houseYoung Turkish prodigy Aleksandir release a new EP on his own label
Young Turkish producer Alex Lawrence aka Aleksandir was undoubtedly one of the House revelations of 2018.
He had swept the House game with the release last May of a 12" of 3 tracks and two remixes "Yamaha" appeared on Tessellate. It was the eponymous track of the EP "Yamaha" that simply exploded with more than 3M plays on Youtube. The recipe for this unexpected success is a modern, progressive, harmonious House, with warm synthesizers and impeccable rhythmics.
Despite his young age, Alex decided to create his own label Artesian Sounds in 2017, with a first release of the English Harrison BDP . Aleksandir is finally back in 2019, on his label, with ARS003 a new 4-track EP that confirms the young Turk's first burst of brilliance.

The two Israelis producers are back with the second release of their "Trips" series, simply entitled Trips #2: Vietnam after Africa last year, it's in Asia they decided to settle, undoubtedly for visiting but not only ! To produce this EP, the two artists went deep in the roots of the country, it's not about obscure samples on this one but about wonderfull collaboration betwenn them and student musicians. The result of this journey is the meeting of some traditionnal instruments, of Vietnamese vocals and the " Red Axes treatment" reserved to their house-oriented tracks : instrumentalised samples and few synth notes here and there.
Reserve 24 minutes of your time and answer to the call of adventure ! You'll be well wellcomed ( Ho Chi Minh ) with a warm and exotic groove, the two following track are getting more mystical and the voice you can hear on the first ( Hanoi ) will be remplaced by an acid and tribal danse ( Phu Quok ).
