Zambia-born, UK-based artist Joshua Mbewe, a.k.a. Laxcity, makes downtempo electronic music that draws on powerful chord progressions, textured ambience, vocal and other foley elements, to create immersive and intricate soundscapes with strong emotional resonance.
Laxcity – who's affiliated with Secret Shores, a boutique agency and label – released his eponymous EP in early 2017; his next EP, 'Introspection
,' followed shortly thereafter. He also collaborated with Sherry W
as part of the latter artist's 'Sessions' project, releasing a single, "Outside," in between his first two EPs. He would go on to team up with Sherry W once again for "Catch Me," the first single off his forthcoming EP, which is set to release in mid-2018. "Your Own Company
," a standalone single supported by Soulection, among others, was released in September.
