Image: 1580389 Having teased us with a free download in recent weeks it’s time to present the real deal, the first official single taken from the brand new album from the unstoppable, wholly original, Alix Perez. Having laid his foundations firmly within drum & bass over the past eight years it was his debut LP back in 2009 that set a precedent for his musical ambition, being one of the first producers to really embrace the crossing of the genres, ‘1984’ astounded critics and fans the world over, gaining accolades across the board from the likes of Mixmag and DJ Mag through to the Metro newspaper and Q Magazine. Now as we get ready for the next chapter, ‘Annie’s Song’ serves as the ultimate prelude to the main event, a thoroughbred electronic masterpiece.

Hard to pigeon-hole, ‘Annie’s Song’ is a sublime slice of bright-eyed electro R&B featuring the stirring vocals of Sam Wills and some of the most sparkling production to have ever come out of the Perez studio. Plucked strings, affected vocals and fuzzy synths all melt together over a thick half-time break for a full-on future soul excursion perfect for those warmer springtime days ahead.

The vinyl version leads with the jungle remix from Hospital Records’ Brazilian tour de force, S.P.Y. As he ups the BPM’s back into drum & bass territories we’re treated to dirty percussive amen workout underpinned by a huge sub b-line and that all important Sam Wills vocal, offering a little refrain from the dance floor demolition in progress.

We’re then treated to another slice of the album with Alix himself back in D&B mode for ‘We Could Have Been’ featuring D.Ablo, a house infused piece of liquid drum & bass, full of twinkling pianos and deep, deep vibes to keep the faithful happy.
