Lexxicon- You Know Me (Independent): This Jamaica-born, Toronto-based, hip-hop/dancehall artist and community powerhouse continues to share music from his forthcoming album, Tropicon Islands, arriving Nov. 19.
In a press release, Lexxicon explains that recent single You Know Me “is about feeling as if no one else gets you the way that your person does. All the different ways of communicating such as physical touch, words of affirmation or even acts of service, they get you and know how to switch things up that keep you excited. It’s a feeling like no other when someone understand you emotional and physically.” A live performance visual to accompany You Know Me was filmed by videographer Mohtohsoh.
The track has more of a contemporary R&B tone than dancehall, Lexxicon's vocals have a sensual feel, and the production work of Artafacts is smooth.
Intriguing news is that Lexxicon has written a complementary novel, also entitled Tropicon Islands, to be published on Nov. 26.
Tropicon Islands, the album, follows up the two well-received EPs he released last year, Bashment Trap House and Tropical R&B, material that showcase his diverse musical influences.
A man of many talents, Lexxicon champions community work and inclusion as the Director of AfroWaveTO, a Toronto based community creating vibrant new culture.
