about

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.
