|Always keeping a pedal to the floor whenever he jumps on a track, Memphis underground king Xavier Wulf is also one of the game’s prime purveyors of premium wheels. Today, he returns with a new video for “Pressure Gauge” which puts his love of souped-up, street-race-ready whips on full display. A highlight from Wulf’s recent GARAGE PUNK EP, produced in full by Quintin Lamb, a producer and member of Wulf’s Hollow Squad, “Pressure Gauge” is a headbanging heater that showcases Xavier’s acute ability to attack Lamb’s haunting, sinister production with ease and finesse. In the video, we find Xavier prepping his whip for a night of drifting, hitting the gas station to refuel before heading to the shop for a quick tune up. “Pressure Gauge” follows up his recent video release of “TOP DEAD CENTER” which finds him shutting down a car show with his fellow Hollow Squad brethren.
Produced in full by Quintin Lamb, the efficient 5-track, 9-minute GARAGE PUNK EP is perfectly suited for repeat listens, as Wulf sheds his sheep’s clothing and achieves a sinister symbiosis with Lamb’s horror film instrumentals. The follow-up to 2020’s RUDE DOG, a full-length collaboration between the two artists, GARAGE PUNK closed out 2021 for Xavier Wulf, a year in which he released popular loose singles like “Silver Fang Wulf“ (also produced by Lamb), and collaborated with the likes of BONES, Eddy Baker, IdonKnowJeffery, and Mikey Rotten. Earlier this month, the Memphis native dropped a new collection of merch inspired by GARAGE PUNK, designed by Wulf himself as part of his Moonstone brand.
Born in Memphis, Tennessee, and deeply steeped in his home city’s musical tradition, Xavier Wulf had a hand in nearly every major underground rap movement in the past decade. Wulf was one of the first rappers to build a following on SoundCloud, helping make the platform the go-to for aspiring rappers and establishing it as a hub of hip-hop innovation. Throughout his career, Wulf has criss-crossed the invisible line between underground and mainstream, racking up hundreds of millions of streams, and playing to sold out crowds across the country.
Pushing his sound forward with every release, Xavier Wulf is not even close to finished with his artistic journey. Stay tuned this year for more videos, an upcoming tour, and of course, plenty of new music.
