Oblack welcomes Italian Alex Kennon to the label this June, accompanied by a remix from Ninetoes and a fresh collaboration with Just2.
Having released on the likes of Saved Records, NONSTOP, Bedrock and Get Physical Music to name just a few, Italian producer and DJ Alex Kennon has quickly established himself as one of Europe’s most exciting rising names. With key residencies at both Maceo Plex’s Mosaic and Hot Since 82 pres. Labyrinth, Alex exploded as one of Ibiza’s most recognizable DJs. Having lined up his biggest summer yet, which is already off to a strong start with The Social Festival, Mexico, further events in June will take him to Barcelona and Belgium for Extrema Festival, before finally rounding off the year at The BPM Festival in Portugal this September. Here we see him add to his growing catalogue of music with a debut Oblack EP.
Opening proceedings, ‘Misdeed’ sees the Italian effortlessly weave together organic percussion patterns, infectious drum fills and echoed out vocals, before handing over to Ninetoes to put his stamp on the production, building on the originals aesthetic by introducing skipping hats, rumbling sub tones and hypnotic synth sweeps.
Last up, Kennon partners up with Romanian talent Just2 to deliver ‘Like This’, revealing the most up-front track and energetic production of the package as the duo raise the tempo and layer resounding kicks under acid tinged lead lines.
Alex Kennon ‘Misdeed’ EP is out on Oblack Digital Series on 25th June 2018.
