XT is a solo emcee originally from Adelaide, now based on the Gold Coast. A poet from a young age, rap music caught his attention in 2001 and he has been rhyming over beats ever since. In early 2012, X finally stepped out of his bedroom to release his debut record ‘The introduction EP.’
In 2013, XT released his second record ‘The Evolution EP.’ which launched him into radio rotation. X has since released follow up’s including The Definition EP and The MiXTape. We now see XT release his debut LP titled The Art Of Dreaming. The brand new release features production from Nick Scholtz (Allrounda Productions), Tunna beats and XT himself. With a lean feature list in the forms of Crooked Kane and PFV, this is a solid debut from a strong and hard working emcee.
The Art Of Dreaming is available now from XT’s Bandcamp page here as a name your own price download.
“When I released my first record, coming from a long time bedroom rapper to now dropping a public release. I didn’t know what to expect. It went well for a nobody, I got my name out there and it opened up some opportunities. But this time its quite surreal, The Evolution EP was written over a much longer period and for the first time, I recorded in the studio with someone else sharing the project. Our very own Baden Knight (also one of Gold Coast’s Street Cred Crew.) brought the EP to a whole new level. The response and support from the public has been overwhelming already, especially with the single “All I Got”, and aside from the usual local shows and the next album, we have a few surprises in store for 2014. Not saying anything on touring.. or festivals.. but keep those words in mind!” – XT
