Prince Edward Island’s LXVNDR releases debut album on Black Buffalo Records
In the rapidly evolving sound of new Urban Music, there are many examples of isolation breeding creativity. LXVNDR & Moves R.A.W (Real Always Wins) is an unbridled exercise in harnessing and delivering an inarguably unique product available on cassette, 7” Vinyl & Compact Disc over at Black Buffalo Records.
LXVNDR, 25, was raised in Summerside, P.E.I – a city with a small population of roughly 15,000. Prince Edward Island has never been known as a proven breeding ground for “Hip-Hop Culture”, but LXVNDR has managed to accumulate her experiences growing up in a small town and manifest an artistic identity that shows unlimited potential. Along with a small set of younger, up-and-coming artists, Prince Edward Island is truly cultivating its own brand of urban music.
“Being a younger, emerging artist released on tangible platforms such as CD, cassette and 45 feels amazing! Everyone does the streaming and looks to the internet but I see a true beauty in having my first release available for purchase by hand”, – says LXVNDR.
Edgy and unique, LXVNDR has felt connected to the arts since a very young age and started writing her first raps at the age of 15. Just ten years later, LXVNDR continues to find inspiration in her own growing appreciation of the existential, her own self-identity and how those contribute to her artistic output.
R.A.W is a collaboration with a long-celebrated contributor to the North American Hip-Hop scene, DJ Moves. As Producer/DJ for the early Nova Scotian Hip-Hop group Hip Club Groove, DJ Moves has worked alongside artists across the globe, toured internationally, and keeps his RIAA plaques on display in his basement – the renowned and nomadic studio known in Canadian Hip-Hop Lore as “The Halfway House”.
Between DJ Moves production experience and the youthful vigor and drive of LXVNDR – R.A.W paints a vivid picture of female empowerment. LXVNDR confidently navigates topical aspects regarding her affinity for the occult, self-awareness, sexuality, violence and racial oppression.
