The mounting anticipation behind Sydney trailblazer Sahxl is just the beginning of AU’s rapidly approaching new gen.
When Sahxl (pronounced Sa-Hill) primed the world with his debut single ‘The Kid Freestyle’, he was marked as one to watch by fellow Sydney sensation The Kid Laroi and Beats1 personality Ebro Darden. Followed by the release of ‘Demons’, the rising star revealed a more cut-throat side to his artistry, with raspy delivery across booming Drill and Trap production. In his explosive new track ‘C4’, Saxhl takes rich vocal influence from Michael Jackson and Bryson Tiller and offers a unique thematic approach to the melodic Trap and R&B world.
The Sydney performer delivers a passionate display of smooth croons on production by frequent-Laroi collaborators Khaled Rohaim and Haan. The accomplished AU producers marry a touch of pop production with the grit of modern hip-hop, stylizing the artists’ appeal with an expansive soundscape we’re still only scratching the surface of.
“With my music, it’s always coming from a place inside of me, like my emotions, that’s why it’s always so different, it can’t stick to one genre because I can’t stick to one feeling!”
‘C4’ radiates dream-chasing and money motivated energy, a shared feeling among Sahxl and his 506 crew comprised of other young creatives including NavsRevenge and ByMello, Sahxl comments; “What 506 started as was just a bunch of kids with dreams way bigger than anyone around them could ever believe in. That’s where it kind of started,”
Garnering international co-signs and DSP playlist placements, 506’s dreams are being realised as Sahxl begins capitalising on his rare potential and the momentum of his recent releases.
“I feel like I’m evolving as a person every day so I feel like who knows, you know. All I can say is I’m excited for the world to see 506 and I’m excited for the world to see me. What you can expect is real raw emotions everyday human experiences that people go through and that’s also why I feel like I want my music to be infinite.”
