Marseille-based producer Alaix Pulse releases his latest EP Ondula at Amsterdam-based indie-label KROOKS Records. Ondula is his full EP and follow-up to the single release of Moaï back in May of this year. It reflects the broader vision of the great human experience that is his journey.
This EP continues to tell this everlasting story of traveling through oriental music and aboriginal culture before heading back to France where Alaix fused his journey together in his studio in Marseille. The changes in atmosphere between the tracks represent a person’s ability to adapt to new situations when traveling to unknown places. Using percussion instruments like congas, claves, and the maracas to emphasize this and to form a convergence between ancestral music and electronic music. Adding to the experience is the use of different synthesizers like the Juno-6 and many cross-bass elements like the vibrations of flutes and inter-kick bass elements to give the EP more depth. The release comes with hefty remixes by San Miguel and Landhouse & Raddantze.
The personality of Alaix Pulse was born in the early 2000s. Fascinated by African rhythms and natural sounds but also influenced by the pop rock culture of the 90's' of his parents. He began composing his first songs on a video game console at the age of 13. Experimentation has always been a key point in each of these musical productions, thereby exploring different genres over the years. Over time his signature sound further developed and recognition grew within the scene.
This fantastic compilation gathers tracks from some of the greatest artists in the slow world electronica genre. Each one of these tracks has its own trippy personality, and quite a few of them already made it to my and my friends' latest sets. My favorite one is by far the one by Anton Feine, which makes me dance like crazy each time I hear it. A true gem! franssu
