XLR8R Podcast 424: Shades (Alix Perez & Eprom)

XLR8R Podcast 424: Shades (Alix Perez & Eprom)

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global jungle chart, 2nd in the global trap chart and 5th in the global hip hop chart.


Alix Perez is the alias of Alex Depauw, the established drum & bass producer originating from Charleroi, Belgium. EPROM is the long-term adopted moniker of Alexander Dennis, a West Coast artist with early roots in mid-tempo bass and hip-hop. Together, they form SHADES, a collaborative project conceived in the summer of 2015 after they teamed up to work on Foreign Beggars’ Modus EP. Following the release of their debut self-titled EP via Alpha Pup, the duo have now returned with Powers of Two, a four-tracker that forms a perfect progression from the first and finds a luscious middle ground between the artists' diverse musical backgrounds. To mark the EPs February 5 release, and the start of their live set, we invited Perez and EPROM for their contribution to the XLR8R's podcast series. This is what they submitted.
