Jxylen – “MAD MEN” [Official Music Video]

By: Shamus Hill

In preparation for his upcoming SAVE YOURSELF EP, Jxylen just dropped the official audio and visual for his vigorous single, “Mad Men”.

Making proper use of some out-of-this-world production at the hands of Origami Beats, Jxylen wastes no time with respect to hitting listeners with a continuous stream of hard-hitting lyrics. He’s here to claim his stake within the flowering Massachusetts music scene, and this release is a telltale sign that he’s certainly on pace towards doing so. The energy he radiates here is unparalleled, with it being one of our personal favorite drops up through this point in 2019.
