DescriptionIs it any wonder that Alix Alvarezs music is held in such when we consider that the New Yorker learnt his trade under the watchful eyes and ears of many of house musics true visionaries. During his youth his home city was the heartbeat of house music and having ignited an interest in production he signed up to the Institue of Audio Research. Upon graduating he was given the amazing opportunity to work as an assitant sound engineer at the legendary MAW Studios. Alix took the opportunity to the fullest, learning his trade from the great Little Louie Vega and Kenny Dope Gonzales and befriending further mentors including Sandy Rivera and Osunlade. At MAW Studios Alix also met Mr. V and things really started to take off and the combination lead to his first club hit, 2007s Da Bump. Alixs debut on Ovum has been a process that goes back well over a year. Being fans of his production we reached out to him for a remix of Shlomi Abers NY Dreamer. The result was a multi week stint at the top of the Beatport Deep House Sales chart and incredible support from his peers. Since that time Alix has been working on his debut release for Ovum, the Elixr EP. This release shows the diveristy of Alixs amazing production skills and the end result is a spectacular four tracker that effortlessly glides us from the beautiful deep and warm vibes of No Loss to the jittery vocal skills of Treat Me, via the analog gem BDRK and Josh Wink favourite Champion Sound. Debuts dont get much better. Class.
