Take the stories of Adele and make them uncut & direct. Add the melodies of the Beatles. Now ask a hip hop head to make his first solo project and you have xlsrebelsx (pronounced Elz-rebellz). The “desire” EP showcases the many inspirations of the producer/writer Anthony “L’s” Cruz. With the healthy dose of classic rock embedded into the albums core sound you can’t help but hear the 80’s synch lying right in between the very somber but melodic vocals. Undertones of an eclectic hip hop album, you can here xlsrebelsx in the same playlist as Gnarls Barkley, Outkast, or the like. Here is a little more about this truly unique artist.
