Update: Winners announced!

Killpixxie, a new comer to the scene in 2011, is the protege of the canadian based duo Beat Syndrome, who debuted last year on the label Drops by Liquid Inc with her first ever release by the name of Rural Roads, which included the the track sharing the same name. The sentiment was at the time for the label heads was that its not very often when they come across a new developing artist with such passion and drive for music and production delivering high quality and innovative music. this resulted in the immediate signing of this release and mainly due to the intricacy and innovation showcased in the track Rural Roads.

Rural Roads quickly soared the minimal charts within the first two weeks climbing all the way up to the Beatport Minimal Top 10 and sitting for the subsequent months there peaking at #4. Something that propelled both Killpixxie and Drops to the radar of some of the most respected artists of the industry.

Rural Roads is the perfect tune that describes the artists long standing affair with one of her passions, Electronic Music. Rural Road is a groovy minimal to eerie, dark techno sounds bring a twist of roof raising and melodic flavor by layering some very intricate pads and melodic sounds topped of with some beautiful and mesmerizing Vocals contributed as well by the artist herself.
