The incredibly talented Sephyx is on a roll this year, and shows no signs of slowing down with his new track Kingdoms Fall feat. KIIGER.
Is there any way of stopping Sephyx? We don’t think so. Xander ’t Hoen’s run through the Hardstyle ranks has been nothing short of mindboggling. His musical journey began with him playing guitar at the age of 8, which he quickly mastered and helped fuel his love of music. In the midst of all of this, Xander found out about the religion that is Hardstyle, and hasn’t stopped since.
In 2012, he began producing his own tracks, and over 2 years perfected and honed his producing skills. Sephyx’s talent was apparent to everyone, so much so that Dirty Workz signed him in 2014. Xander had the talent, the ideas and he now had the platform, and boy did he not let his chance go to waste. On May 2014 came Creation of Air, his debut EP, followed by the remaining elements. Xander quickly set himself apart for his melodic and melancholic sound built around amazing melodies and powerful vocals, which fortunately remain until today.
He has come a long way since those days, and now features anthems, remixes, festival shows at Tomorrowland, Defqon.1, Reverze, remixes and even a spectacularly beautiful album – Resolute. All this has helped Sephyx earn a place on the minds (and ears) of hardstyle fans worldwide, with his every release becoming mandatory on all hard playlists. So far in 2020, Sephyx has proven he’s at the height of his powers, but still has so much more to give, with releases like Higher, Journey, and now, Kingdoms Fall.
The track starts out with KIIGER’s beautiful vocals, processed masterfully together with the harmonious pads and chords and transitioning brilliantly to the main lead. A cinematic build-up takes to the very top of the first drop, conducted and pitched according to KIIGER’s voice, climaxing in a sudden and epic discharge of energy. The breakdown grabs guitar-like elements, and highlights KIIGER’s voice one last time before the gigantic second drop.
Another anthem for the books, proving yet again how Sephyx’s talent will take him to the very top!
