1985 Music - Edition 1 Various Artists Edition 1 is the ninth release on Alix Perez' 1985 Music and is to be understood as a statement of intent as well as a snapshot where the label is right now. Alix has assembled his favourite artists operating within the 85bpm / 170bpm axis and the result is a coherent album that cements ties with newcomers such as Monty, Deft and Tsuruda whilst also bringing new light to existing relationships with Fracture, Ivy Lab and Chimpo amongst others. It's an exciting time for 1985 Music, an outlet that's quickly becoming known for great art across the board: be it music, clothing or design. 1985 Music LP
Dogger / Mindstate / Liam Bailey Broken Home There's been plenty of hype surrounding this collaboration between Dogger, Mindstate and Liam Bailey on Alix Perez's on-point 1985 Music label. Listening to the tracks, it's easy to see why. The trio's style is effortlessly soulful and gorgeously sun-kissed, with solid rhythms and basslines being accompanied by glistening guitar flourishes, dreamy vocals, warm pianos and chords that push positivity from and centre. Highlights are plentiful throughout, from the lilting, reggae-tinged D&B soul of "Rebels" and sumptuous sweetness of "Broken Home" - all punchy drums, twinkling pianos, cinematic strings and tear-jerking vocals - to the slowly building, ultra-deep shuffle of "So So". 1985 Music 12"
Alix Perez Numbers EP Six months deep and already onto his third 1985 release, Perez takes us back to his roots with a sublime selection of subtle work-outs; "The Raven" persists with a rattling percussive riff and droning bassline, "Drifting" swishes and sways with a slinky two-step, yearning atmospheres and lingering keys while "Inside Your Love" is a pneumatic funk trip into two-step soul. Finally "Numbers" turns the lights down with purring, naked soul. Beautiful. 1985 Music 12"
Alix Perez Nighthawks Hot on the heels of Monty's EP comes another barbed and bulging EP from 1985 bossman Alex Perez. Tapping into his darker, heavier machine funk tendencies, this is Alix in 3am drum & bass dance mode: "Lucky Charm" is a purring subby low-rider, "Blips" is straight back to 2009 with its angular two-step, sinewy sound design and badman bass and "Nighthawks" is a dark soul roller with subtle samplecraft and pranged out basses. "Missing Pieces" brings us back down to earth safe and sound with a much dreamier atmosphere wrapped lavishly around Perez's light-footed beats and Javeon's distinctive soulful tones. 1985 out of 10. 1985 Music 12"
