CD Review: Nexcyx Queen EP is Hoppin'

Immediately into the first track "Bass" Nexcyx establishes a fun, hoppin' dance track much like the Black Eyed Peas makeup. What makes Nexcyx different? With Barbados roots and fused island music into its fast-rapping, and toe-tapping track, "Bass" is a great opener for the five-track EP Queen.

"Bass" has a solid refrain, and the production is tight and entertaining through and through. Vocalist Mahalia Phillips channels a 1960s soulful songbird, and has the ability to sound modern and pop without (seemingly) the help of computers and tracking. Whereas Rhianna has a powerful voice, she tends to sound 'produced." Phillips in "Bass" is clear and quite possibly standing in the listener's living room giving it her all.

Computerized Orchestration
Track two "On The Floor" is a bit more angry, darker than "Bass." Nexcyx continues this R&B, soul, dance trend. "Floor" has a more rock sound to it. The song ends in this zippy computerized orchestration. It is still hoppin.' This song is great - and believe it or not, not the EPs best work.

Title track "Queen" brings more island-flavor to the table. The background chorus mixes in the Boy Scout song "Everywhere We Go, People Want to Know." Only, Nexcyx mixes it in such a way, that is sounds triumphantly dance and rock at the same time. The lyrics to "Queen" are intricate without being pretentious; this song is still solid pop and like the other EP tracks, could essentially be played on any Hot AC station.

"A Little Bit" (track four) reminds this listener of something from Janet Jacks's Rhythm Nation 1814 (think "Black Cat"). Phillips takes control of the song in a blistering way; still holding onto her soul and natural empathy. This is the EP's best song. It is sexy and soulful; girl angry without being bitchy.

Moving Ballad
Just when the listener gets used to the quirky but oh-so-fun pop rock sounds, track five "Take a Minute" is a moving, ballad sung with such precise heart it is heard not to feel emotional. "Take a minute, think about it, does it all makes sense?" sings Phillips. Just behind her voice is a triumphant string quartet and cascading piano. This song is joyous without being lame.

Besides Phillips, Nexcyx is a four-piece comprised of keyboardist Andre Clark, bassist Kris Clark and guitarist Russell Padmore. In its official biography, the group is described as tightly-knit. That is an under statement. Truly, with tracks like "Gossip Girl" a phenomenally entertaining piece, this EP is reasonably highly anticipated.

Highest of Marks - A++
Listeners who cannot get enough of The Fugees, Rhianna, Lauren Hill, Willow Smith, Black Eyed Peas, La Roux will want to keep tabs on Nexcyx. This listener gives Nexcyx the highest of marks - A++. Really, this EP is enjoyable and combines catchy lyrics, solid musicianship and entertaining arrangements. To answer the question "Take a Minute", it does make sense to get take the moment to listen to this band

"Bajan Buzz band Nexcyx is Mtv iggy's Artist of the week"

January 5 2011
Now now, it wasn't exactly a landslide. The Bajan R&B/pop/soul/hip hop sextet was beating J-Rockers Molice by a narrow margin all week, and as the clock started to reach midnight last night, voters' comments were getting pretty heated (dare I say a little mean?). Who would grace MTVmusic.com, and MTV Iggy's homepage all week? The genre-hopping NexCyx, or the Brit-pop jangling Molice?

In the end, NexCyx flexed their fanbase muscles the most. People came out to vote for them in droves, maybe because they're all hungry for the group's upcoming EP Queen, which promises a fine array of eclectic, tight pop beats. One of the tracks, "Gossip Girl," made it into the final rounds of a trailer contest for the American TV show Gossip Girl. Without even a debut album out, they've tasted worldwide fame -- and they're hungry for more.

Bio

Opening for Erykah Badu and Angie Stone have been the highlights of the band's young career. On both occasions Nexcyx left a crowd of almost 10,000 begging for more.
Starting as a six member group they have evolved into a tightly knit, high energy, five member band with a unique sound and style. With their blend of Pop and Hip Hop sprinkled with Rock guitar, this explosive young band never met a crowd that it couldn't rock.
