Introducing ALIS

Sabina Plame, AKA Subeena, AKA Alis is back with a new release titled the Azimuth EP. Her melodic and powerful take on electronic music makes this one rather special.

First up we have 'You Can Try'. The synth-laden beginning groove gives way to a more dark and atmospheric sound, with the female vocal harmony moving in and out, creating an altogether debauched after-hours vibe. The vocal drops out and the synth comes back in, before reaching a peaking crescendo that's sure to get more than a few people's heads nodding. This is well thought out house music.

Next we have title track 'Azimuth'. With Alis pitching this one up, the crisp drums over a claustrophobic acid bassline gives this tune a distinct 'toughness'. Once again a female vocal dripping with reaching synths and pads gives the listener a short break before dropping straight back down into familiar acidic territory. D'Marc Cantu is on remix duties for this one, keeping the same attitude of the original but teasing out that groove a little more. 'Imperium' rounds off the EP, a tight little disco number, creating quite the emotive landscape through its layering of uplifting sounds and keys.

Azimuth EP - Alis [forthcoming Don't Be Afraid]

[DBA010] will be released 25th February on Don't Be Afraid, and will be available from Juno.
