If you live in Berlin you might have seen Lexodus perform on the street, or at least you passed by. Lexodus collaborates with a fellow artist Skid, together they make music that will most definitely give you a braingasm. Lexodus is the first ever rapper to grace a Basement Bash line-up.
“We wanted to have the genre early on, but we also wanted to find someone with an authentic live performance and not someone that would just rap on a backing track, this is why we chose Lexodus” says Basement Bash. Catch him and Skid on the 26th Oct. @ Marie Antoinette, doors open 8:30.

Lexodus; My father is ODB and my mother is Cher, with parents like this Lexodus was born into making bangers.
indieberlin: How did you get together as a band?
Lexodus; Skid saw me street performing, we stayed in touch and started working together, after time, a flower blossomed and from its sweet pollen, the bees made honey in the skull of a lion. After we fed this to a couple mates we were bound to make music together.
indieberlin: If you had to describe your music to a deaf person, what would you say?
Lexodus; Imagine drinking tutti fruity smoothie while bathing in oat milk and at the same time your toes are getting licked by a cat while a burly bearded queen is in the corner twerking.
indieberlin: If your music was a movie, which genre would it be in?
Lexodus; Rom Zom Com
indieberlin: What music do you listen to when you’re touring?
Lexodus; recently I have been listening to Black Sabbath, Bongripper, TV on the Radio, Tyler the Creator, Outkast, and Prince
indieberlin: What was your biggest stage fuck-up?
Lexodus; This one time at band camp, my penis fell out.
indieberlin: Do you prefer to play big festivals/stages or smaller club gigs?
Lexodus; each has their own charm, but as long as the sound system is on point then I am happy
indieberlin: With whom would you never share the stage with?
Lexodus; Jesus Christ
indieberlin: In ten years you look back to today and think:
Lexodus; I should never have eaten that purple crab
indieberlin: Do you dream in color or black and white?
Lexodus; color, I recently had a dream where clouds turned into large tropical type flowers and a golden pirate spaceship came soaring through the flower clouds shooting cannons. Chaos ensued and it was beautiful!
