Alix Perez is a producer who has always flirted with other genres. It’s a common misconception that he’s solely a drum & bass producer, but as his forthcoming album proves, this is far from the case.
Back in 2009, the Belgium born producer released the highly acclaimed LP ‘1984’, which to this day remains one of the standout drum & bass albums from the past decade. Building on those solid foundations, Perez is now looking to expand his vast repertoire.
His next offering, Chroma Chords, is set for release on May 20th and is a foray into some of Perez’s other tastes aside from drum & bass. The 12 track album features collaborations with the likes of Foreign Beggars, Two Inch Punch and Jehst, and is a smorgasbord of varying sounds.
Speaking about the album, Perez explained it’s “a snapshot of his past, present and future”, which is perhaps why it features a blend of so many different sounds.
The album is already picking up praise, with Friction and Trap Magazine amongst those singing its praises early on.
Drum & bass heads need not be completely disheartened by Perez’s forthcoming release; there’s still a few examples of his classic liquid sound, including the beautiful ‘Playing Games’ which features the dulcet tones of D.Ablo.
Catch Alix Perez at Detour on May 21st – a day after Chroma Chords drops.
