With a release earlier this year for Meakusma, Berlin-based artist and instrumentalist Alexander Christou realises the launch of his solo project Al Chem. Turning in two-tracks for Munich's Compost label, with remixes, Christou shares two sides of his post-punk, electronic and synthwave sound. Going deeper and slightly darker in a way that should appeal to Nick Cave or Sisters Of Mercy fans, you'll find respite from the title-track in the lighter shades of sub-pop and synth in "Fistfull of Snow". Michael Reinboth turns in a slightly funkier mix to "Metaphysics Of Love" thanks to its dancey bassline and EBM percussion, alongside Shahrokh Dini's streamlined techno reinterpretation that does away with the gnarly bassline, focusing on Christou's cosmic vocal instead.
