It's been a long year for the Denver underground scene. Especially, with such a huge decline in the available amount of fresh content. Certainly, many bassheads in the community are feeling the effects of a short supply of new vibes to get down to. Not to mention, a limited selection of live events to feed their bass fixes with, as well. More than anything, the disastrous beginning to the decade is absolutely affecting the artists in the scene. Therefore, it's so refreshing to see our creators continuing to do their thing, bringing us fresh beats and finding ways to keep their own respective livelihoods afloat. In particular, Xeela is showing us the blueprint for staying viable during these unforgiving times and she gives us a fire new dnb mix to go along with it.
If you pay any attention to the Denver underground bass music scene, you already know Xeela continues to make a name for herself. Since last checking in with her, we see that it's clear she has no intention of slowing down. Surely, she's making that poignantly clear with the launch of her OnlyFans page - The Barefoot Basoonist. She's dead serious about her musical career! With a tagline like this: "Wanna see me squak on my bassoon? I know you're at least a little bit curious..." you know you want to tune in.
That's great news for heads in the bass capital. Xeela undoubtedly delivers some of the freshest mixes that our deep drum & bass scene has to offer. With this most recent offering, she exposes the true depth of the energy she brings to her music. Peep the full stream via her YouTube page below.
Xeela Takes Us On A Journey Into Bass
Without question, she takes us on musical journey, dancing all over the genre with an eclectic selection of bass heavy bangers and burners. First of all, she starts out the mix with her more signature style as she opens up the mix with some liquid dubs to set the vibe. It wouldn't be a Xeela mix if it didn't have that jungle feel to it. Moreover, it wouldn't be Xeela set without an injection of her bubbly and vivacious personality. Since she decided to drop the mix via livestream, we definitely get a proper dose of her lively energy and infectious smile throughout the set.
Beyond this, her track selection is on point from start to finish and takes us on a certifiable journey into bass. In illustration of her depth, she sprinkles in some of the softer, more uplifting vocal-jungle energy along with some brand new heavies, perfect for making those speakers thump. All over the mix, she drops in some lofty beats, with heavy, whirring synths. More often then not, each track is rinsed-out, over some dark samples and vocals. Seemingly, this is a nod to the season. As we quickly approach Halloween, everyone wants to hear those vocals and basslines with the ghastly undertones that haunt us on the dancefloor. On the other hand, Xeela takes time to sneak in some of those tracks that are heavy on instrumentation, giving us that classical and jazz feel one might expect from a musician with a background in classical training.
Overall, this new mix is around 60 minutes of straight heat that we've all come to love and expect from underground giants like Xeela. Of course, this is one of the major reasons why she's become a fixture in the Denver bass music scene, and a common name on fliers for various events throughout the bass capital. If you haven't yet, make sure you hop on the bandwagon and tune your ears to the sounds that Xeela delivers. Above all, please show your support for her as she embarks on her newest endeavors. If you love what she does and support her artistry, it's vitally important. After a year like 2020, we can't afford to lose out on any more outlets for beautiful music. Indeed, beautiful music, is exactly what Xeela is all about.
