Knoxville transplant Sean Bowie has been making quite a name for himself as Teams. His sample-based beats began bubbling up across the blogosphere last spring, and the hype has only increased since then. Following up on last year's We Have A Room With Everything EP for AMDISCS and January's collaborative 12" with Star Slinger on Mexican Summer, Teams is readying his Dxys Xff LP for release on AMDISCS this March. With the above artwork and a name like "Whxt Txrns U Xn," you might think we're in for more of the "porn step" of earlier track "Stunts," yet the song has a relatively simple beat/gaze/glam structure. It's a channel-churning, constantly building whirlwind of hip-hop beats, spinning metallic plates and chopped up vocals. And it promises very well for Teams' debut full-length. Check "Whxt Txrns U Xn" and a demo of "Dxys Xff" below.
