"it all makes for another interesting EP from fullbarr, which we're following more avidly with each release"- MIXMAG, feb 2012
Every so often, after trawling through hours and hours of monotonous, boring, half assed attempts at what some people list as 'quality electronic music' you will eventually unearth that hidden gem. That tune you have been waiting for that justifies all that wasted time spent listening to mind-numbing synth lines. You know, the one you can't wait to share with your mates and champion it as your discovery until the cows come home. This is how we felt when our ears were introduced to Chicago underground hero Amir Alexander for the first time.
This guy oozes class and has an unbelievably unique style of his own. He has an unbelievable knack to lock you into a trance with his bubbling analogue concoction of neatly programmed beats, hypnotic, twisting basslines and space-age atmospherics all intertwined with the odd exquisitely warped vocal to fuck with your head. He's a pretty incredible DJ too so we've been told! Founder of one of our labels to watch in 2013, Vanguard Sound, just shows how much talent Amir has surrounded himself with. If you get the chance, check them out...seriously, these guys are good! In the last couple of years the Fullbarr camp have spent many an afterparty crowded into a smokey back room vibing off Amir's Chi-town goodness and we felt the need to share the wealth.
We have put together a selection of Amir's slickest offerings for your aural pleasure.
AMIR ALEXANDER - GUTTER FLEX (ARGOT)
AMIR ALEXANDER - WHO ARE YOU? (VANGUARD SOUND)
AMIR ALEXANDER - NECESSARY SANCTUARY (3 A.M. MIX) (BEARATONE RECORDINGS)
LIVIU GROZA & KENNEDY SMITH - COULD BE ANYBODY (AMIR ALEXANDER'S DEEP DIVE REMIX) (REKIDS)
Head on over to Amir's Soundcloud for all his forthcoming releases and his past material, it's well worth the listen.
If you want to catch a rare glimpse of Amir's incredible DJ skills in the UK then you are in luck if you are in the North! Our resident dairy loving, party planners Butter Side Up have managed to tie him down for his Leeds debut with a 3 hour journey of sublime Chicago influenced house and techno cuts. If you haven't been down to one of their legendary parties before, where have you been!? Get yourselves to Wire Club, Leeds, on the 11th January 2013 and we can guarantee you a night of unparalleled underground vibes. Click HERE for the event details!
