Scott Xylo revisits his high concept psychedelic world in Chapter Two: Death and Rebirth is the continuation and development of the characters and universe building of Chapter One: El Mago.

'While I was making the EP I wanted the sound and explore multiple genres to evolve with the character called the Space Wizard. I wanted to take the psychedelic approach in El Mago and make it more spiritual, progress the rock influences and make them more jazz inspired.'

Although esoteric & obscure Scott's worlds are built around a very personal themes engaging spiritual and emotional vulnerability. 'Being heavily influenced by DJ shadow and Don Cherry on this EP, I wanted to take the realms of trip hop and make it more spiritual and free. Blending samples and live instruments, while not restricting to any forms of traditional structure, I wanted this EP to feel like a progression through my own life, killing all of the darkness that was once in me and rebirthing myself from the ashes of my depression.'

As with previous transmissions Scott enlists an army of talented friends to join the party and harness their distinct energies for the pot. Below Scott breaks down the EP track by track:

'The EP starts with Death Of The Space Wizard, a dark melancholic jazz song with Udo talking about his morality, redemption and questions about his life which reflects on the Space Wizard's own life. At the end of the verse where Udo says the last words 'climb' the space wizard dies but when he dies he becomes free of all the darkness and demons that was pulling him down.' // 'In the second song Shadow Sea is my own interpretation of the afterlife for where the Space Wizard becomes reborn, the switching drum breaks and cycling of patterns was inspired by DJ Shadows break beat style and I wanted the listener to feel like they are travelling through the song like following the current from the sea. The lyric of 'am I alive' is the Space Wizard asking the question if he's still alive because he doesn't feel dead. The beat switches when the space wizard is reborn.' // 'Sanctuary is a feel good neo soul fusion vibe that takes you on a journey, I was inspired by a lot of spiritual jazz like Alice Coltrane and Michael White who also blending them with my influences of Flying Lotus and Thundercat in a new age experimental jazz fusion feel.' // 'Icarus is the last tune and the only instrumental inspired but the greek myth, I made this tune to give the feel of your flying towards the sun feeling freedom that sores beyond the earth.'
