Making beats!

Here are a few words from my friends at NINETOFIVE about my sound! Axian’s music bucks many of lo-fi hip-hop’s clichés: the overuse of the same few samples, the 45-second songs, and the splicing of cartoon dialogue onto beats. His sound – while undeniably influenced by lo-fi – is built off denser, more melodic samples, punchier, more organic drums – as well as his instrumentation, involving Rhodes keys, synths, guitars or horns. This is evident on albums like Chronos and Andromeda where his inspirations from jazz and lo-fi shines through. He wouldn’t draw attention to himself though; in his words, “my work to support and grow the scene is what matters most to me. I make music as a hobby because I enjoy it and I would never compromise it for anything.”
