Joining us on the Hi-Fi: XJ. Boomarm brother XJ. The man hails from just outside of Paris, France. He runs a fantastic blog, makes killer beats, mixes, and ink drawings. This episode is a deep voyage into the outer worlds of real sound and its reflection through the underground. Heres a tracklist and summary in the man’s own words… Big up XJ.

“Its subway tunnels of Paris on line 7, It’s a forbidden area but its one of those rare places to be at peace. The cycling lamp stuff, warm tunnels during winter nights. The lights station coming…Waking u up. As the sun.
Most of the selected tunes featured in this podcast have travelled already, from the speakers to our ears (referring to Guglielmo Marconi’s conception of frequencies: Marconi became convinced that sounds once generated never die, until we can no longer perceive them. The sound generated is never lost , they just become fainter as each second passes). After all, it’s like offering a backdoor to escape daily madness on our earth, and bring our attention back from convoluted mainstream and full entertainment that Huxley was describing in “Brave New World”… Music today is a very difficult thing to approach if you’ve just landed on our planet, you’ll be submerge with tons of law “quality” “music”.Lo-Fi is very much Hi-Fi to me, if we’re talking about fidelity to the Music. Thats why Dem Hunger/Wanda Group is featured more than once, thats why Steve Reich is also there with Gil Scott-Heron in a street interview i ripped online. Even if it sounds messy ‘n crispy, loud or distorted. I just hope i made it enough for transport purposes…” – XJ
