Folio / 2, the second installment in 1985 Music’s various artist EP series, has landed—and it’s guaranteed to blow the roof of your dome. The EP features heavyweights like Hyroglifics, SubMarine, Visages, Lavance, Scepticz, and of course, the label boss himself, Alix Perez. While the whole squad brings their absolute best to the proceedings, the lead cut, Alix’ “White Lies,” is the one guaranteed to have the whole dancefloor flexing.
Eerie atmospherics ease us into things before a crispy kick-snare combo drive us towards the hustling groove at the heart of the cut. And what a groove it is. Shivering layers keep evolving throughout as the top-end brings on the shivers and the mid-range gets the body moving. Just when you think you’ve got a hold of things, Alix sprinkles in some perfectly timed vocal elements that bring on the heartbreak.
If you’re looking to hit yourself with a dose of love for the mind, body and soul, then Alix has what you need. Check out the Bassrush premiere of “White Lies” below and lock in your own copy of the full Folio / 2 EP here. The EP is out today exclusively via Beatport and the 1985 Music store, and will be available from all other stores on August 23.
