with Jim-E Stack | 8 p.m. Saturday, March 19 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thesocial.org
This is a homecoming show for internationally known DJ and producer XXYYXX, né Marcel Everett. The 20-year-old Central Florida native got his start locally with the now-dormant Relief in Abstract label, and his blend of brooding synths, chopped-and-screwed vocals and head-nodding beats found viral success thanks to the Internet. The young Everett got to tour the world, finding audiences in Europe, Japan and everywhere in between. Now living in Los Angeles, Everett returns to Orlando with a new single, “Red” – as well as remix and production work for the likes of Troye Sivan and Australian singer Vanessa Elisha – under his belt. Since this is his first Orlando show in quite a while, expect an enthusiastic crowd eager to see what new tricks Everett has learned over the last few years.
