1985 Music

1985 Music is a forward-thinking electronic music label with its roots cemented in 170 / 85bpm and beyond. Founded by Alix Depauw aka Alix Perez in 2016, the London-based label has seen stand out releases from the likes of: Dogger, Fracture, Halogenix, Hyroglifics, Mindstate, Monty, Skeptical, Spectrasoul, Visages... and of course, the big bossman Perez himself. Expect anything from deep soulful D&B flavours to moody minimal rollers, half-time steppers and the occasional weighty dubstep production thrown in for good measure. Perez also drives the label’s overall creative output, monochrome aesthetic and popular merch range.

Review: 1985 digging deep into the 140/170 axis with its fully internatty crew once again. Some of the tunes have become in demand 2022 IDs already - including Monty and Visages's 'Tek' and Alix Perez's beautiful 'Not Alone' - other highlights include the monstrous junglism of ICJ's 'Metrodome', Visages' woozy blues on 'Love Conspiration', Cesco's happy-slapping 'No Fuss' and Paige Julia's almighty 'Ease Your Mind'. What a collection, 1985 doing the absolute business right now!

Review: Boom! Calibre on 1985. Do we need to write anything else here? Not really... It's Calibre remixing an absolute gem from Dogger, Mindstate and Liam Bailey, adding his touches just where it's needed and giving a modern day classic a fresh new chapter. As if that's not enough we also have 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' with man like DRS. A dreamy, subtle ebbing/flowing cut that's gentle and full of emotion and soul, it's yet another precision melancholy soul moment from Alix Perez's label. Essential.

Review: When it comes to underground dance music, there are few outposts of creativity that are boasting as high a rate of success as Alix Perez's '1985'. We are blessed to take a look into a window of that creativity with this monstrous new collection of sonic sizzlers as Shades, Alix himself and Eprom join forces for the explosive 'From A Vein' album project. This is a true showcase of mastery in our eyes, from the sub-rattling drones of 'Into Stone' to the super electronic syncopation of 'As Wax By Seal' and acidic arpeggios of 'Deceitful Ways'. We are thrown in about 1000 different directions over the course of this 14 track masterclass, with our favourite creations having to include the remarkably chirpy 'Purification' alongside Gaslamp killer, exploring organic drum breaks and super digitised basslines, next to satanic melodic sweeps of 'Sub Noctem' and unpredictable metallic soundscapes of 'Immortals', welcoming MC GQ into the fold at the same time. Outstanding!

Review: Following jams on Bowlcut and Monk earlier this year, Cesco returns to the 1985 mothership with this mighty fine mixed bag of 140/174 treats. 'Rattler' says it all. Curmudgeonly and grizzly, it sizzles out of the speakers with pure venom. Elsewhere on a D&B tip En:vy gets mucked in on tippy harmonics of 'Esoteric' while 'Pity' is all jazzy, slinky and full of tension. Meanwhile on the 140 flip 'El Guapo' is proper hammer jam with a most unruly bassline Q&A while 'Juan40' will have you speaking Spanish before you can say 'wheel up the bloodclart'. Rattle and roll!

Review: Don't fear the reaper! Everyone's favourite Belgian D&B collective return to 1985 with this smouldering four tracker of deep, dark, speaker-rumbling sounds. Having already teased us with the loose subby swagger of 'Aloose' and the high frequency fire of 'Trench', the EP is now complete with two more unruly late night uppercuts: the dramatic arpeggios and eerie tension of 'Grim Reaper' and the neck-snap steppery of 'Cuffed'. Killer EP.

Review: It's always a good day when we see new music landing from the legendary 1985 Music team, who continue to push some of the most exciting and experimental electronic sounds out there right now. This latest four track collection kicks off with founder and sonic mastermind: Alix Perez unleashing a bulbous display of gnarly steppers energy on 'VTRN', jam-packed with sliding LFO's and intricate drum designs, followed by the stuttered rhythms and delicately designed percussive layers of 'Shush' from HIJINX, which also packs a seriously bassy punch to match. The don Ebb then touches down with another chilling creation in 'Ill Rest', maneuvering horrorcore soundscapes and luminescent bass sweeps, before the sizzling reesey tones and clunky drum work of Epoch's 'Beastmode' round the EP off with some serious finesse. Exceptional work as per!

Review: Oh boy... Visages back on 1985 with another massive dub that's been doing the round: if you haven't heard 'Lunar Eclipse' with the truly electric vocals from Strategy in the dance or on mixes over the last few months, you haven't been paying attention. The exceptional collabos continue as Drone joins the French gang for a samurai session on the spooked-out 140 slammer 'Hagakure'. Up next: a fusion of young and old as 'Familiarity' (with Monty) warms up with a Virus-style flavour before going full 2022 venom on our asses and 'Sunshine Mystery' closes the EP with a note of Sunday morning soul. Easy.

Review: Alix Perez and DLR together, smashing out four massive slugs for our mixing and dancing pleasure... What a treat to ease us into 2022 with! It's instant brilliance as SP joins the fray on the opening track 'Keep Up', a roller laced with subtle but deadly energy and funk. Deeper into the EP, 'Blips' is reminiscent of early Virus material with its heads-down vibe and razor-like stabs, 'Snake Style' is all about those big subby wobbles while 'Crawlway' is just pure bassline treacle oozing out of your speakers uncontrollably. What a link-up!

Review: Bonjour! Monty finally delivers his debut artist album and it's an absolute gem from start to finish. Featuring the many cuts he's been teasing over the last few months ('Hardware', 'Vibin' etc) the album takes a deep dive into every sound on the young Frenchman's palette. Flexing from the gnarled 140 bubbles and bumps of 'Dreamer' (with 1985 bossman Alix Perez himself) and the spacey garage vibes of 'Walking Home' to the soulful roll of 'Birdland' (with fellow Toulousian Redeyes) and the electroid night creeping title track, this is the full Monty on levels we've never seen before. Bass music across the whole menu, it's one of those rare LPs that will both slay a club and work well in any other listening scenario. Bonsoir!

Review: Time flies when you're meddling at the forefront of bass innovation... While the label still feels so new and fresh, it's already been five years of dark soul gold from 1985. To celebrate, bossman Alix Perez has curated these exceptional remixes from the gang that span from Sam Binga's slick and sexy UKG twist of 'Melodrama' to Skeptical's sub aquatic switch of 'Trinity' via Monty's cavernous space funk flip of 'ABR'. Complete with plenty more goodies from the likes of DLR, Visages and Break, this marks five years in 1985's signature high benchmark style. Here's to another five years.

Review: As an imprint, 1985 have always championed the weird and wonderful, which is why this fabulous new four track adventure from Tsuruda fits so perfectly. We begin our treacherous tale with 'Fugitive', which sees the man himself, Mr Alix Perez arrive on collaborative duty, supplying us with a truly magnificent journey through syncopated rhythm and synthetic action. Next, 'Kaioh' once again throws us wonky drum arrangements and other-worldy soundscaping, drawing us in with some fantastic compositional value, before the creeping melodic manoeuvres and grizzly low-ended writhes of 'Out Of Pocket' launch themselves forward. We then dive down a whole new hole of sonic depravity, as the gut-wrenching synth swipes of 'Migi' provide us with a suitably eye-opening outro. What a project it is!
