Alix Perez (Belgium/UK) and Eprom (USA) (Alix Depauw and Alexander Dennis respectively) are SHADES. Alix and Eprom are bass and dance music stalwarts, who have grown to become some of the more influential artists amongst their peers today.
Their debut self titled EP (released on Alpha Pup) is a truly unique body of work. The 85 bpm onslaught is perfect for multiple genres of DJ’s. It is a hard bass driven musical anomaly that is so different, yet fits in perfectly. XLR8R have rightly said “music that's not only a legitimate full-frontal assault in the same vein as tunes from that golden era of gluttonous bass and synths, but that embraces that ethos while giving it a more polished feel”.
