New and deconstructed club and technicolor trance beats from the Swedish producer.
Swedish producer Toxe’s sharp ascent through club-cursed climes has elicited high praise. In just a few years, after coming to the Academy as a participant, she’s linked up with Staycore and Halcyon Veil, presented an A/V project with the Vinyl Factory, scored KENZO’s FW 2016 prints presentation with Staycore collaborator Mechatok and worked with Acne for their SS 2019 collection. In the summer of 2018 she released her latest EP, Blinks, on the label PAN — it’s a fractal bloom of candied melodies and minor laments, set in a sweep of frenetic, rhythmic scenes. Toxe is a vibrant, buoyant mess of sound and drama, and she always finds a way to make it sound all her own. The constant metamorphosis of Toxe’s style, from her 2015 debut EP Muscle Memory to the sound palette of Blinks, shows the artist taking truly intuitive turns.
