Used to making the electronic charts, prolific Alex Cortex introduces here his debut EP on Vienna Electro/Techno label TRUST.
With about fifty releases on labels such like Pomelo, Barba Records, Ann Aimee or Killekill just to name but a few, the versatile German artist has made a name for himself since his beginnings in 1996. Today, Alex offers with "Parallax Mind", three mental tracks calibered for the dancefloor in its typical signature.
"We Run Your Life" opens the A side on an intricate voice a la UR scanding "Robots" plus other words, while a minimalistic Electro beat progressively makes his way through the cut. Then warm percussive sequences carry on over a groovy bassline and some subtle yet discrete acid touches, leaving you speechless. Damn good!
This dystopian charmer comes completed with urban "Foam Rubber Landscaping", a combination of nice intricate sounds that melt with experimental tones and my favorite, "Memory Overload", a frantic cut characterized by creepy lyrics fused into hypnotic loops.
With Alex's "Parallax Mind", TRUST, run by the excellent DJ Glow, inaugurates a brand new "Covert Systems" trilogy completed with limited edition releases to come from regular Lok44 and Versalife. Watch this space for more info soon!
