Gene Kelly

Release date: TBC Label: Parlophone

Gene Kelly





“Sometimes a talent that blows you away seemingly comes from absolutely nowhere.” – GRM Daily


“In the essence of comparison, recent Stateside newcomer Post Malone appears to be the most transferrable signpost, with Hex's fluid style crossing genre boundaries over soft strings and 808s.” – Complex UK



After dropping a compelling breakthrough track with ‘Limitless’Nottingham newcomer Hex shares the new track ‘Gene Kelly’ – his first release for Parlophone.


The self-produced ‘Gene Kelly’ operates in the centre-point of a party – the moment when everything slots into place, problems are forgotten and the night is a smooth slide into new pursuits with new people. “She left the club and said call me at 3, but I’m cheeky and I’ll holla at 3:20,” Hex sings, coaxing his nocturnal mission statement over a beat tinted with the sound of the UK’s urban movement and a memorable Spanish guitar motif.


The fact that ‘Limitless’ and ‘Gene Kelly’ are polar opposites in terms of atmosphere demonstrates that Hex is capable of capturing these two sides to his persona with bold, forthright depth.


“You do some tunes for partying but, to me, music is still really deep and really special,” he explains.“Whatever it is, it’s always referring to a part of my life – it’s real life experiences and things I’ve learnt.”


Born and raised in NottinghamHex taught himself Fruity Loops so that he could produce grime beats to upload, but it wasn’t until 2015 that he found the distinguished melodic sound you can hear on his debut track ‘Me, Myself and I’ and ‘Limitless’. The two tracks marked a departure from rapping and into a new, atmospheric, starkly emotional world of Hex’s own. Where other acts meander around the surface level,Hex burrows into the core of a feeling, emerging from the depths with a distinct snapshot from the roots of an emotion.
