“ANGEL 933” is the compiled works from a new wave of Afrofuturistic junglist and glitchcore artists: duo, X.NTE and Elevation. The release is a fantasy-filled take on high speed rhythms that traverse jungle breaks into footwork and beyond.
X.NTE and Elevation are emerging music producers from Atlanta – the city that made trap music, but yet they are inspired by the legacies of jungle music that has led them to connecting to a global digital music culture that spans from Tokyo to Atlanta.

Using music as a tool to help others, the idea for their project to be released on Never Normal November 9, “ANGEL 933” was born; citing an angel that is an amalgamate of artists and creatives coming together to affect social change.
With this project, the duo has put on shows that have raised money to feed homeless and less fortunate people throughout the Atlanta metro area. Within the duo, Elevation has played countless live shows throughout the east coast and Japan. X.NTE and Elevation represent a future wave where music and art move together and cultivate community care.
“ANGEL 933” comes with a complete community sensory experience: it doubles as a computer-based RPG featuring the music of the record. The game will be made available upon Bandcamp purchase of the album. The release will feature a tournament with players going against each other to determine the “ANGEL 933” world champion.
