The last two years have been a creative whirlwind for Alix Perez: as a producer, as a designer, as a label boss. As a human being.
After a few years in the post-Chroma Chords wilderness – a period during which he departed from Shogun Audio and redefined his vision and rediscovered his place in the bass game via two landmark EPs on Exit – the launch of his new label 1985 has revolutionised how he works and how he translates his inspirations.
Everything is considered and has a reason: it’s clear Alix had developed the vision and image of the label long before he set it up. The look, the vibe and the music policy of what he’s doing now are so strong they’re almost tangible. And it’s clearly resonating; 1985 won Best Newcomer Label at this year’s Drum & Bass Arena Awards.
