Alex Over returns on his promising Over Recordings label with his latest single, the excellent '24 Steps' backed with a host of remixes...
Alex Over's debut release earlier this year coincided with the launch of his Over Recordings imprint and received extensive DJ support as well as broad critical acclaim. The young DJ/Producer from London had previously established himself playing at venues such as Ministry of Sound, The Lightbox & Raduno but it's with the launch of Over Recordings that his profile has really taken off, seeing the likes of Xpress- 2, Ian Pooley & Terry Francis playing his music and reviews across the globe.
Now Over is back with his brand new release, the excellent '24 Steps', a record that takes inspiration from his 24 years on the planet and the music and people that have moved him to create. The release gets going with the original version, an emotive and atmospheric track that fuses broken beats and house elements to give a very UK sound. Intricate layers of FX and edits are melded together to make a record that is both distinctive and original, quality stuff.
The first of the remixes sees 3AM Recordings label boss Al Bradley take the reins with a mix that has a truly classic house feel to it. Built around warm bass, old school stabs and shuffling drums this is an instant winner. Next up we have Shades of Grey man Owen Howells, who delivers a deep and percussive mix that is certain to find favour with DJs everywhere with its hypnotic groove and rolling rhythms. The penultimate mix comes from Leeds based producer Josh Butler who takes time out from recent work with Darius Syrossian and Andre Crom to turn in a wonderfully punchy, bass driven mix that is a guaranteed floorfiller. Finally we have the excellent Michael Scott at the controls, here he turns in a superb version of '24 Steps' that walks the line between main room aesthetics and underground sensibilities.
Alex over has delivered another stellar record that is set to cement his position in the UK's ever changing electronic music scene, enjoy!
