The inimitable Bottom Forty label signs up Alvee for two new singles that come with remixes by Kitschy Kitsch, Ali X x Ximena and JT Almon.
Antonio Alvarez aka Alvee is a producer from Torreón, Mexico who has previously released on Controlla as well as remixes for Tronik Youth, Bad Wolf and Ali X & Ximena. Here he presents two songs that are born from synthesised analog sounds with dark atmospheres made directly for the dance floor.
Opener ‘Soy’ is all about the club, with a progressive bass line stacked with rhythm and a screaming synth that builds tension throughout. The excellent ‘Sombra’ carries a predominant and percussive bass with a mysterious melody that transcends you to a new world with a spaced-out atmosphere that is utterly absorbing.
Nein Records associate Kitschy Kitsch remixes ‘Soy’ and goes for a dark and shady version that prowls in an urban wasteland with cosmic melodies and stark hits making for a jerking rhythm. New York-based JT Almon from labels like IAMSIAM then offers a ‘Sombra’ remix that is pure rave energy, with stone lit synths and big hits that make a real impact.
Ali X x Ximena put out their own ‘Welcome to My World’ EP on Bottom Forty in 2018 now make a welcome return with their take on ‘Sombra’. It’s a twisted techno track with a brilliantly warped bassline that will make any dancer cut loose.
Alvee ‘Tu, Yo’ drops on Bottom Forty Records on 9th April 2020.
