US bass stalwart Alexandre has turned his hand at myriad styles over the year, from D&B to UKG. What's more, he always nails it with authenticity, respect and, of course, sonic skill. Here we find him getting deep on a future G flex. "Dead Silent" is a tripped out two-step session while "The Struggle" shuffles and shifts with sudden dramatic synth-horn stabs and a ghetto vocal stab. "Max" takes a turn for the dark with textures of trappist flavours, "Once Again" balances light Rustie-style synth rainbows with dark acidic steppy rhythms and "Crying In The Darkness" closes the show on an emotional dubstep/breakbeat hybrid. Got a lighter? Shove it up now, Alexandre insists!
An aptly entitled EP here from Alexandre, The End of All Things does indeed herald the end of things as we know it for a time, musically at least. The title track is all shuddering bass thumps, jaunty melodies and smacking drums, whilst "Power Unlimited" ups the heavy metal factor by ten and adds in some jubilant synth work for a compelling listen. "To Kill A God" continues in a similar vein and rounds off the three-track EP with bleepy melody, grinding bassline and ADHD addled beats jumping around.
