Bass assassin dream team Alix Perez and EPROM debut Shades,
a commanding new EP on Alpha Pup Records. Fresh and dynamic,
the four-track release tickles the limbic system with gravity-distorting
bass and inspired hooks.
“The Serpent” cuts a swathe through the dance floor, underpinned
by an imperious, gritty bassline, replete with head-turning percussion
cuts. The back-swung “Chiron” cloaks a devious, neck-snapping riff
in warped melodic deviations.
Woozy percussion sits aloft an unsettled slab of electric bassweight
on“Minotaur”. And“Into Light”juxtaposes glory-era rave power chords
and arpeggios against echoes of g-funk and hyphy - culminating in
a tuned-up footwork flex-out.
Vivid. Searing. Groundbreaking. Shades is a gripping release by two
masters of their craft.
