilience and revolution.
In what capacity has sound aided in your personal regeneration and preservation? How has sound healed you?
Sound has dug through archives of ache while laughing off false impulses, a tentatively whipped toxin in the balm of gilead. Sound sirens desire and has shown me how to reset.
What place does "wellness" have in an ecosystem of social change/decay?
Wellness sustains. Decay holds us through its necessary uprooting, enzymatic rot. Decay comprises discomfort and wellness learns best inside of chasms.
What kind of ancestor would you like to be remembered as?
Do you have a battlecry?
Yes, first heard when I exited the womb.
