Alexis Tyrel – Knowit When You See It EP

lim001 Alexis Tyrel  knowit When You See It_Alexis Tyrel’s Man In The Sky introduces itself as a no-nonsense kick and riff driven track. Although simple in nature, it is a bold and distinct. The track zeros in on the very memorable riff and the different adaptations of it that play throughout.
Changes in key, timbre and depth give this piece an eerie vibe in places and a funky vibe in others.
Cynical Slaps is a funk and percussion infused brew that slowly builds over much of the track. The blend, once more, is straight forward enough but the three main elements – dirty drums and percussion, a funky bass and a galloping synth stab all work so well together to give a sublime grooviness to this track.
Less is definitely more with Alexis’ solid and compelling Brick House. It is both straightforward and unremitting. Greater than the sum of its parts, it is a thumping example of how a few drum sounds and a catchy sample is sometimes all that a track needs to get a place moving.
