Exciting new electronic soul singer/producer ALECS confirms his debut EP ‘The Fulham Tapes’ to land on February 24th 2014.
ALECS, the 20 year old west Londoner, has been working hard in the studio with Eddy Atlantis, from ‘Xander The Great’ fame, to complete his debut three-track EP which draws on inspiration from the likes of; Autre Ne Veut, Blood Orange, The Weekend and Frank Ocean. The EP’s lead track ‘Give It Up’ has already racked up over 16,000 soundcloud plays, with minimal promotion, and has recently aired on BBC Introducing. ALECS says…
“I’ve been told ‘Give It Up’ hits the listener like a wall of sound, which probably has a lot to do with my production technique but the EP as a whole is a bit more Lo-Fi. I’m focusing on the electronic aspect of my music and it has a real post R&B vibe.”
And don’t miss the impressive new video for ‘Give It Up,’ made with a friend for just £100. Like the song itself, it’s dark and brooding – using simple chiaroscuro lighting to great effect. “It was directed by a mate of mine,” says ALECS. “It was a really quickshoot, about 3 hours. We used loads of different angles, but as it was quite a basic idea, the lighting was really important.
