HEXED brings the 'ENERGY' with his latest EP

The Tampa native unleashes four tracks dripping with hybrid bass flavor.

Since 2019, HEXED has been on a tear with his unique blend of hip-hop and bass music, garnering support from notable artists like Zeds Dead, TVBOO and Zingara along the way.


Hailing from the bass-focused city of Tampa, Florida, this rising producer has returned with a banging, four-track EP aptly titled, ENERGY. The EP is self-released.



The title track, ENERGY, gets things cracking with a catchy verse from Atlanta-based rapper King Marino, layered over an ethereal trap beat. The track reaches its climax with a sub-heavy drop that perfectly encapsulates the balance HEXED strikes between hip-hop and bass music.


PINE-SOL, a collaboration with Detroit's own Hush, is a much heavier cut that shows off HEXED's clever sound design. The pulsing bass stabs reverberating throughout the track help push forward the heavy, triumphant theme of the EP as a whole.

"Reflecting on this project made me realize how far I’ve come as an artist, but reminds me this is only the beginning," HEXED said. "This project is a statement from me to let listeners know this is my time."

MIRAGE has an old-school feel to it that just keeps you coming back for more. This one feels like the most complete effort on the entire EP as it combines elements of trap, dubstep and hip-hop throughout.


The EP's lead single and final track, WHAT U DO, reveals a more melodic side of HEXED while still maintaining his gritty, hard-nosed approach to bass music. HEXED enlists the help of Canadian producer Kimati on this tune, which deviates from the rest of the EP with a much faster tempo and a sultry vocal sample that keeps things fresh and interesting throughout.
